Reading materials: The prestigious Material ConneXion library — including samples available at facilities around the globe — now includes products manufactured by Applied DNA Sciences.

It’s been a banner month for Applied DNA Sciences, with two new deals both reaffirming the biotech’s scientific value and significantly extending its commercial reach.

On Friday, the provider of DNA-focused supply chain, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technologies announced that its SigNature molecular tag technology had been added to global materials-innovator Material ConneXion’s prestigious library – exposing Applied DNA’s wares to scientists, manufacturers and makers around the world, a potentially enormous commercial coup.

The Stony Brook biotech followed that happy news by announcing Monday that Techmer PM, a respected producer of colors and additives for the plastic and fiber industries and longtime SigNature customer, has signed a new trademark license agreement that will add Applied DNA’s exclusive CertainT trademark to its products – a public declaration of their authenticity and the Tennessee company’s supply-chain transparency.
