WILMINGTON -- Implant Sciences Corp. announced Thursday that it has won a contract worth about $585,000 to supply an undisclosed number of its Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 explosives-trace detectors to an unnamed government agency.
The QS-H150 is a handheld device that provides detection of trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial and homemade explosives.
Todd Swearingen, a general manager for Implant Sciences, said in a statement that the company's products "are capable of fulfilling counter-terrorism needs in a wide range of environments."
In January, Implant Sciences became only the third explosives-trace detection maker, and the sole American-owned company, to receive product approval from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.
Shares of the company were trading at $1.10, up a nickel, in the over-the-counter trading as of 11:15 a.m.
