Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., a provider of DNA-based security and product authentication solutions, announces that it has signed an agreement with Wakefield Inspection Services (“WIS”) for a collaboration to provide global supply chain, traceability and security-driven solutions to customers using SigNature T DNA marking and DNA authentication services. 
 
Operating in over 60 countries around the world, WIS is a trusted industry leader in the textile business for providing independent quality assessments and inspections with incomparable standards for accurate, objective and quality verification and reporting services.
 
Applied DNA Sciences’ SigNature T DNA platform ensures traceability of textile raw materials from point of origin to finished product. The identity of textiles is thus assured throughout the supply chain. Combined with the services of WIS, textile customers will gain worldwide access to the consultation, training, documentation, and enhanced inspection services required to ensure a seamless implementation of the program.
 
The products and services offered by both companies will give textile customers confidence that raw materials are inspected, marked, tested and forensically authenticated from the point of origin.
 
“With Applied DNA Sciences, we will map out the most cost-effective processes and procedures for ensuring that the SigNature T DNA marker in fiber, yarn or fabrics can be securely obtained and authenticated throughout virtually any textile supply and logistic chain. Our international reputation in controlling textile quality and supply makes our collaboration with ADNAS a good fit,” said Greg Wakefield, Director, WIS.
 
The agreement establishes a cost-effective, end-to-end implementation solution that ensures traceability of SigNature T DNA marked fiber, yarn or fabric from the field to the forensic lab. It begins with proven, scalable methods that allow ginners and wool scourers to incorporate and authenticate the SigNature T DNA marker with little impact to existing processes at the raw fiber stage of cotton and wool production. 
 
In addition, Applied DNA Sciences’ patented fiberTyping testing for cotton, will ensure the identity of the feedstock. As part of this collaboration, Applied DNA Sciences and WIS will target key customers and markets for joint commercial development, with a focus on value-added, cost effective solutions.
 
“Consumers will continue to buy products made from trusted sources. They are acutely aware when a product does not look or feel good after one or two washings, and they are increasingly aware of the damage from “leaky” supply chains. Consumers ultimately decide if they buy from the same retail outlet, or not. It’s all about quality, integrity and trust. WIS is among the best channels for our approach to the industry,” stated Dr. James A. Hayward, President and CEO, Applied DNA Sciences.
