Implant Sciences' QS-H150 Receives Ministry of Public Security Certification in China

Certification further expands public security opportunities in China

WILMINGTON, Mass., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB:IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced today its QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detector has received an important regulatory certification in China from the Chinese Ministry of Public Security. This marks the latest in a series of key product certifications for Implant Sciences, including STAC in France and TSA's qualification for air cargo screening in the US. 

Implant Sciences has been active in the China market for several years. China represents an important market for the Company, one where it has generated over $20 million in sales to date. Its explosives trace detectors have been deployed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Beijing subway stations, and are in use for aviation security and critical infrastructure protection. In July 2013, the Company opened a representative office in Shanghai.

"This Ministry of Public Security certification opens the doors for us to compete for additional public security contracts issued by the Chinese government. We believe this will significantly expand our sales opportunities in China, where we already have a strong presence and our products have a stellar reputation for performance and cost efficiency," stated Glenn D. Bolduc, Implant Sciences' President and CEO.

Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones, added, "The results of these stringent certification tests further demonstrate the strength of our QS-H150. Notable accomplishments in the testing were the very rapid clear-down time, which is essential for high traffic screening areas, the large number and variety of explosives detected at minute levels, and the system's performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments."

About the QS-H150 Handheld Explosives Trace Detector
The QS-H150 utilizes Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology, providing fast, accurate detection of trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives. Built with no radioactive materials and featuring a low-maintenance, self-calibrating, and self-clearing design, the QS-H150 provides very high levels of operational availability. The QS-H150 has been proven to perform well in a wide variety of temperatures and challenging environments, from humid jungles to dry, sand swept deserts.
