Applied DNA Sciences Partners with Camden County Police Chiefs Association to Launch the DNA Home Asset Marking Program

Applied DNA Sciences has partnered with the Camden County Police Chiefs Association to launch the DNA Home Asset Marking Program for residents throughout Camden County, NJ. Utilizing the Company's DNAnetA(R) plant-based DNA product, the program is intended to serve as a countywide deterrent and will assist law enforcement in returning stolen property to owners. This initiative follows the Company's previously announced partnership with law enforcement and government agencies in Suffolk County, NY, to utilize DNAnet in a pilot program to protect home and business owners. The DNA Home Asset Marking Program enables home and business owners to mark property with a unique and invisible plant based DNA specific to the owner. The DNA mark on the property is easily identifiable by law enforcement utilizing ultraviolet light. The DNA mark is nearly impossible to remove. Homeowners who mark personal property with the plant-based DNA are supplied signs and window decals warning would-be intruders that their property is marked with plant-based DNA.

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. Signs Agreement with Louis Dreyfus Commodities

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. has signed an agreement with Louis Dreyfus Commodities to provide secure logistic supply chain support for the tagging and authentication of cotton fibers with SigNatureA(R) T DNA derived from botanical genomes. Using APDN's patented SigNature T DNA technology, cotton fibers can be DNA-tagged at the source or country of origin, allowing purity of content verification at all stages of the supply chain. Bulk quantities of last year's Pima harvest have already been processed using this method and are currently being verified throughout the supply chain, from the ginner, to the spinner and ultimately to the manufacturer. This year's SigNature T tagging will begin at the start of the ginning season, at various locations in the United States. Louis Dreyfus Commodities will collect the DNA-marking fees from its customers and pay them to APDN. It will also pay APDN to install their unique, patent-pending "DNA Application Systems" at each new gin, typically capable of DNA marking up to 50 million pounds of cotton per season. The DNA Application System measures the botanical DNA so that a constant level of DNA marking per pound of cotton is provided at extraordinarily low levels.

Applied Dna Sciences Inc. Launches HomeGrowna, Cotton

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. announced the launch of HomeGrowna, Cotton Proudly Grown in the USA. HomeGrown cotton will be exclusively American grown upland cotton. These fibers will be tagged at source, and verified from grower to consumer through Applied DNA Sciences' botanical DNA traceability technology.
