Applied DNA Sciences Showcasing Apparel Anti-Counterfeiting Tech at Heimtextil

Applied DNA Sciences, a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions, is exhibiting at the Heimtextil International Trade Fair for Home and Contract Textiles in Frankfurt, Germany, from Jan. 8–11, 2013.

APDN will be participating under the auspices of the US Department of Commerce, and will be showing its new SigNature T identity assurance platform for textiles. The platform is capable of protecting textiles and apparel from counterfeiting and dilution at any stage in the textile supply chain.

Heimtextil is the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles and is widely seen as the global benchmark for quality design textiles of innovative functionality.

This new technology is already in production with Supima, the promotional association of American Pima cotton growers.

Supima is currently using SigNature T to protect nearly 50 million kilograms of raw, top-quality cotton fiber. Even at this scale, fiber can be pervasively marked using a single DNA marker, offering strong adhesion to the fiber, and providing a means to authenticate anywhere along the supply chain from fiber to the finished product; from distributor, to retailer, to consumer.
