PureSpectrum, Inc. Completes Dimmable CFL Design for 220/240-Volt Power Source

Seamless Application of Circuitry to International Line Voltage Standard Prepares Company for Distribution Outside the U.S.

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2008) - Engineers from PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) have completed a circuitry redesign which successfully applies PureSpectrum's proprietary dimmable ballast for Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) to the 220/240 voltage which is the line voltage standard for the majority of countries outside of the United States.

The circuitry modification, which is protected both domestically and internationally under PureSpectrum's existing patent applications, will support PureSpectrum's ongoing marketing and sales efforts for the company's dimmable CFL. The company recently received a multimillion dollar investment commitment from Emirates International Capital Advisory and plans to offer product distribution in Dubai.

"As global interest in green technology and the reduction of carbon footprints continues to grow, PureSpectrum will be ready to capitalize on new opportunities in international markets as they arise," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "We are certain that the products and technologies we have engineered are universally appealing within the multibillion dollar lighting industry, and our objective is to capture a percentage of worldwide market share through both direct sales of PureSpectrum product and licensing our technology to be integrated into products from existing manufacturers. But the technology must be in place first, so adapting the circuitry to the international power input standard was the first fundamental step in gaining market share."

PureSpectrum, which has introduced innovative dimmable ballast circuitry for CFL and linear fluorescents during the past year, will launch its own proprietary brand of CFLs in North American Free Trade Agreement countries in the first quarter of 2009. PureSpectrum's unique ballast design for CFLs streamlines energy usage, enables true dimming capability and incorporates high Power Factor into the ballast. The company will be able to offer a cost effective, high performance dimmable CFL with performance properties that will resonate with consumers worldwide.

Data generated through independent testing conducted during the past few months has conclusively proven that PureSpectrum's technology provides a decided performance advantage over any brand name dimmable CFL on the market by enabling both linear regressive dimming and a proportional reduction of power consumption during dimming. In addition to more reliable dimming capability, PureSpectrum's dimmable CFL contains far fewer components than conventional dimmable CFLs, allowing the eventual retail cost to be substantially lower than any product currently on the market. All PureSpectrum CFLs will be fully dimmable and compliant with established performance standards set forth by Energy Star, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
