PRESS RELEASE

Labsphere Adds Goniophotometers to Illumination Test Range

Partnership with UL Verification Services completes product range

North Sutton, New Hampshire (October 12, 2011) – Labsphere, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of goniophotometers to its light measurement product line. As part of a cooperative agreement with UL Verification Services Inc. of Northbrook IL, Labsphere will now promote and sell high quality Type C goniophotometers, a product which completes the company’s full range of IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) LM-79 test and measurement solutions.

In conjunction with this agreement, UL now will be promoting and selling Labsphere integrating spheres systems with proprietary Spectraflect® 99% diffuse reflectance coating. The combination of Labsphere’s sphere-based systems and UL’s goniophotometers gives customers worldwide the ability to equip their labs with one-stop shopping for best-in-class products.

“The addition of the UL high-end goniophotometers to our extensive product line allows us to further extend our total solutions mission and better service companies in the rapidly expanding Solid State Lighting markets”, said Greg McKee, Vice President of Engineering at Labsphere. “The lighting industry is undergoing a technology transformation toward LED-based energy efficient lighting products, and once again, Labsphere proves it is a leading provider of world class light measurement systems and standards to help our customers develop their innovative lighting products to meet global lighting test specifications.”

UL Verification Services Inc. acquired Lighting Sciences Inc. (LSI) of Scottsdale, Arizona in March 2011. The UL LSI Moving Mirror Goniophotometer Series 6400T was awarded the Illuminating Engineering Society Progress Report honor for 2010, as a “unique and significant advancement to the art and science of lighting.” (IESNA, 2010) This award-winning test equipment will now form the cornerstone of the complete LM-79 laboratory solution from Labsphere and UL.

“UL is pleased to announce the collaboration with Labsphere,” said Todd Straka, Business Development Director for UL, “We believe we can now provide our lighting manufacturing customers with the highest quality in-house photometric test laboratories available. This relationship couples the speed and accuracy of the UL Lighting Sciences goniophotometers with high-quality Labsphere integrating spheres, spectral management accessories, and highly advanced software for a turn-key photometric testing solution.”

UL (www.ul.com) is a global independent safety science company offering expertise across five key strategic businesses: Product Safety, Environment, Life & Health, University and Verification Services. UL has tested and certified lighting products in the global marketplace for over one hundred years. UL provides testing and certification services to industry standards including UL, ANSI, IEC, NEMA, FCC, and IESNA. Additionally, UL is a leading provider of photometric performance testing and test equipment in support of well-known lighting programs such as ENERGY STAR®, Lighting Facts, and Design Lights Consortium.
