EU certification for colour X ray technology wi...

Kromek /
EU certification for colour X ray technology will see the end of liquid flight 
Processed and transmitted by Thomson Reuters.

                        Major coup for innovator Kromek

25(th) October  2010: Global technology  innovator Kromek  has received official
European  Union  (EU)  certification  to  provide  colour x-ray liquid detection
systems to all European airports.

By April 2011, liquid items bought in transit (i.e. duty free purchases) will be
allowed   on  board,  providing  the  appropriate  security  measures,  such  as
screening,  are in place at the airports  concerned. The results of the European
Civil  Aviation Conference (ECAC) led trials  prove that the technology is ready
to allow the 2011 regulatory deadline to be met by the airports. By April 2013,
the  ban will be lifted completely, allowing  the carriage of liquids on flights
across Europe.

Kromek's  Bottle Scanner has qualified as a Category B device, that has achieved
Type  1 and  Type  2 100% capability  and  been  officially tested, verified and
authorised  by ECAC. As  of now, all  EU airports are  free to buy and implement
Kromek's Bottle Scanner product.

"It's  a significant milestone for Kromek as the approved listing is vindication
that colour x-ray detection has been proven," said Arnab Basu, CEO, Kromek. "The
next  generation of  X-ray technology  has arrived,  with a market ready machine
that can detect liquid threats."

Kromek's  revolutionary technology signals a new  era in colour x-ray detection,
and   a  market-changing  development  in  aviation  security.  The  company  is
introducing  to the sector a truly pioneering  form of detection, which has been
likened  to  the  advent  of  colour  TV,  from  black  and  white,  in terms of
significance and market potential.

 "To  be named  by EU  regulators as  an authorised  provider of a revolutionary
solution  to one of the greatest threats  to civil aviation currently is a major
moment in Kromek's history," continued Basu.

"The  threat from Liquid, Aerosol and Gel (LAG) based explosives became apparent
in August 2006 following discovery of a plot to use such devices aboard multiple
transatlantic flights. Although Kromek had not set out to produce such equipment
we were quick to realise with our capabilities we had the versatility to produce
a solution for this market need".

Kromek's  verified  and  approved  solution  effectively  guards  against such a
possibility.  It is a major  step forward in the  fight against global terrorism
where liquid is increasingly becoming a common tool for terrorist use and we are
proud to be able to contribute to the national security."

Basu  concluded: "The next year and beyond  is extremely exciting for us. Kromek
will  continue to  see strong  growth over  the coming  years as  our innovative
solutions  to many previously intractable problems captures the imagination. Our
groundbreaking  technology not  only provides  products to  the airline security
market but has the opportunity for development into a range of products for many
highly  lucrative markets  such as  medical and  industrial fields, where we are
already beginning to get commercial traction".


Notes to editors


Founded  in 2003 and  formerly known  as Durham  Scientific Crystals, Kromek was
spun out of Durham University's physics department.

Kromek  specialises in the development of  disruptive technology solutions for a
broad  range of  commercial markets.  It is  currently pioneering digital colour
imaging for x-rays and advanced 3D imaging for the medical, security, industrial
inspection and defence markets.

Since  its inception  the company  has grown  from a  two-man operation  into an
organisation employing over 50 people in its UK and Californian operations.

The company has successfully pioneered a revolutionary 3D x-ray technology which
has  huge commercial  benefits for  a range  of sectors,  especially the airline
security  industry,  where  it  is  uniquely  placed  to  fulfil  an increasing,
necessary worldwide demand for liquid explosive detection at airports.

In  2009, CEO Arnab Basu won Young Entrepreneur of the Year at Ernst and Young's
coveted business awards.

The  company  was  also  named  Best  Security  SME at the 2009 Global Challenge
Awards,  which acknowledges the challenges  young, innovative security companies
face  in their goals for success. As a result, Kromek received $400,000 from the
Technical  Support Working  Group (TSWG)  department of  the US  government, the
national  research  and  development  arm  for  combating  terrorism at home and
