APDN adds clients for Signature T DNA system

Applied DNA Sciences (APDN) has expanded its Signature T DNA system for cotton supply chain security and traceability with new manufacturers of Pimacott and Homegrown consumer goods.

According to an APDN press release, these new manufacturers are already working with DNA-marked cotton produced in the 2015 ginning season.

“This unique, technology-enabled approach provides for proof of origin for the cotton used for the final goods, while preserving the purity from the source all the way to the consumer,” it said.

“With the expansion of the Signature T DNA footprint, APDN continues to leverage its global team of technical and business associates and the recruitment of world-class industry partners,” the company noted.

"We are very pleased to have on-boarded six new global manufacturers from areas that include India, China, and Turkey,” MeiLin Wan, VP Textiles at APDN said.

“The supply chain custody protocols and procedures, created by APDN, have been implemented with the Pimacott- and Homegrown-trained teams, consistent with ISO 9001 quality management systems,” she added.

“These new manufacturers become part of the Signature T DNA system that includes secure storage, maintenance, monitoring, inspection, sampling and testing of all DNA-tagged fibre, yarn, fabric and finished goods," Wan stated.

"The most compelling reason to use Signature T is that it automatically gives you source traceability or identity traceability like US-grown, organically grown, or sustainably grown,” CEO Dr. James Hayward said.

"DNA combined with our IT and control systems, provides end-to-end traceability and tells you where your product comes from, as well as where it does not come from,” he too added.

“With the integrated systems in place, each party in the supply chain can rely upon and audit prior parties in the supply chain to uphold the meaning of the Signature T DNA," Dr Hayward informed. (AR)
