Applied DNA has developed CertainT system for marking leather through the leather value chain by using a DNA tag. This molecular-based technology can help protect leather products, brands, entire supply chains, and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion. Applied DNA is a provider of molecular technologies that enable supply chain security, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping and isolation of circulating tumor cells and the development of pre-clinical nucleic acid-based therapeutic drug candidates. Applied DNA makes life real and safe by providing innovative, molecular-based technology solutions and services that can help protect products, brands, entire supply chains, and intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion.
Applied DNA Sciences is a leader in Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)-based DNA manufacturing. It has announced successful DNA tagging of leather at one of the world’s largest tanneries in Asia. The work follows a successful research project undertaken within the UK that demonstrated Signature DNA could be used to trace hide of an animal from a farm to product in a store. Effective traceability of materials up the supply chain is the best way to manage sustainability risks and mitigate against potential environmental and social challenges.
