APDN Completes Trial Of SigNature® T To Protect Cotton

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. (APDN), Stony Brook, N.Y., has completed a large-scale trial of its SigNature® T anti-counterfeiting platform. The trial involved using the technology to mark international cotton crops to protect them from counterfeiting and dilution.

SigNature T uses APDN’s botanically derived SigNature DNA markers to mark and authenticate fibers, yarn, fabric, garments and labels at any point along the supply chain.

In a trial conducted at an undisclosed location on foreign soil, SigNature DNA was applied to five tons of the finest extra-long-staple (ELS) cotton. APDN reports its scientists were able to identify the difference between authentic and counterfeit in every test at each major step of the cotton logistics chain. In addition, the APDN mark on the cotton withstood aggressive processing, industrial washing and other harsh treatments.

This is the second such use of the SigNature T platform for textiles and apparel. APDN has also teamed with Supima, Phoenix, to mark, identify and protect 100-percent U.S.-grown American Pima or ELS cotton from counterfeiting and blending. Work began in November 2013 to mark nearly 50 million kilograms of cotton at a major cotton grower and is expected to continue through February 2014.
