Applied DNA Sciences to Provide DNA-Embedded Security to Oil Company

NEW YORK, April 22 (GenomeWeb News) - Applied DNA Sciences of Los Angeles said today that it has signed a joint development agreement with an undisclosed international oil manufacturer and supplier to use the Applied DNA technology to deter theft, piracy, and fraud of petroleum products.


Applied DNA embeds non-human DNA into a variety of consumer and industrial products as a security measure. In January, it signed a deal with industrial printer Lustre-Cal Nameplate to co-develop anti-counterfeit security labels using DNA-embedded ink.
