WAKEFIELD, Mass., 12 Oct. 2007. Implant Sciences Corp. has shipped six units of its Quantum Sniffer BTS Benchtop Explosives Detection System (QS-BTS) for delivery to the Beijing police. The QS-BTS, along with previously shipped Quantum Sniffer H100 and H150 Portable Explosives Detectors, is expected to be used in connection with security and anti-terrorism efforts during the 2008 Olympic Games to be held in Beijing.

A high-ranking official of the Ministry of Public Security in China indicated that terrorism posed the biggest threat to the holding of a successful Beijing Olympic Games. A second high-ranking official of the Ministry also noted that although the Olympic Games are a happy gathering for people from all countries, it is also a big target for terrorism.

The QS-BTS, using the company's patented Vortex collector technology for sample collection and Quantum Sniffer technology for explosives detection, provides the advanced analytical capabilities expected of a desktop detection device while providing the flexibility of a portable, handheld detection device.

The Vortex collector technology, which offers the ability to collect samples of vapors and particulate matter in both non-contact and contact modes, is combined with the Quantum Sniffer detection technology making possible the detection of nanogram (i.e., parts per trillion) amounts of a variety of explosive substances commonly used by terrorists.
