Applied DNA Sciences, Wakefield Inspection Services align

Stony Brook, N.Y. -- DNA-based security and product authentication solutions provider Applied DNA Sciences Inc. has signed an agreement with Wakefield Inspection Services for a collaboration to provide global supply chain, traceability and security-driven solutions to customers using SigNature T DNA marking and DNA authentication services.

Operating in more than 60 countries around the world, WIS provides independent quality assessments and inspections with incomparable standards for accurate, objective and quality verification and reporting services.

Applied DNA Sciences' SigNature T DNA platform ensures traceability of textile raw materials from point of origin to finished product. The identity of textiles is thus assured throughout the supply chain.

Combined with the services of WIS, textile customers will be able to gain worldwide access to the consultation, training, documentation, and enhanced inspection services required to ensure a seamless implementation of the program. The products and services offered by both companies aim to give textile customers confidence that raw materials are inspected, marked, tested and forensically authenticated from the point of origin.

"With Applied DNA Sciences, we will map out the most cost-effective processes and procedures for ensuring that the SigNature T DNA marker in fiber, yarn or fabrics can be securely obtained and authenticated throughout virtually any textile supply and logistic chain,” said Greg Wakefield, director, WIS.
