About Know Labs, Inc.
Know Labs, Inc. (f/k/a Know Labs Incorporated) is a public company whose shares trade under the stock symbol “KNWN.” The company’s technology directs structured light or radio waves through a substance or material to capture a unique molecular signature. The Company refers to these signatures as ChromaID™ and Bio-RFID™. ChromaID and Bio-RFID are used to identify, detect, or diagnose substance markers or biomarkers that may be invisible to the human eye. ChromaID and Bio-RFID scanner modules can be integrated into a variety of mobile or bench-top form factors. This patented and patent pending, award-winning technology makes it possible to effectively conduct analyses that could only previously be performed by invasive and/or large and expensive lab-based tests.

Historically, the Company focused on the development of our proprietary ChromaID technology. Using light from low-cost LEDs (light emitting diodes) we map the color of substances, fluids and materials and with our proprietary processes we can authenticate, identify and diagnose based upon the color that is present. The color is both visible to us as humans but also outside of the humanly visible color spectrum in the near infra-red and near ultra-violet and beyond. Our ChromaID scanner sees what we like to call “Nature’s Color Fingerprint.” Everything in nature has a unique color identifier and with ChromaID we can see it, and identify, authenticate and diagnose based upon the color that is present. Our ChromaID scanner is capable of uniquely identifying and authenticating almost any substance or liquid using light to create, record and detect its unique color signature. We will continue to develop and enhance our ChromaID technology and extend its capacity. More recently, we have focused upon extensions and new inventions that are derived from and extend beyond our ChromaID technology. We call this technology Bio-RFID. The rapid advances made with our Bio-RFID technology in our laboratory have caused us to move quickly in to the commercialization phase of our Company as we work to create revenue generating products for the marketplace.
ChromaID and Bio-RFID: Foundational Platform Technologies
Our ChromaID and Bio-RFID technologies provide a platform upon which a myriad of applications can be developed. As platform technologies, they are analogous to a smartphone, upon which an enormous number of previously unforeseen applications have been developed. ChromaID and Bio-RFID technologies are “enabling” technologies that bring the science of electromagnetic energy to low-cost, real-world commercialization opportunities across multiple industries. The technologies are foundational and, as such, the basis upon which the Company believes a significant business can be built.
As with other foundational technologies, a single application may reach across multiple industries. The ChromaID technology can, for example effectively differentiate and identify different brands of clear vodkas that appear identical to the human eye. By extension, this same technology can identify pure water from water with contaminants present. It can provide real time detection of liquid medicines such as morphine that have been adulterated or compromised. It can detect if jet fuel has water contamination present. It could determine when it is time to change oil in a deep fat fryer. These are but a few of the potential applications of the ChromaID technology based upon extensions of its ability to identify different clear liquids.
Similarly, the Bio-RFID technology can non-invasively identity the presence and quantity of glucose in the human body. By extension, there may be other molecular structures which this same technology can identity in the human body which, over time, the Company will focus upon. They may include the monitoring of drug usage or the presence of illicit drugs. They may also involve identifying hormones and various markers of disease.
The cornerstone of a company with a foundational platform technology is its intellectual property. We have pursued an active intellectual property strategy and have been granted 12 patents. We currently have 20 patents pending. We possess all right, title and interest to the issued patents.
About Our Team
Chief Executive Officer
Phil Bosua is an internationally recognized inventor and innovator. His expertise in lighting lead him to found LIFX (www.lifx.com) where he created the world’s first commercial smart light bulb. The 2012 crowdsourcing launch of his smart light bulb raised $1.3 million in six days and attracted $12 million in funding from Sequoia Capital (www.sequoiacap.com). This groundbreaking invention earned him the prestigious Edison Gold Award (www.edisonawards.com) presented by Elon Musk to innovators who create products that have a positive impact on the world. Bosua also founded RAAI, Inc., where he continued his innovative creation of new uses of light. Bosua said, “The time I have spent in the Visualant lab working on advancing their technology has been some of the most scintillating moments of my career. Ron Erickson and Visualant have provided support to allow me and the lab team to explore new products and discover new technologies. I’m excited by the technology platform we are creating, knowing that it will benefit millions of people around the world and be equally as good for our shareholders.”
