Security Stocks; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Announces First License of Spectral Pattern Matching Technology; Environmental Applications Subject of License with Javelin LLC

Seattle, WA - January 5, 2011 (Investorideas.com Defense Newswire) - Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), a pioneer provider of industry-leading color based identification and diagnostic solutions, is pleased to announce it has entered into a license agreement with Seattle-based Javelin LLC ("Javelin") for development of environmental diagnostic applications of its Spectral Pattern Matching ("SPM") technology.
Visualant's primary focus with its SPM technology and its TransTech Systems, Inc. subsidiary is the multi-billion dollar security and authentication marketplace. SPM technology has broad applicability to a number of fields of use outside the security and authentication marketplace including medical, agricultural and environmental diagnostics. Today's announcement is the first license agreement for the SPM technology. It marks a significant milestone in the Company's growth. The first public demonstration of the Company's SPM technology occurred in October of 2010. This license is what the Company hopes will be the first of many such agreements. The license, which is exclusive for environmental applications, provides for certain minimum payments and market-rate royalties.
The Visualant SPM technology, with its ability to map color at the photon level both within the humanly visible spectrum as well as in the near infra-red and near ultra-violet, can be used as a diagnostic tool for a host of environmental applications. These include determining the presence of foreign substances such as oil in water and determining water quality among many others.
Javelin LLC Co-founder, Peter Purdy, stated, "I have worked in the optical solutions field for over twenty years. With the Visualant SPM technology we can differentiate our product for testing at the molecular level due to its very low cost. It is a transformative technology with a broad array of potential applications." Matthew Creedican, Javelin Co-founder, agrees and mentioned, "We have been aggressive in pursuing Visualant's technologies for our testing applications and the extreme competitive advantage SPM brings in size, cost and durability. We are excited about a number of the current environmental applications we currently are working with as well as future iterations of the technology."
About the Javelin license agreement Visualant CEO Ron Erickson said, "While we remain focused on our work in the security and authentication marketplace, we have been resolute in our belief the Visualant SPM technology has extensive applications in many fields of use. We look forward to working with Javelin to solve some big problems in environment diagnostics. Over time, we expect to secure additional licensing opportunities for the SPM technology in medical, agricultural diagnostics and in other fields of use."
