DNA tagging technology solutions provider Applied DNA Sciences (APDN) has entered into partnership with synthetic fibre manufacturer Palmetto Synthetics and materials design company Techmer PM to expand into the artificial fibres industry used in athletic apparel and automotive textile.

The company will be launching its product Signature T DNA in synthetic fibres. Signature T DNA molecular tags were attached to Techmer PM polyester formulations and supplied to Palmetto, who used them to manufacture polyester fibre.

The initial stage tagged five million lbs of PET fibre. The process will be scaled up to many millions of lbs over the next year.

“We have been a change agent for cotton fibre market, by bringing certainty to a complex supply chain.  With our entry into synthetic fibres, Applied DNA Sciences is entering a market that is more than three-times larger than cotton and is basis of 60 per cent of the global textile industry,” Dr Hayward, president and CEO of APDN commented.

“In just one DNA tagging campaign, companies can safeguard against product recalls and liability, and elevate their business, based on high integrity, quality and sustainability to ensure the smallest possible environmental footprint,” he added.

Signature T DNA solution now tags natural and synthetic fibres at industrial scale, and maintains a secure chain of custody as the product moves from source (pellets in case of synthetics) to fibre to product to consumer. (MCJ)
