Massachusetts-based Implant Sciences Corp. (OTCQB:IMSC) announced Wednesday a contract to supply 11 additional explosives trace detectors to China for use by police departments and bomb squads.
Company shares increased 8.15 per cent to $1.46 Wednesday afternoon.
The supplier of security systems and sensors to the homeland security

handheld explosives trace detectors to China.
The sale was made through Implant Sciences'
in-country distributor and service provider, Beijing Ritchie Link.

"With hundreds of systems deployed in a wide variety of security
applications across the country, our products have a well-established
reputation for quality and reliability," said the company’s vice
president of sales and marketing, Darryl Jones.
"It's that reputation that helps the QS-H150 maintain its position as one of the top choices in the Chinese security market."
President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc, added: "Implant Sciences' goal is to maintain its leadership role in the region as the market continues to evolve and grow."
The company announced yesterday that it was featured in an ABC
affiliate news segment Monday for its explosives detection machines,
where the ABC affiliate WCVB described it as “a Wilmington company on
the front lines of airport security.”
According to the report, which took a look at how the detection
machine’s technology works, Implant’s machines could be used in US
airports within months.
The company stated it has developed new technology that can detect
ever changing threats from terrorists. Importantly, the devices do not
use any radioactive materials.
In the report, Implant staff says they believe their equipment can
detect the chemical commonly used in underwear bombs laced with
explosives or even implanted body bombs.
Implant's machines are currently under review by the Transportation
Safety Authority and could appear in US airports in the next year.
