Results of a new study published in the September/October 2018 issue of the AATCC Review have confirmed that DNA molecular tagging is an effective tool to authenticate denim and maintains its integrity even after exposed to the rigours of bleaching and abrasion.

The study was conducted by Applied DNA Sciences Inc. (Applied DNA) and the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). It was published in the AATCC Review, a highly regarded publication of the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colors.
