APDN SHIPS SIGNATURE T DNA TO TAG 100 MILLION LBS OF COTTON DURING FY 2015
Company Scaling to Meet Growing Demand At Multiple Cotton Gins Across U.S.
Applied DNA Sciences has shipped SigNature T DNA to tag 100 million pounds of cotton in total during FY 2015 (ending 30 September 2015).
Cotton gins are expected to run in the United States through approximately February 2016 and APDN's selling efforts are ongoing.
- -In June 2015, the company announced the sale of DNA to tag over 20 million pounds of cotton.
- -That number has soared to a total of 100 million pounds over the summer, and includes DNA-tagging cotton under both of its brands, "PimaCott™," for DNA-tagged Pima cotton, and "HomeGrown™" for DNA-tagged American Upland cotton.
- -To keep up with demand, APDN is installing its proprietary SigNature T DNA-transfer systems at multiple cotton gins throughout the US.
- -Using APDN's patented SigNature T DNA technology, cotton fibers can be tagged at source, verified as "American grown" and then traced through every step of the supply chain.
- -The company's patented genotyping platform, known as "fiberTyping® ", is used before tagging with SigNature T botanical DNA.
- -fiberTyping is employed to identify the genus and species of the fibers before they are tagged with SigNature T DNA. fiberTyping cannot be used to track a specific cotton batch through the supply chain, a function which can only be accomplished by SigNature T
