WILMINGTON, Mass., Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection (ETD) and drugs trace detection solutions for homeland security applications, announced that it will exhibit at the 13th Transport Security Expo (Transec) from December 2-3, 2015 in London, United Kingdom. Implant Sciences will have its QS-B220 Desktop Explosives and Drugs Trace Detector available for demonstrations in booth G-1.
The Transport Security Expo is the global platform, bringing together government, industry and academia to counter the threat against transportation networks around the world. The Transport Security Expo in its 13th edition with over 4,500 attendees and 200 exhibitors is the vital platform for providers of security solutions to meet critical end-user decision makers with high-value contracts to place.
Implant Sciences' Chief Operating Officer, Todd Silvestri, will be speaking on "The Benefits of ETDs with Low False Alarm Rates". A recent EU mandate, which took effect September 1, 2015 for airports with over 500,000 passengers, requires the screening of 15% of passengers and additional regulations for smaller airports are scheduled to follow. The majority of these airports chose to comply with the regulation with Explosives Trace Detection (ETD) systems. Implant Sciences will demonstrate how EU airports can save money on their security screening operations by utilizing ETD systems with critical performance features, such as a low False Alarm Rate (FAR).
"Implant Sciences' technology has revolutionized the trace detection industry. Our ETD systems are recognized for having the lowest false alarm rate in the industry and other differentiating features that help make checkpoint screening effective, efficient and speedy. We look forward to demonstrating its importance to airport operators at the event," stated Todd Silvestri, Implant Sciences' Chief Operating Officer. "We are happy to exhibit at Transec and to showcase our thought leadership in this area of expertise."
