Verisante Technology, Inc. Launches New Product at SPIE Photonics West 2014 in San Francisco, CA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Verisante Technology, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: VRS)(OTCQX: VRSEF) (the "Company" or "Verisante"), a leader in cancer detection technology, announced today that the Company is launching a new product at the SPIE Photonics West 2014 industry exhibit in San Francisco, California from February 4-6, 2014. Photonics West is the annual flagship event for the optics and photonics industry, with 20,000 attendees expected to attend.

The Company will be introducing and demonstrating the VRS™ Verisante Research System, a revolutionary rapid Raman spectroscopy system designed for the scientific research community. The Aura™ for skin care which uses the same platform technology used in VRS™ was the winner of the 2013 Prism Award in the Life Sciences and Biophotonics category at last year's Photonics West conference. VRS™ is the world's fastest Raman spectrometer, able to acquire Raman spectra in under one second. According to Transparency Market Research, the "global spectrometry market was worth USD 10.2 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach USD 15.2 billion in 2017". Interested parties are invited to view VRS™ at exhibit booth #5134 in the North Hall of the Moscone Center.

"Our technology platform allows us to sell very similar products into different sales channels. In addition to skin cancer, lung cancer, etc., we can sell into the global research and industrial markets without requiring the stringent regulatory approvals required for medical devices. Our probes and ultra fast integration time make our spectrometer a unique and valuable tool not just for cancer research, but for many other applications in research and industry," said Thomas Braun, CEO of Verisante.
