PureSpectrum, Inc. Set for Second Round of Testing on Dimmable CFL Technology

Following Discussions With Major Manufacturers, Improvements Expected in Overall Performance and Energy Efficiency

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) is preparing for a second session of photometric testing on its proprietary dimming technology for Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs.

The unique linear regression test, which was designed by PureSpectrum's advance technology team, will take place at a NVLAP-certified laboratory in Colorado and will measure the performance of a 36-watt CFL prototype bulb powered by PureSpectrum's innovative electronic ballast topology. Initial testing on the dimmable technology performed earlier this year revealed dimming performance that is superior to commercially available brand name CFL bulbs.

Earlier this year, PureSpectrum filed patent applications for a ballast design and dimming device which have generated praise within the lighting industry as the most effective dimming mechanisms for CFL bulbs.

The company had planned to test multiple dimmable CFL prototypes of varying wattages later this month, but inquiries from a potential licensing partner led to an accelerated testing schedule for the 36-watt prototype. The 36-watt prototype produces light output equivalent to a 150-watt incandescent bulb and can be dimmed in linear regression down to five percent of perceived light output.

"We will still adhere to our schedule of testing multiple prototypes to prove that our technology is fully scalable across the full range of CFL bulb wattages," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "At the same time, we have told our shareholders that we are focused on generating revenue as soon as possible, and we are going be flexible in order to accommodate requests from lighting manufacturers that could become licensing partners. We anticipate that this round of testing will indicate that improvements have been made as we continue the movement toward developing a universal CFL bulb."

PureSpectrum is on the leading edge of the movement to improve CFL bulbs through innovative perspectives and superior technologies. The company currently owns the rights to several patents, patent applications and patents pending related to an innovative electronic ballast technology which dramatically improves performance for CFL bulbs and other ballast-driven lighting applications without sacrificing energy efficiency or bulb longevity.

During the past year, PureSpectrum's advance technology team has made substantial breakthroughs in the performance of CFL bulbs through superior ballast electronics. Most recently, the company filed patent applications pertaining to important advances in dimmable CFL technology and a highly energy efficient ballast for CFL bulbs which also preserves the lamp's longevity.
