Axis Technologies, Inc. Receives Underwriters Laboratories Approval for New Design 2-Lamp Ballasts

Unfilled Orders Awaiting UL Approval to Be Shipped Immediately

LINCOLN, NE--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXTG), a green technology designer, manufacturer and marketer of a proprietary line of energy-saving daylight harvesting electronic dimming ballasts for the commercial lighting industry, announced today that the company received the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approval for the slim line 2-lamp ballasts. This "green" ballast was specifically designed to fit into newer architecturally designed fixtures and still retain the energy efficiency of the previous Axis ballasts.

Mr. Jim Erickson, President of Axis Technologies, said, "We are very pleased to receive UL approval for our new 2-lamp ballast. With the requisite UL marking, Axis Technologies can now begin to fill orders that have been received but were withheld from shipping until the awaited approval. The UL approval of our new design 2-lamp ballast will make the future testing and approval of our 3- and 4-lamp ballasts and T5 ballasts much quicker and easier since the designs are similar."

About Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (

Axis Technologies Group, Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary, Axis Technologies, Inc., designs, manufactures and markets a proprietary line of energy-saving and daylight harvesting electronic dimming ballasts for the commercial lighting industry. The patented Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballast is a new technology that transforms the standard ballast into a dynamic energy saving system that can reduce lighting energy costs by up to 70%. The company's target market is small to large commercial users of fluorescent lighting to include office buildings, wholesale and retail buildings, hospitals, schools, and government buildings. The Axis Ballast utilizes an individual photo sensor to automatically adjust the amount of electrical current flowing to the light fixture and then dims or increases lighting in conjunction with the amount of available sunlight. The Axis Ballast avoids "over-lit" conditions that increase energy costs by harvesting and utilizing free daylight from windows or skylights. As the amount of available daylight fluctuates, the Axis Ballast automatically keeps lighting "tuned" to the desired level in a designated area. ( Underwriters Laboratories has approved Axis products for sale in both the United States and Canada. The Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting ballast is priced competitively and is the only daylight harvesting ballast system that can be marketed as a replacement for a standard ballast. Numerous utilities have included the Axis ballast in their rebate programs offered to their commercial and government customers.
