PureSpectrum, Inc. Strengthens Position in Lighting Industry Through Appearance at LightFair International

Electronic Ballast Technology Continues to Receive Positive Feedback and Interest From Major Lighting Manufacturers

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Following meetings and demonstrations that took place during LightFair International in Las Vegas at the end May, PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) is now in discussions with nine major lighting manufacturers regarding potential licensing agreements for the company's electronic ballast lighting technologies for fluorescent lighting.

"This is the perfect time for us to enter into these relationships with manufacturers because we're being contacted by consumers frustrated by the search for dependable dimmable bulbs and wondering why lighting manufacturers are not embracing our technology to put a dimmable bulb that works on store shelves," said PureSpectrum vice president for sales Garth Kullman.

During the past year, PureSpectrum has engineered ballast technology solutions that address both manufacturability and functionality. During the first two quarters of 2008, the company introduced dimmable ballast circuitry for both Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs and linear fluorescents, and independent testing performed on prototypes powered by PureSpectrum's ballast technology revealed that the circuitry enables linear regressive dimming for both bulb types.

Additionally, the PureSpectrum ballast designs contain fewer electronic components than commercially available brand name ballasts. The resulting lower cost to manufacture should enable a manufacturer to offer a superior dimmable product to consumers for a lower retail cost and establish a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

For the past several months, PureSpectrum has been engaged in ongoing negotiations with multiple lighting manufacturers to put the technology in commercially available products. Following LightFair International, Kullman said non-disclosure and internal testing agreements necessary to begin manufacturing compatibility testing on PureSpectrum's technology were distributed to five additional leading manufacturers of CFL and linear fluorescent bulbs.

"Our independent testing and proprietary testing done by manufacturers has clearly indicated that this technology enables 100 percent regressive dimming for both CFL bulbs and linear fluorescent bulbs without any loss of performance in other areas," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "We have received nothing but positive feedback on the technology, and now it is simply a matter of finding the most appropriate licensing partners."

PureSpectrum's commitment to scientific integrity and verification through independent testing has allowed the company to garner interest from major lighting manufacturers. The company has conducted multiple rounds of independent testing on its technology and has encouraged lighting manufacturers to perform their own testing to confirm performance measurements and determine compatibility with existing product lines.
