visualant inc (VSUL) Key Developments

Visualant, Inc. Receives its Ninth Patent on its ChromaID Technology

Visualant, Inc. announced that it has received its ninth patent on its ChromaID technology. The newly issued patent describes a fluid sampling device that simplifies spectral analysis to produce an accurate but inexpensive chromatic fingerprint for fluid samples. The use of the ChromaID in identifying, authenticating and diagnosing fluids extends the reach of the technology through its unique use of an array of variable wavelength LED emitters and photodiode detectors to measure the scattering of electromagnetic energy from a fluid. The Visualant ChromaID technology as applied to identification, authentication and diagnostics of fluids allows for a wide variety of real-time real world applications. They include, but are not limited to: Determining if water is potable; Looking for the presence of water in aviation jet fuel; Checking for counterfeit fluids including olive oil, wine and spirits; Confirming that the correct fluid is flowing through the IV drip line; Identifying known contaminants in various fluids; and Determining if milk is spoiled.

Visualant, Inc. will Change its Ticker to VSULD from VSUL

Effective June 17, 2015, Visualant, Inc. will change its Pink Sheets LLC stock ticker symbol to VSULD from VSUL.

Visualant, Inc. Enters into Option Agreement with Benemilk Ltd

Visualant, Inc. announced that it has entered into a one-year option agreement with Benemilk Ltd. granting Benemilk the right to evaluate its ChromaID™ technology for quality assurance or quality control tests performed in connection with the production of dairy products and to exclusively license such technology on a worldwide basis. The specific application of Visualant’s ChromaID technology to milk is covered by a patent application filed by IV and licensed to Visualant pursuant to their strategic relationship. The global milk industry is growing rapidly with the increasing milk consumption in the developing world. Today, the global milk industry has a scale that is one-third the size of the global oil industry. The agreement executed between Visualant and Benemilk is the one of many expected opportunities created by Intellectual Ventures for their partners to work together. Benemilk is the developer of proprietary feeds and supplements for dairy cows, the use of which has been shown to markedly increase milk and milk solid production.
