Applied DNA makes new DNA transfer systems for cotton tags

Applied DNA Sciences (Applied DNA), Inc., a provider of DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting, authentication, genotyping, and anti-theft technologies, has announced the expansion of the use of its proprietary SigNature T DNA technology to cotton gins in Arkansas, California, and Texas, with the launch of its fully automated DNA Transfer Systems.

The new systems are equipped with real-time monitoring, and security and data capture, ensuring efficient and consistent DNA tagging of cotton fibres during ginning.

The new DNA Transfer Systems are designed to handle higher volumes of SigNature T tagging, including the previously announced increase of 50 million pounds of HomeGrown Lonestar and 10 million pounds of HomeGrown Acala upland cottons. Gins trained and certified in SigNature T will apply the technology for the October harvest. For traceability from “source to shelf,” upland cotton can be used to produce home textiles such as towels and rugs.

Track-and-trace continues through the supply chain, with fibre, yarn, and fabric sample genotyping, and SigNature T DNA tagging and authentication managed through the digitalDNA textiles portal. A forensic and data-driven approach for assuring quality and label compliance will continue to reduce reliance on paper documentation, which often is not sufficient to prove origin or to substantiate label claims. In the end, retailers, manufacturers and consumers will now know that the final product comes from the same cotton that left the gin at the beginning of the supply chain.

Brian Viscount, director of product development at Applied DNA Sciences said, “We worked in collaboration with our cotton team, including the growers, ginners, and our merchant, Louis Dreyfus, to prepare and install our technology for both pima and upland cotton for this month's harvest. The fully automated systems will be used in tandem with our real-time, SigNify On-Site DNA verification systems, establishing authenticity and integrity at the beginning of the cotton supply chain.”

James Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences said, “We provide certainty to a very complex textile supply chain. We offer an end-to-end platform that enables users to stay one step ahead. In just one DNA tagging campaign, entire companies and countries can be certain that their reputations for quality, integrity, and sustainability are preserved, from the source all the way to the shelf.” (GK)
