Applied DNA Sciences expands SigNature® T DNA technology

Applied DNA Sciences (Applied DNA), Inc, a provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting, authentication, genotyping and anti-theft technologies, announced that it is expanding the use of its proprietary, SigNature® T DNA technology to cotton gins in Arkansas, California and Texas, with the launch of its fully automated DNA Transfer Systems. The new systems are equipped with real-time monitoring, and security and data capture, ensuring efficient and consistent DNA tagging of cotton fibers during ginning.

“We worked in collaboration with our cotton team, including the growers, ginners, and our merchant, Louis Dreyfus, to prepare and install our technology for both pima and upland cotton for this month’s harvest,” said Brian Viscount, Director – PD at Applied DNA Sciences. “The fully automated systems will be used in tandem with our real-time, SigNify® On-Site DNA verification systems, establishing authenticity and integrity at the beginning of the cotton supply chain.”

The new DNA Transfer Systems are designed to handle higher volumes of SigNature T tagging, including the previously announced increase of 50 million pounds of HomeGrown™ Lonestar and 10 mn pounds of HomeGrown Acala upland cottons. Gins trained and certified in SigNature T will apply the technology for the October harvest. For traceability from “source to shelf,” upland cotton can be used to produce home textiles such as towels and rugs. “We provide certainty to a very complex textile supply chain,” said Dr. James Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences. “We offer an end-to-end platform that enables users to stay one step ahead. In just one DNA tagging campaign, entire companies and countries can be certain that their reputations for quality, integrity, and sustainability are preserved, from the source all the way to the shelf.”

Track-and-trace continues through the supply chain, with fiber, yarn and fabric sample genotyping, and SigNature T DNA tagging and authentication managed through the digitalDNA® textiles portal. A forensic and data-driven approach for assuring quality and label compliance will continue to reduce reliance on paper documentation, which often is not sufficient to prove origin or to substantiate label claims. In the end, retailers, manufacturers and consumers will now know that the final product comes from the same cotton that left the gin at the beginning of the supply chain.

The company makes life real and safe by providing botanical-DNA based security and authentication solutions and services that can help protect products, brands, entire supply chains, and intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion. The patented DNA-based solutions can be used to identify, tag, track, and trace products, to help assure authenticity, traceability and quality of products. SigNature® DNA describes the platform ingredient that is at the heart of a family of uncopyable, security and authentication solutions such as SigNature® T and fiberTyping®, targeted toward textiles and apparel, DNAnet®, for anti-theft and loss prevention, and digitalDNA®, providing powerful track and trace. All provide a forensic chain of evidence, and can be used to prosecute perpetrators.
