Stony Brook, NY, based Applied DNA Sciences aims “to keep life real and safe” by providing innovative, molecular-based technology solutions and services that can help protect products, brands, entire supply chains, and the intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion.

The company’s proprietary CertainT platform can be used to tag, test, and track products, to help assure authenticity, origin, traceability, as well as the quality of products.

Unique molecular SigNature tags are the core technology ingredient of the Applied DNA Sciences’ family of security and authentication solutions. SigNature T is the product name under the tag module when applied to textiles. It provides a forensic chain of evidence and can be used in a court of law if legal action is required. SigNature T has been used to tag over 150 million pounds of US Pima and Upland cotton under two new brands – PimaCott and HomeGrown Cotton.
