Applied DNA Sciences (APDN) said the US Patent and Trademark Office has granted US Patent No. 9,266,370, titled, 'DNA Marking of Previously Undistinguished Items for Traceability' to APDN.

This is the first patent to be issued from a new generation of patent applications that do not begin to expire before October of 2032, providing Applied DNA with a very strong, broad based patent portfolio for years to come.

“The intellectual property (IP) protected by this patent covers the use of the company's proprietary DNA to mark, authenticate and track items with DNA in the coating or in the material itself,” an APDN press release stated.

“It is applicable in a broad range of markets, including, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, industrial materials, and electronics,” the company added.

This technology was demonstrated at the Medical Japan Expo 2016 last week and also further secures the company's proprietary use of DNA printing and helps to further differentiate Applied DNA in the marketplace.

Dr. Benjamin Liang, chief scientific officer, APDN said, "This patent demonstrates our continuous effort to expand our DNA marking and traceability capability into various printing or marking modalities.”

“The issuance of this patent will provide a strong support for our efforts in building Signature DNA marking business in both pharmaceutical and home asset markings," he too added.

According to APDN, this patent strengthens the company's position by protecting and expanding the proprietary methodologies used to mark items with DNA.

“This patent describes methods of using DNA in an activated form to mark goods, together with optical or chemical markers for authentication or tracking purposes,” it informed.

Dr. James Hayward, CEO of APDN too said, "Our IP estate is among our most valuable assets, including now more than 35 issued patents and more than 75 pending.”

“Patents protect the products and methodologies we have spent millions of dollars to perfect and so, we intend to enforce our patent rights in every business category," Hayward observed.

APDN provides botanical-DNA based security and authentication solutions that can help protect products, brands, entire supply chains, and intellectual property from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion.

Its patented DNA-based solutions can be used to identify, tag, track, and trace products, to help assure authenticity, traceability and quality of products.

Signature DNA describes the platform ingredient that is at the heart of a family of uncopyable, security and authentication solutions such as Signature T and Fibertyping, targeted toward textiles and apparel. (AR)
