UL, a leading global safety science organization, yesterday announced that together with Applied DNA Sciences they have joined forces to form a strategic partnership that will lay the foundation for a significant new development in product authentication and supply chain traceability.
.
This partnership will enable UL to offer a series of Verification Marks for point-of-origin and product content, utilizing Applied DNA’s SigNature molecular tags. The DNA tag marks products in order to create a unique “fingerprint” that can be traced throughout a product’s journey in the supply chain. This technology combined with UL’s expertise and experience in testing, audit, and inspection service offerings equips manufacturers, governments, trade organizations, brands and end consumers with a tool to validate the very source and content of products, thus instilling an added level of confidence and empowering trust.
