10mn lbs of Acala cotton to be marked with Signature T DNA

Provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting, genotyping and authentication technologies, Applied DNA Sciences said it has shipped an order for Signature T DNA.

This Signature T DNA will be used to mark 10 million pounds of Acala cotton, which is a type of Upland cotton, which produces the longest staple among the Upland varieties.

Additionally, the company also received orders for two new DNA transfer units that will support gin expansion into new regions and cotton varieties that will be delivered in its fiscal fourth quarter of 2016.

"Authenticating Acala cotton with the Signature T solution adds to our business momentum," said Dr. James Hayward, CEO of Applied DNA.

"This development comes at a very important time in the industry as retailers, product developers, and consumers are asking for more authenticity, especially with the sophistication of forensically-proven sourcing,” he added.

“In addition, with the recent decline of 50 per cent in Egyptian production and the controversies surrounding its quality, Acala cotton is an excellent source to replenish the supply,” Hayward stated. (AR)
