                        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.

DNANET is neighborhood marking used by British law enforcement to mark thousands of streets as protected by APDN's spray
