Testing Highlights Improvements for PureSpectrum CFL Ballast Technology

Compared to Leading Brand Names, PureSpectrum CFL Shines Brighter and Clearer

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - Results of recent independent testing clearly indicate that PureSpectrum, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSPM) has refined an electronic ballast technology that will be able to produce a superior Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL).

Photometric testing conducted at leading lighting testing facility Intertek reveals that PureSpectrum has made significant progress in the past 90 days toward perfecting its proprietary ballast topology. Since previous independent testing conducted in August, PureSpectrum was able to engineer measurable improvements in lumens per watt, correlated color temperature (CCT) and color rendering index (CRI).

In both testing sessions, an 11-watt CFL prototype constructed with a Sylvania lamp and powered by PureSpectrum's patented ballast technology was compared to comparable bulbs from major lighting manufacturers. In the most recent round of testing, the PureSpectrum prototype measured 25 percent higher than the earlier prototype for lumens per watt and 39 percent higher on the CCT scale. Furthermore, the CCT and CRI results for PureSpectrum's prototype was substantially greater than the CCT and CRI scores for CFL bulbs from the Home Depot Nvision private label as well as CFL bulbs made by Sylvania and Feit.

PureSpectrum owns a family of patents and patent applications for improved electronic ballast technology and circuitry designs for ballast driven lighting applications. In previous independent testing, PureSpectrum's proprietary ballast topology imbedded in CFL bulbs made by lighting manufacturing giants such as GE, Westinghouse and Sylvania produced sizable gains in both start time and run-up delay time.

"The progress we have made is gratifying because we have been able to make revisions and alterations within the performance of the technology without compromising the base science," said PureSpectrum president and CEO Lee Vanatta. "These test results represent the culmination of effective planning and innovative electrical engineering during the past year. We declared our direction, and we have not deviated from our stated mission of identifying technology solutions which will produce the best possible lighting applications. We have accomplished many of the objectives we set forth in terms of performance, and we are now closer to our ultimate goal of forming a licensing partnership with a manufacturer to put all of the benefits and features of PureSpectrum Technology on the marketplace."
