Earlier this month, Visualant announced that it executed its first commercial licensing agreement with RatLab LLC of Seattle, WA. The fields of use include medical diagnostic, agricultural, environmental applications and germology.

Dr. Tom Furness, RatLab LLC founder and manager said, Our first focus will be medical diagnostics. The Visualant technology provides a means for non-invasive diagnostics of the human condition. We believe color, at the photon level, is nature's ultimate identifier.

The news is significant as it shows the company's technology can be used for much more than just homeland security, anti-counterfeiting, forgery/fraud prevention, and brand protection. We will be keeping close watch as Visualant identifies other ways to capitalize upon extensive business opportunities with its unique technology.
