 THERMEDICS EXPLOSIVES DETECTORS INSTALLED IN INDONESIA
 WOBURN, Mass., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The EGIS(R) explosives detector, manufactured by Thermedics Inc. (AMEX: TMD), has been installed in three airports in Indonesia. The systems were purchased over the summer in response to an urgent request by the Indonesian government that the units be delivered in time for the 10th summit meeting of the Nonaligned Movement (NAM) states which was held there last month.
 The summit meeting was attended by 57 heads of state, as well as U.N. Secretary General Bruthos-Bruthos Ghali. According to S. Suharli, president of P.T. Professtama Teknik Cemerlang, Thermedics' exclusive distributor in Indonesia, "Thermedics was able to respond very quickly to the government's security requirements for this important summit meeting. I am very pleased that Indonesia has become the first country in Southeast Asia to install the EGIS." EGIS systems are now operating at airports in Jakarta and Bali.
 The EGIS system utilizes vapor/particle-detection technology and high-speed chemical analysis to identify trace amounts of dangerous explosives, including the plastics that have proven so difficult to detect using conventional security measures. The EGIS explosives detector has been widely accepted in the field of international aviation security for screening both carry-on and checked baggage. More than 40 EGIS systems are currently deployed at airports throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.
 Thermedics develops, manufactures, and markets biomaterials, biomedical products, analytical instruments, and explosives- and drug- detection devices, and provides analytical laboratory services. Thermedics is a public subsidiary of Thermo Electron Corporation (NYSE: TMO).
