PureSpectrum, Inc. Continues Patenting Process for Multiple Technologies

Lighting Technology Company Moving Toward Three Additional Patents Pending This Month

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - July 2, 2008) - PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) will further solidify its intellectual property portfolio by filing patent applications for three provisional patents to be upgraded to patent applications by the end of July.

PureSpectrum, which owns several patents and patents pending related to electronic ballast technology, plans to file applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for patent application status for dimmable ballast technology for Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs, a dimmable ballast design for linear fluorescent bulbs and a two-wire dimming device for CFL bulbs.

According to lighting industry experts, dimming is a critical issue for fluorescent lighting as the country prepares for the legislated extinction of incandescent bulbs in 2012. PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta said protecting his company's dimming technology through the patenting process is essential because PureSpectrum is the only lighting technology company to engineer a ballast circuitry design that enables CFL bulbs to dim without interruption like incandescent bulbs have dimmed for decades.

"Our goal from the outset has been to engineer our technology to be compatible with the production process for lighting manufacturers, and we are now in the process of patenting technologies which have been refined with input received from major lighting manufacturers," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "Rather than operating blindfolded, we intentionally addressed our technologies to issues within the lighting industry, and we've been rewarded with open lines of communication and positive feedback from major manufacturers. The continuation of the patenting process is simply an extension of the vision that produced the corporate strategy we have followed during the development process."

The company is engaged in ongoing discussions with several prospective licensing partners in the lighting industry, and multiple lighting manufacturers have conducted private performance tests on the dimming technology during the past three months. PureSpectrum recently commissioned additional independent testing at the request of potential licensees, and the company continues to refine the technologies based on feedback gleaned from interactions with lighting manufacturers.
