ITL & Applied DNA to develop anti-counterfeit fabric label
23
Nov '16
The ITL Group, an international apparel label solutions company, and Applied DNA Sciences, a provider of DNA-based anti-theft technology and product authentication solutions, are set to join Applied DNA's revolutionary SigNature DNA forensic marking system with ITL's printed fabric care labels to support global apparel brands against product counterfeiters.

Applied DNA has demonstrated feasibility of SigNature DNA forensic authentication and Beacon optical screening technology integrated with ITL's wet ink solution for fabric care labels, creating a multi-layer anti-counterfeit solution. The technology is intended to be applied to printed fabric labels (PFL), either via the supply of a stand-alone PFL or through integration of their existing washcare labels. Further testing and development is required to validate through the product lifecycle prior to general market availability, with an interest by ITL to conduct further trials on their range of heat transfer labels. A solution is expected to launch in the near future.

Applied DNA designs and formulates the DNA with Beacon-encrypted fluorescence in ITL ink at their US Laboratories. The botanically-derived DNA delivers 100 per cent individuality, forming the basis of unquestionable evidence of authenticity for any brand seeking to bring a prosecution against a found counterfeiter of labels.

While the SigNature DNA authenticity tests can be verified forensically in the field or on site or in the Applied DNA laboratories, the integration of Beacon technology provides the means for brands to conduct their own 'rapid read' checks on suspected items in the field. (GK)
