Applied DNA’s proven authentication portfolio
provides protection against counterfeiting and diversion
Products and materials are assigned a secure identity via molecular tagging and other visually-identifiable or machine-readable features. Tagging can be implemented anywhere during the lifecycle or supply chain (source, manufacturing, branding).
Raw materials, components, finished goods and packaging can be tagged using techniques that verify provenance, integrity and authenticity.
Compatible with SigNature molecular tags
Custom molecular tags are produced to work seamlessly with your process and product. Our team will develop, validate and implement the ideal solution to fit your needs.
A unique, encrypted fluorescing signal acts as a covert screening tool that can be easily adapted to packaging and labels through inks, varnishes and coatings.
Each Beacon marker contains a unique molecular tag, creating a strong and flexible end-to-end security solution.
Authenticity and provenance can be determined by conducting in-field validation.
Authentication swabs can be sent to Applied DNA Sciences for full forensic analysis.
The MMR analyzes the profile of illuminated optical elements. Simply place the MMR on a substrate to compare the marked area to a library of known spectral profiles. With the push of a button a “Match” or “No Match” response will appear.
The speed and accuracy of this reader permit easy implementation for supply chain and distribution partners, with little impact to current processes.

how it works
SigNature molecular tag + Beacon locked optical marker is custom formulated for each customer, batch or lot
SigNature molecular tag + Beacon can be added to ink, packaging or labeling
Package/label arrives at local distributor and is verified before being shipped to global distributor
Package/label arrives at global distributor and is verified before being shipped to retailer
Retailer verifies package prior to point of sale
Customer is assured of the authenticity, sustainability and integrity of their purchase
track and trace
Collect data from tagged raw materials as they are incorporated into finished goods.
Information regarding chain of custody, geo-location and date/time stamp, lot or serial number identity are useful for proactive and reactive audits.
Consultants are available to determine the best security practices for your supply chain or application, including implementation, customization and ongoing quality assurance.
