The Applied DNA Sciences logo was designed to create a clear and memorable impression of a dynamic, innovative company. The logo is in the form of a double-stranded DNA helix, with the blue lines representing the four bases, ACGT, that are the building blocks of every DNA code or sequence. The curved font and helix combined with the smooth, straight blue lines communicate a forward-moving culture, with clear technological goals. The color black communicates value, substance and a sense of potential and possibility, combined with blue that conveys trust, dependability, security, with a modern technological sensibility.

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

DNA takes document security to a forensic level

                        Product authentication for natural and man-made textiles is essential to maintaining profitability and consumer safety/satisfaction. Adding DNA markers to fabrics, threads and finished goods, and the analysis of inherent fiber DNA, can help restore order to the global textile community.

Applied DNA has been actively developing forensic DNA marking solutions that protect all electronic components - semiconductors, microchips, printed circuit boards (PCBs), resistors, capacitors, and routers. These solutions provide the muscle for supply chain security.

DNA taggants are the most advanced and secure technology available to the printing and packaging industries to combat counterfeit products. APDN's SigNature® DNA taggants offer a high level of security and flexibility in a cost-effective and easy-to-use format to suit the requirements and budget of any company

SigNature DNA is proving itself to be the Gold Standard crime fighting technology for the CViT industry. Easy detection and absolute authentication make our DNA ideal for marking offenders, evidence, merchandise or cash in a wide variety of law enforcement operations.

The addition of DNA to cash degradation dye creates the ideal means for linking evidence and criminals to crimes. Deployment in the United Kingdom has yielded multiple criminal prosecutions and a discernible reduction of cash-in-transit attacks in several problem areas.
