Biodefense Stocks /Homeland Defense Stock Alert; Dynasil Corporation (NASDAQ GM: DYSL) trading at $6.26, up 2.50 (66.49%)

Radiation Fears and Biological Warfare Threats Raise Investor Interest in Biodefense Stocks;
(OTCBB: AEMD), (NASDAQ GM: DYSL), (NYSE Amex: PIP), (NasdaqGM: SIGA )

Point Roberts, WA- March 23, 2011 - Investorideas.com, a leader in investor sector research
including Homeland Defense and Biodefense Stocks issues a trading alert on the sector as
Dynasil Corporation of America(NasdaqGM: DYSL ) becomes the top gainer on the NASDAQ on
patent news for its radiation monitoring device.

Dynasil Corporation (NASDAQ GM:DYSL), announced today that its research division, Radiation
Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), also of Watertown, was granted additional U.S. patent claims for
advances in a detector material capable of responding independently to both neutron and gamma
radiation. This advancement is of critical national importance because the most commonly
available technology for detecting neutrons in Homeland Security applications, specifically
neutron detectors based on gaseous Helium-3, is becoming impractical because of serious
limitations on the availability of this gas.



In a recent article on Daily Finance entitled “Inside Wall Street: Looking to the Bio-Defense
Sector as Nuclear Fears Mount”, notes - The sector attracted a lot of interest after 9/11 and a
number of companies emerged to develop protective biodefense drugs and products. But with the
waning of dark headlines about terrorist threats, investors have tended to put them on their low-
priority list.
That may be about to change

Biodefense Company Snapshot

Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD)
At Aethlon Medical, we create revolutionary devices to address infectious disease and cancer.
Our devices are designed to be novel platform solutions that fill therapeutic voids or aid in
disease diagnosis and monitoring.

Our Hemopurifier® is the first medical device to selectively target the removal of infectious
viruses and immunosuppressive proteins from the entire circulatory system. We recently
discovered that our Hemopurifier® captures tumor-secreted exosomes that suppress the immune
system of those afflicted with cancer. Prior to this discovery, a therapeutic strategy to directly
inhibit or reverse the immunosuppressive destruction caused by exosomes did not exist in
cancer care. By eliminating this mechanism, we believe our Hemopurifier® can fill an unmet
clinical need and provide the benefit of an immune-based therapy without adding drug toxicity or
interaction risks to established and emerging treatment strategies.

Security Stocks; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Subsidiary TransTech Systems Obtains Exclusive Department of Homeland Security Distribution Deal

SEATTLE - March 22, 2011 (Investorideas.com Defense Newswire) - Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), a pioneer provider of industry-leading color-based identification and diagnostic solutions, an emerging leader in security and authentication systems technology and distributor of a wide variety of security solutions through its wholly owned subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce that TransTech Systems has become the exclusive distributor to the US Federal Government of a new custom-developed proximity card programmer for use on their newly mandated identification cards.
This programmer will allow those agencies to program both 125 kHz and 13.56 MHz access control cards to match the current format in use at any particular facility, and will eliminate the expense for those agencies to have the cards individually programmed by the proximity chip manufacture prior to delivery. Agencies can now order standard card stock for all their facilities and not be required to purchase different formats for different locations as necessary prior to the development of this new device. As well, this offering will allow more flexibility in time and budget to the many agencies that are being forced to consider expensive upgrades to their existing access control systems in order to comply with the HSPD-12 presidential directive that all federal employees carry a specific type of access card, referred to as Personal Identity Verification ("PIV").
Jim Gingo, TransTech President stated, "This product will be supplied to the Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") on an exclusive basis. This order is indicative of our ongoing commitment to and support of the many DHS agencies with which we work with the ultimate goal of assisting them to save money and better work within the constraints of severely reduced funding."
Ron Erickson, Visualant CEO said, "TransTech has a respected reputation for excellence in the security and authentication marketplace. The work that Jim Gingo and his team perform for our nation’s government is first rate and helps provide the security that we demand for our country."

Ronald Erickson, CEO, of Visualant Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), Discusses the Power and Accuracy of its Patent Pending Sensor Technology

Published at (www.investorideas.com defense stocks blog ) Research defense and Homeland Security stocks with the largest global defense stocks directory online for investors at Investorideas.com and www.Homelanddefensestocks.com click here: http://www.investorideas.com/Companies/HomelandDefense/Stock_List.asp Defense and security companies - Become a showcase defense stock at www.investorideas.com and www.homelanddefensestocks.coMultiple Market Applications For Spectral Pattern Matching Technology Include Homeland
Security, Identity Theft, Environmental and Agricultural

Point Roberts, WA- March 22, 2011 – Investorideas.com, an investor research portal
specializing in sector research, including security stocks, presents a Q&A interview featuring Mr.
Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board of Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB:VSUL).

Visualant’s patent pending ‘Spectral Pattern Matching’ technology uses light to create a unique
signature for individual items and classes of items, including a recent environmental application to
identify oil in water.

Interview:

Q: Investorideas.com
Ron, according to your corporate description, your sensor technology offers the simplest, fastest
and most inexpensive means to document unique non-visible signatures from nearly any kind of
product or surface. What kind of results and feedback are you seeing with the technology as your
applications widen into new markets?

A: Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

As we continue our work in the laboratory we are discovering some rather startling results. For
example, this past week we were able to differentiate between ten brands of vodka. I don’t
expect that to be a business focus for us. It simply illustrates the power of the Spectral Pattern
Technology to detect the unique differences that exist between substances that appear identical
to the human eye.

Q: Investorideas.com
With some of the most recent applications in conjunction with your licensed partner, Javelin LLC,
you are detecting oil in water. To what level of accuracy and to what degree can your technology
detect the oil?

A: Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

In the laboratory test setting we have been able to detect miniscule amounts of oil or adulterates
in oil. The laboratory tests have provided evidence of an acceptable level of accuracy.

Q: Investorideas.com
From an accuracy and efficiency standpoint, who would you say your nearest competitors are in
the sensor market? And how do you compare?

A: Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

There are any number of competitors providing competitive products in the senor market. We
believe that we have a distinct competitive advantage because of our low cost model and the
flexibility and durability of our technology.

Q: Investorideas.com
How does your technology enhance and improve overall security by adding it to current
biometrics technology?

A: Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

The Visualant Spectral Pattern Technology adds an additional layer of authentication and
requires no added features such as an RFID chip, taggant, thread or hologram. We simply see
that color that is present.

Q: Investorideas.com
In terms of new applications, is there ongoing testing and R&D to develop new markets internally
at Visualant or do you work with partners and companies that license the technology to build this
out ?

A: Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

We do both. We are working on a Spectral Pattern Matching Development Kit which third parties
can use to develop their own applications. We are also working on some product ideas at
Visualant which we will bring to market ourselves and in conjunction with joint venture partners.

Q: Investorideas.com
In terms of potential new partners and markets, what industry sector are you seeing the most
interest and activity in? And why do you think that is?

A. Ronald Erickson, CEO, President and Chairman of the Board

Naturally, given the focus of our TransTech subsidiary on the security and authentication
marketplace we are seeing most of our activity in that sector. It is an extremely important part of
the market.

Biodefense Stocks; Aethlon Medical (OTCBB:AEMD) Discusses Device Opportunity To Treat Sepsis and Bioterror Threats

San Diego, CA, March 16, 2011 � Investorideas.com newswire; Biotech and biodefense stock news; Aethlon Medical Shareholder Letter Aethlon Medical, Inc., (OTCBB:AEMD) disclosed that its Chairman and CEO, James A. Joyce has issued the following letter to shareholders.
Website: aethlonmedical.com
To our Shareholders:
As we advance our Hepatitis-C (HCV) treatment studies in India, we have also been active in our efforts to benefit from new government policies aimed at protecting U.S. civilian and military populations from bioterror and pandemic threats. This policy shift redefines the primary strategic objective of related government agencies to be the identification and support of innovative broad-spectrum countermeasures, technologies, and platforms. This is a considerable shift from the government�s previous focus of attempting to align a single drug or vaccine countermeasure with each pathogen threat. We remain convinced that our Hemopurifier� is the most advanced broad-spectrum countermeasure, technology, or platform.
Earlier this year, we were honored to be invited by The Department of Health and Humans Services (HHS) to present our Hemopurifier� as a broad-spectrum platform technology to multi-agency health officials on January 12th at the Washington Convention Center. Since this presentation, our bioterror and pandemic threat initiative has led to follow-on meetings and presentations, including a formal presentation to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) on February 15th. While the pursuit of government grants and contracts is not our primary focus, it is difficult to ignore a growing pipeline of new and evolving opportunities to advance our science with non-dilutive capital resources.
On February 8th, we were pleased to learn that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) released a broad agency announcement (BAA) entitled: �Dialysis Like Therapeutics� (DLT). The goal of the DLT program is to develop a portable device that removes �dirty� blood from the body, separates harmful agents, and returns �clean� blood to the body in a manner similar to dialysis treatment of kidney failure. While the device could have an impact across multiple areas of medicine, the target application for this device is sepsis. The envisioned device will be capable of removing at least 90% of unknown pathogens, toxins, and activated cells from a patient in one day. As stated in the BAA, targets for removal include viral pathogens referenced to include Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Influenza Bio-agents, Smallpox, and viral hemorrhagic fevers. As we have proven capabilities within the scope of this BAA, we plan to respond with a full proposal by April 1st.
If you are not familiar with DARPA, their mission is to maintain the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent technological surprise from harming our national security by sponsoring revolutionary, high-payoff research bridging the gap between fundamental discoveries and their military use. Innovation sponsored by DARPA has resulted in groundbreaking discoveries and life changing advances such as the internet. DARPA envisions that the device developed under this BAA would save the lives of thousands of military patients each year.
If selected to participate in the DLT program, we would anticipate a multifaceted role that would involve teaming with other industry partners to advance our core Hemopurifier� as an innovative dialysis-like multi-use platform technology able to selectively target deleterious pathogens and toxins from the entire circulatory system. We would also seek expand the capabilities of our technology platform as the basis for a device targeting to reduce the presence of circulating factors that are precursors to sepsis. Our goal would be to reduce the occurrence of sepsis as post-sepsis treatment strategies to inhibit the inflammation process including the modulation of inflammatory cytokines have yet to be proven clinically beneficial. It is also possible that we could participate in the advancement of portable blood pump technology required under the BAA that would be deployed to treat wounded warfighters with extracorporeal device technologies including current and future iterations of our Hemopurifier� technology. Regardless of outcome, it is truly gratifying to witness therapeutic filtration being the focal point of a government contract opportunity. This is especially true when it comes from an agency as scientifically adept as DARPA. Once we complete our submission to DARPA, I will be back in touch with an update on other activities.
On behalf of our dedicated team at Aethlon Medical, I thank you for your continued support.
Very truly yours,
James A. Joyce
