Provider of DNA based supply chain, anti counterfeiting and anti theft technology; Applied DNA Sciences has signed a multi year agreement to provide its SigNature T DNA products and services to one of the largest US based retailers. While the main launch will take place later, early tagged products will be on the shelves of the retailer in this year.

Applied DNA's flagship SigNature T DNA platform is used for tagging cotton fibres at the source gin followed by forensic authentication of the textiles product itself from fibre to finished goods.

According to the company, SigNature T provides forensic proof of identity and purity using genotyping of species, and authentication of the SigNature T tag at every step for full end-to-end traceability.

“The retailer that selected SigNature T over and above any other system in the world did so because, they learned first-hand what it means to truly know your supply chain,” James Hayward, president at Applied DNA Sciences said. “Assuring quality in complex global supply chains is no small task and is too often under-estimated.”

“It requires commitment not only in time and resources, but a genuine belief that if you start with the purest fibre, your trusted network will keep it in your product to perform as nature intended," Hayward stated. (AR)
