Security Stocks; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Releases New TransCam™ Identification Card Photo Capture Solutions for Government and Commercial Use

SEATTLE - April 26, 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 released a new line of TransCam™ photo identification solutions tailored to the particular needs of the identification and security market.
The ID security and access control industries have unique requirements for image capture systems. Cameras must be high-quality and low-cost, produce quality images in all lighting conditions, and able to interface with specialized badge design software for instant creation and issuance of identification credentials. These systems must also be designed for portable use in multiple locations such as a school district, and for permanent installation at a central location, such as a corporate security office. TransTech Systems has recognized these needs and designed two unique camera kits under the TransCam™ brand name. These two unique camera kits are available for immediate distribution.
The TransCam WDM camera kit is designed for portability and includes both a top-of-the-line 8 megapixel high-definition compact camera for capturing crisp and vibrant images of the subject, and TWAIN-driver software solution. The camera can be controlled directly from the user's computer to capture the perfect photo, and the integrated face-finder combined with auto-crop ensures that ID badges are created quickly and professionally.
The TransCam ACK camera kit is designed for high-volume badge issuance. This kit combines a versatile camera from a leading camera manufacturer with a unique TWAIN-driver software solution that provides the user direct control of camera features such as zoom and focus without leaving the workstation to make adjustments.
The TransCam™ camera kits are compatible with the most popular ID Badging solutions in the industry. Deluxe versions of the TransCam kits are also available, offering a high-quality blue/gray reversible backdrop and full-size tripod for use with the camera's integrated tripod mount.

Biotech/Biodefense Stock News; Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Clarifies News Report

SAN DIEGO - April 21, 2011 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) disclosed that it was the subject of an ABC affiliate station news story that included discussion of the company's proposed strategy to reduce the occurrence of sepsis in wounded military personnel. As previously disclosed, the company submitted a contract response on April 1, 2011 to a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) entitled Dialysis Like Therapeutics (DLT). In the submission, company proposed multiple capabilities including the development of dialysis-like therapy that would address the objectives of the DLT program. The company wishes to clarify that there is no assurance it will be invited to participate in the DLT program and that battlefield deployment of such a device is not feasible in the near future as suggested in the ABC affiliate news story. However, the company does believe that successful clinical outcomes in treating Hepatitis-C (HCV) infected patients with its Hemopurifier� technology does offer the potential for an early commercialization pathway of its Hemopurifier� in India. The company appreciates the coverage by the ABC news affiliate which unfortunately confused the potential commercialization timeline of our Hemopurifier� with the device proposed to be developed in our DLT response.
About Aethlon Medical
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.
Human studies have documented the ability of our Hemopurifier® to safely reduce viral load in both Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected patients without the administration of antiviral drugs. However, our initial clinical and commercialization focus is to establish our Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance the benefit of both infectious disease and cancer treatment regimens. In this regard, we plan to commercialize our Hemopurifier® in India as we advance our clinical strategies in the United States and the European Union. In vitro studies conducted by government and non-government research institutes have also verified that our Hemopurifier® has broad-spectrum capabilities against bioterror and emerging pandemic threats. These studies have confirmed the capture of Dengue Hemorrhagic Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Virus, Lassa Hemorrhagic Virus, West Nile Virus, H5N1 Avian Influenza Virus, 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, the reconstructed Spanish Flu of 1918 Virus, and Monkeypox Virus, which serves as a model for human Smallpox infection.
As a therapeutic device, the Hemopurifier® provides us with a pipeline into four significant market opportunities:
  1. Cancer: A treatment candidate to improve patient responsiveness to established cancer therapies by removing immunosuppressive exosomes from circulation.
  2. Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV): As an adjunct therapy to accelerate viral load reduction at the outset of standard of care drug regimens.
  3. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Provides a potential therapeutic option for HIV-infected individuals to manage disease progression once they become resistant to antiviral drug regimens.
  4. Bioterror and Pandemic Threats: Represents the most advanced broad-spectrum strategy to address untreatable bioterror and emerging pandemic threats.
The Hemopurifier® is an expansive multi-patented platform technology whose mechanism of action can be leveraged to provide therapeutic, diagnostic, and biomarker discovery solutions. As a therapeutic, the Hemopurifier® is a single-use disposable cartridge designed for implementation within the established infrastructure of dialysis machines and other blood circulatory pumps already located in hospitals and clinics worldwide.
In design, our Hemopurifier® is a selective filtration device containing affinity agents that tightly bind to high-mannose structures unique to the surface of exosomes produced by cancer and glycoproteins residing on the envelope of viruses. These agents are immobilized around approximately 2800 porous hollow fibers that run the interior length of our device. The resulting design provides us the novel ability to separate both exosome and viral targets away from blood cells so they can then be selectively and permanently removed from the circulatory system. In application, blood circulation is established into the Hemopurifier® via a catheter or other blood access device. Once blood flow has been established, treatment benefit is immediate as the entire circulatory system can pass through the Hemopurifier® in as little as 15 minutes.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) is focused on the development of exosome-targeted products and services that improve cancer diagnosis, provide post-treatment cancer surveillance, and aid in the discovery of biomarkers that allow doctors to optimize patient therapy. Additional information regarding Aethlon Medical and Exosome Sciences can be accessed online at www.aethlonmedical.com.

Such potential risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, the company's ability to commercialize its Hemopurifier® in India, capability of the Hemopurifier® to reduce viral loads and other disease conditions or to identify or treat disease conditions such as cancer or Hepatitis-C, including the ability to capture exosomes and the impact that potential ability may have on disease conditions, the Company's ability to raise capital when needed, the Company's ability to complete the development of its planned products, the ability of the Company to obtain FDA and other regulatory approvals permitting the sale of its products, the Company's ability to manufacture its products either internally or through outside companies and provide its services, the impact of government regulations, patent protection on the Company's proprietary technology, product liability exposure, uncertainty of market acceptance, competition, technological change, and other risk factors. In such instances, actual results could differ materially as a result of a variety of factors, including the risks associated with the effect of changing economic conditions and other risk factors detailed in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Security Stocks; TransTech Systems, a Subsidiary of Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL), Unveils Private Labeling of Identification Badge Printer Bundles and Supply Kits

SEATTLE - April 19, 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 the launch of private label badge printer bundles and supply kits in their product line.
The new printer bundles include a badge printer and the necessary supplies to instantly print plastic cards in an all-in-one solution. Dealer-customized labels, packaging graphics, and box inserts are included with the bundles to enhance both post-sale service and simplify the reordering process for the end-user. As more shipments go direct to the end users for cost saving reasons, the identity of the local reseller is being lost. Customization of the packaging for the reseller creates a personalized and end user direct shippable solution. Direct shipping eliminates additional freight and handling costs, thus increasing dealers� overall margins. At the same time, the customized packaging maintains the reseller identity with the end user and preserves the recurring revenue for the reseller.
New printer supply kits include necessary printer ribbons, PVC cards, and cleaning components to print approximately 500 cards, varying by printer model. The kits are available for the industry�s most popular models of badge printers including HID�, Ultra Electronics�, and Evolis�. Dealer-customized packaging graphics and box inserts are also available, adding further value to the easy-to-order kits.

The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of new and innovative anti-terrorism products and services by providing liability protections. https://www.safetyact.gov/
The following technologies have been granted "Designation" pursuant to 6 U.S.C. § 441-444 (the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002, or "SAFETY Act") and 6 C.F.R. Part 25 (Regulations to Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies):
Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. April 8, 2011 - Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc., a New Jersey corporation provides WhisprWave® Small Craft Intrusion Barrier™ (the "Technology”), a modular, rapidly deployable floating security barrier system designed to enhance maritime security by deterring, delaying, or impeding small boats traveling at high speed from approaching protected targets. Anchoring of the Technology is customized for each installation and involves use of a commercially available marine-grade anchoring system, based on need.

Company Snapshot: Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc
http://www.whisprwave.com
Wave Dispersion Technologies, Inc. reports the WhisprWave Small Craft Intrusion Barrier (SCIB) and the WhisprWave Vessel Exclusion Barrier (VEB) products are now designated as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies (QATT). Wave Dispersion Technologies, the industry's premier provider of boat barriers and floating security barriers, has earned the prestigious United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) SAFETY Act Designation.
The Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002 (SAFETY Act) provides important legal liability protections for providers of QATT, and for customers who use them. The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage providers to develop and deploy new and innovative anti-terrorism products and services by providing risk mitigation and liability protections. Congress has stated that the purpose of the SAFETY Act is to "ensure that the threat of liability does not deter potential manufacturers or sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing and commercializing technologies that could save lives."
WhisprWave Boat barriers provide a strong deterrent against the threat of a small boat being used to deliver a Water Borne Improvised Explosive Device (WBIED) against another vessel, maritime critical infrastructure, or other key resources. This specific scenario was detailed as a real and significant threat in the Department of Homeland Security's Small Vessel Security Strategy published in 2008 and updated in 2010.
"We feel that WDT's WhisprWave boat barriers SAFETY Act designation will help us to better support DHS's overall mission, mitigate the small boat threat, provide growth opportunities for our small business and lead to job creation,” said Dennis G. Smith, Founder and CEO of WDT.
To qualify for the SAFETY Act Designation, WDT submitted a formal application to the DHS that underwent a technical and economic evaluation. Technologies eligible for SAFETY Act status include products, equipment, services, devices and information technologies. These must be intended to limit the harm that might result from acts of terrorism and to detect, identify, prevent or deter such acts.
"Very few companies have achieved this type of approval from DHS, and the level of scrutiny involved is extraordinary. This definitely represents a vote of confidence in the technology,” said Dana Rozycki of Rozycki Associates, LLC, a consulting firm that assisted with the application process.

Recent News: Aethlon Medical (OTCBB: AEMD) Discloses Interview on Therapeutic Strategies to Address Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV
http://www.investorideas.com/CO/AEMD/news/2011/04151.asp
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.
Human studies have documented the ability of our Hemopurifier® to safely reduce viral load in both Hepatitis-C virus (HCV) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected patients without the administration of antiviral drugs. However, our initial clinical and commercialization focus is to establish our Hemopurifier® as an adjunct therapy to enhance the benefit of both infectious disease and cancer treatment regimens. In this regard, we plan to commercialize our Hemopurifier® in India as we advance our clinical strategies in the United States and the European Union. In vitro studies conducted by government and non-government research institutes have also verified that our Hemopurifier® has broad-spectrum capabilities against bioterror and emerging pandemic threats. These studies have confirmed the capture of Dengue Hemorrhagic Virus, Ebola Hemorrhagic Virus, Lassa Hemorrhagic Virus, West Nile Virus, H5N1 Avian Influenza Virus, 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, the reconstructed Spanish Flu of 1918 Virus, and Monkeypox Virus, which serves as a model for human Smallpox infection.
As a therapeutic device, the Hemopurifier® provides us with a pipeline into four significant market opportunities:
1.Cancer: A treatment candidate to improve patient responsiveness to established cancer therapies by removing immunosuppressive exosomes from circulation.
2.Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV): As an adjunct therapy to accelerate viral load reduction at the outset of standard of care drug regimens.
3.Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV): Provides a potential therapeutic option for HIV-infected individuals to manage disease progression once they become resistant to antiviral drug regimens.
4.Bioterror and Pandemic Threats: Represents the most advanced broad-spectrum strategy to address untreatable bioterror and emerging pandemic threats.
The Hemopurifier® is an expansive multi-patented platform technology whose mechanism of action can be leveraged to provide therapeutic, diagnostic, and biomarker discovery solutions. As a therapeutic, the Hemopurifier® is a single-use disposable cartridge designed for implementation within the established infrastructure of dialysis machines and other blood circulatory pumps already located in hospitals and clinics worldwide.
In design, our Hemopurifier® is a selective filtration device containing affinity agents that tightly bind to high-mannose structures unique to the surface of exosomes produced by cancer and glycoproteins residing on the envelope of viruses. These agents are immobilized around approximately 2800 porous hollow fibers that run the interior length of our device. The resulting design provides us the novel ability to separate both exosome and viral targets away from blood cells so they can then be selectively and permanently removed from the circulatory system. In application, blood circulation is established into the Hemopurifier® via a catheter or other blood access device. Once blood flow has been established, treatment benefit is immediate as the entire circulatory system can pass through the Hemopurifier® in as little as 15 minutes.
Our wholly owned subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) is focused on the development of exosome-targeted products and services that improve cancer diagnosis, provide post-treatment cancer surveillance, and aid in the discovery of biomarkers that allow doctors to optimize patient therapy. Additional information regarding Aethlon Medical and Exosome Sciences can be accessed online at www.aethlonmedical.com.

Such potential risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, the company's ability to commercialize its Hemopurifier® in India, capability of the Hemopurifier® to reduce viral loads and other disease conditions or to identify or treat disease conditions such as cancer or Hepatitis-C, including the ability to capture exosomes and the impact that potential ability may have on disease conditions, the Company's ability to raise capital when needed, the Company's ability to complete the development of its planned products, the ability of the Company to obtain FDA and other regulatory approvals permitting the sale of its products, the Company's ability to manufacture its products either internally or through outside companies and provide its services, the impact of government regulations, patent protection on the Company's proprietary technology, product liability exposure, uncertainty of market acceptance, competition, technological change, and other risk factors. In such instances, actual results could differ materially as a result of a variety of factors, including the risks associated with the effect of changing economic conditions and other risk factors detailed in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
