Implant Sciences (OTC:IMSC), a maker of sensors and security systems for homeland security markets, said Thursday it delivered units of its portable explosives trace detector to an international bank in the Middle-East.
The Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 is a hand-held explosives trace detector that detects trace amounts of several military, commercial and homemade explosives.
The name of the major international bank was not disclosed in Thursday’s press release.
Wilmington, Massachusetts-based Implant said the Middle-East is a key growth region where it has "had success selling explosives trace detection units for both commercial and military deployments".
"The acceptance and demand for our Quantum Sniffer units in what is one of the most security-oriented regions of the world is a testament to the value our devices offer to users," chief executive Glenn Bolduc said in a statement.
"Of the many options for explosives detection available on the market today, the Quantum Sniffer continues to emerge as a top choice of security experts globally."
Earlier this month, the company reported that it received more orders for its hand-held trace detector explosives device, which were deployed at two nuclear plants in Japan.
As of early January, over $1 million worth of the devices had been shipped to that country.
In addition, just last month, the company said it received CE certification for its QS-B220 explosive and narcotics detector.
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 and borders. It is currently being tested by security organizations globally, the company said.
Implant Sciences makes and develops technologies used for commercial explosive trace detection. Its 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.
