Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. Expands digitalDNA Software and Services Platform

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. announced the expansion of its digitalDNA® software and services platform to enable customers' business process controls and supply chain partner collaboration throughout the entire lifecycle of marking, validating and authenticating goods. The new features enhance the foundation of bar code item tracking layered with SigNature® DNA as the forensic backstop. New features on the secure cloud application include DNA custody management, forensic sample submission, CODA (certificate of DNA authentication) issuance, customer account administration, order placement, status tracking and reporting, and online training. Scanning bar code item numbers on marked goods enables individuals to post or access information about a product such as its geo-location, original image or associated documentation. Consumers may take advantage of marketing information supplied by brand owners. The system is operational and has managed the marking and authentications processes for over 40,000 electronics parts. Market-specific configurations have been demonstrated to businesses in textiles supply chain, printing/publishing, art and collectibles and law enforcement. The cloud-based platform is designed to be customizable for the particular attributes of each customer's business and operates either as a stand-alone system or interfaced to an enterprise business system or other third-party platform. It conforms to strict security standards for ISO, PCI, and Federal Information Processing Standards. This digitalDNA platform is designed as the data management and reporting hub for APDN's recently announced devices for DNA on-site authentication and optical mark in-field validation. In addition, using standard software and development tools, the system supports APDN-certified third-party devices such as InData Systems' covert "invisible bar code" scanning, and any browser-based enterprise or consumer devices such as mobile computers, smartphones and tablets.

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. Launches DNA Mark Identification Technology Platform, DNA Beacon

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. announced the launching of a new technology, based on the use of a panel of novel, fluorescent, encrypted security elements, the patent-pending ‘DNA Beacon’ technology, that is designed to integrate seamlessly with SigNature DNA platform. The Beacon technology is designed to identify APDN DNA-marked products, by encrypted fluorescence, throughout an entire supply chain or through high-value asset chain-of-custody. By combining SigNature DNA mark with the new Beacon technology, APDN's new combined technology platform can now accelerate the fight against counterfeiting, diversion and theft. Once a product is marked, identification in the field is easily conducted with the use of a simple Beacon activator (which chemically decrypts the Beacon) and a UV light, to be followed by forensic-grade DNA authentication, when required. An indication of the unique robustness of the Beacon technology is its ability to survive flame temperatures in excess of 1000°C. Thus, it is well suited to prevent crimes such as copper theft where criminals sometimes burn the wire sheathing to expose bare copper for sale. This new technology platform complements APDN's current product, solution and service portfolio, including the recently announced Multi-Modal reader prototype. These interlocking platforms offer the marketplace an array of DNA-based security solutions, which enable users to DNA-mark, identify and authenticate a product or asset as it moves through a secure supply chain or between people or facilities.
