Visualant, Inc. to Launch ChromaID(TM) Scanner Evaluation Kit in 2013

SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Visualant, Inc.
(OTCBB:VSUL), a Seattle tech company, announced today its plans to launch a
ChromaID™ scanner evaluation kit in 2013. The decision came after Visualant's
executive leadership team returned from its inaugural trade show in Japan
where they successfully demonstrated working prototypes of its Cyclops 6
ChromaID™ hand-held scanner. Cyclops 6 is significant because it was built by
licensee and investor Sumitomo Precision Products with the intention of being
the first step in transferring the technology to market.

Cyclops 6 contains thirty four LED Emitters which paint structured light onto
a substance, through a liquid/gas, or off a surface, and then captures the
reflected light in a simple Photodiode. The result is a unique ChromaID™
profile which can be matched against existing databases to identify, detect,
or diagnosis markers invisible to the human eye.

"It was very gratifying to walk into this major trade show and to see our
technology on display among so many innovative and high quality products
demonstrated by the Japanese Instrumentation Manufacturing Association member
companies," said Visualant's CEO Ron Erickson. "This group (JIMA) totally
understands the path we are on from research to implementation of high volume
manufactured components and understands the potential of the technology. Our
team returned home full of excitement for our technology and our market
opportunity."

Visualant used the show as a way to identify requirements for a Development
Kit, which will allow customers and partners to evaluate the ChromaID™
technology for inclusion in their own products.

About Visualant, Inc.

Visualant is a public company whose shares trade under the stock symbol, VSUL.
The Visualant Spectral Pattern Matching™ technology directs structured light
onto a substance, through a liquid/gas, or off a surface, to capture a unique
ChromaID. When matched against existing databases, a ChromaID™ can be used to
identify, detect, or diagnosis markers invisible to the human eye. ChromaID™
scanner modules can be integrated into a variety of mobile or fixed-mount form
factors. The patented technology is disruptive, making it possible to
effectively conduct analyses in the field that could only previously be
performed by large and expensive lab–based tests.

Visualant entered into a one year Joint Development Agreement on May 31, 2012
with Sumitomo Precision Products Co., Ltd. ("SPP"), which focuses on the
commercialization of the SPM technology and a License Agreement providing SPP
with an exclusive license of the SPM technology in identified Asian
territories. For more information, visit: http://www.visualant.net.
