Implant Sciences Corp. (PINK:IMSC) has sold another 10 units of its Quantum Sniffer handheld explosive trace detector this time to a client in Romania, the company said.
The units will be deployed in many applications to help ensure the security of this European nation, the company said in a statement.
Business Plus, a Romanian-based distributor, provides logistics, security, operational and safety gear. It marks the first sale of Implant's systems in that country.
"We are pleased to announce the success of our Romanian distributor, Business Plus, in securing this key order and we are proud that our technology will be utilized to fulfill the security needs," Implant's chief executive Glenn D. Bolduc said.
"Countries throughout the world are facing persistent and increasing threats from improvised explosive devices. The operational and cost advantages of our technology continue to drive purchasing decisions in our favour".
The QS-H150 handheld device can rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a number of military, commercial and homemade explosives.
The company's other main product, the Quantum Sniffer QS-B220, is a trace detector that uses ion mobility spectrometry to identify a number of military, commercial and homemade explosives and narcotic substances. It was introduced in May, 2011.
The benchtop explosives and narcotics detector is suited for a number of security settings, including high-traffic airports, borders, and prisons.
Implant's systems are used by private companies as well as government agencies to screen baggage, cargo, vehicles and people for the detection of trace amounts of explosives and narcotics.
