Applied DNA Sciences, a leader in Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based DNA manufacturing, has announced successful DNA tagging of leather at one of world’s largest tanneries in Asia. The work follows a successful research project undertaken within UK that demonstrated Signature DNA could be used to trace hide of an animal from a farm to product in a store.

Traceability is essential when supporting claims of sustainability or the humane treatment of the animals. Further work in commercial tanneries by the Applied DNA UK team took place following the research project in other tanneries to identify the most practical ways to use Signature DNA technology in the leather supply chain. The work recently carried out in Asia was focused on tagging both suede and numerous polyurethane leather finishes in a variety of different colours.

“The results are validation of previous work we carried out and we now look forward to the opportunity to apply our technology for the leather industry to help provide much needed traceability for the various stakeholders,” said Dr. James Hayward, president and CEO, Applied DNA. “We are pleased by the interest shown across the leather industry in offering to leather supply chains.”

On November 13, 2019 at Tapestry headquarters in New York City, MeiLin Wan, vice president for textiles at Applied DNA, will be speaking about the latest developments in DNA traceability at the ‘Leather Compliance and Sustainability’ conference hosted by Eurofins/ BLC. The company feels that effective traceability of materials up the supply chain is the best way to manage sustainability risk and mitigate against potential environmental and social challenges.

On Thursday, December 5, 2019, Tony Benson, managing director of EMEA for Applied DNA, will also present a keynote at the ‘SATRA Sustainable Footwear Forum’ in Wyndham Way, UK.

Applied DNA has developed its CertainT system for marking leather through the leather value chain by using a DNA tag. This molecular-based technology can help protect leather products, brands, entire supply chains, and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion. 

Applied DNA is a provider of molecular technologies that enable supply chain security, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping and isolation of circulating tumour cells and the development of pre-clinical nucleic acid-based therapeutic drug candidates.

Applied DNA makes life real and safe by providing innovative, molecular-based technology solutions and services that can help protect products, brands, entire supply chains, and intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion.
