inShare Pdf Implant Sciences Corp sells more QS-H150 explosives detectors to China airports

Security systems and sensors supplier Implant Sciences Corp (OTCQB:IMSC) said Thursday it has sold its portable explosives trace detector, the Quantum Sniffer QS-H150, to three more airports in China.
Thursday's news marks the second recent order for aviation security in China, the company said. Last month, the company said it sold seven QS-H150 devices to an airport in China.
Both sales were made through Implant Sciences' Beijing-based distributor Jing An Lan Dun Sciences and Technology Co.
"The QS-H150 has had strong traction with aviation security in China, and the addition of three more airports to our customer base is a sign of just how well regarded our products are," said president and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc.
"In the next three years, China is expected to expand or add over 100 airports around the country. We look forward to supporting this growth with both new and repeat orders."
Indeed, according to the China Daily, China is planning to expand as many as 91 of its existing 175 airports between 2011 and 2015, while adding 56 new ones and potentially relocating 16 others.
Implant said its distribution channels are well positioned for this growth, as well as the expected boost in the rail and subway markets in China.
The company has been expanding the sales of its QS-H150 to international markets. Last month, it said that a major global oil corporation had purchased units of the QS-H150, to be used in securing the unnamed oil business' facilities in Africa.
This followed new orders for the device from the Middle East and Japan.
Implant Sciences' systems are used by private companies and government agencies to screen baggage, cargo, vehicles, among other objects, and people for the detection of trace amounts of explosives.
The QS-H150 is a handheld explosives trace detector that rapidly detects trace amounts of a number of military, commercial, and homemade explosives. The QS-H150 uses no radioactive materials.
Implant's other main product, the Quantum Sniffer QS-B220, which was introduced in May 2011, is a trace detector that uses ion mobility spectrometry to identify a number of military, commercial and homemade explosives and narcotic substances.
The benchtop explosives and narcotics detector is suited for a number of security settings, including high-traffic airports, borders, and prisons.
In December, the QS-B220 device received CE Certification, an important step for generating sales in Europe, and in February, achieved ASTM E2520-07 certification.
Implant also signed a cooperative research and development agreement with the Transportation Security Laboratory, which has been working closely with the QS-B220 product to help the company in preparing for TSA qualification and certification.
