Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. has signed a new CertainT trademark license agreement with Palmetto Synthetics, a leader in the production of high quality, specialty synthetic fibre. Applied DNA is a provider of molecular technologies that enable supply chain security, anti-counterfeiting, and product genotyping for diagnostics and therapeutics.

Palmetto’s mission is to be the leading global innovator and provider of specialty synthetic fibre while fostering a culture of integrity, dignity and respect for their team members, business partner, community and environment. The newly signed CertainT trademark licensing agreement enables Palmetto to reach their goals of bringing transparency to their own manufacturing processes, and also to provide their customers with traceability and trust in the original tagged synthetic fibre.

Under the CertainT platform, customers are provided with secure, forensic guidelines for monitoring the flow of product through the manufacturing process via molecular tagging, testing and tracking. Routine inspection and authentication is transparent and certified throughout the process via an integrated database and portal. CertainT also helps customers with meeting their sustainability goals by 2020. Products that use recycled, renewable or re-usable materials that have an eco-conscious composition can benefit from molecular tagging.

David Poston, president of Palmetto Synthetics said, “To continue to be an industry leader, one must embrace new technology in paving the way to commit to customer excellence through the promotion of state of the art technology. As indicated in the past, we have our eye on the future and we are excited about CertainT’s platform and look forward to total implementation.”

James A. Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences said, “The CertainT system physically traces the raw material, ingredient, component and product, so you can claim that you are performing full traceability from source to shelf. That’s the difference between most standards that certify products that use a paper trail, or a mass-balance approach, where certified raw materials, such as recycled PET can be easily mixed with non-certified ones. CertainT can help assure product integrity and traceability by ensuring the product itself.” (GK)
