Co-Branded Applied DNA SigNature® Molecular-Tagged Videojet Inks and Co-Branded Printer on Display at Booth #1019

STONY BROOK, NY (November 28, 2017) Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (“Applied DNA,” “the company,” NASDAQ: APDN) will exhibit its new security print platform developed with Videojet Technologies (Videojet) at the Defense Manufacturing Conference 2017 (DMC 2017) in Tampa, FL on December 4-6 at Booth #1019. Janice Meraglia, Vice President of Government & Military Programs, and Bob MacDowell, Director of Government & Military Programs, will be attending the conference.

The platform utilizes Videojet’s recently released 1860 continuous inkjet printer, which is co-branded with Applied DNA, along with co-branded Videojet inks that incorporate Applied DNA’s unique SigNature® molecular tag into each individual Smart Cartridge ink cartridge. The SigNature molecular ink is a turnkey, high-volume ink that offers per-part traceability. The inks are brand-specific, enabling each brand to tag, test and track their products from source to shelf under a CertainT® licensing agreement.

The initial rollout of co-branded SigNature molecular-tagged inks includes an aerospace-approved ink. This durable black ink was chosen to qualify first, due to its specific application and use in the U.S. military and aerospace industry for item unique identifier (IUID) tags for an array of critical components spanning several Federal Supply Groups (FSGs).

Janice Meraglia said, “We look forward to showcasing this unique platform, which is designed to enable defense suppliers to forensically tag products and packaging. Once tagged, other supply chain participants can independently conduct in-field tests along the supply chain, track globally to certify product claims, and prevent diversion and counterfeits.”  

The DMC is where top government and industry leaders and manufacturing subject matter experts gather to communicate and collaborate on policies, strategic direction, best practices, funding opportunities, and the latest innovations in support of defense manufacturing priorities. The DMC will be conducted simultaneously with the Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) Conference.
