ADNAS tags 100 mn pounds of cotton with SigNature T DNA

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., an American provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping and product authentication solutions, has shipped SigNature T DNA to tag 100 million pounds of cotton in total during FY 2015 (ending 30 September 2015), it said in a press release. Cotton gins are expected to run in the US through approximately February 2016 and APDN's selling efforts are ongoing.

In June 2015, the New York-based company announced the sale of DNA to tag over 20 million pounds of cotton. That number has soared to a total of 100 million pounds over the summer, and includes DNA-tagging cotton under both of its brands, “PimaCott,” for DNA-tagged Pima cotton, and “HomeGrown” for DNA-tagged American Upland cotton. To keep up with demand, APDN is installing its proprietary SigNature T DNA-transfer systems at multiple cotton gins throughout the US.

“The increase in use of our SigNature T DNA taggant from an initial 5 million pounds last growing season to 100 million pounds this year demonstrates the scalability and growing customer adoption of our DNA technology as we deliver on commercial-scale deployment requirements,” said Dr. James Hayward, CEO of Applied DNA Sciences. “We are seeing increasing demand for SigNature T DNA tagging for cotton being driven by national retailers and their partners who seek to ensure the purity of their supply chains, compliance with governmental labeling regulations and higher-quality products for the American consumer. We anticipate that our success in cotton will be replicated in other synthetic and natural textiles applications and across other business verticals as we continue to mature other revenue opportunities.”

Using the company's patented SigNature T DNA technology, cotton fibers can be tagged at source, verified as “American grown” and then traced through every step of the supply chain. The company's patented genotyping platform, known as “fibreTyping”, is used before tagging with SigNature T botanical DNA. FibreTyping is employed to identify the genus and species of the fibres before they are tagged with SigNature T DNA. FibreTyping cannot be used to track a specific cotton batch through the supply chain, a function which can only be accomplished by SigNature T, the press release said. (SH)
