About Applied DNA Sciences Inc.

Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. provides botanical-DNA based security and authentication solutions that can help protect products, brands, and intellectual property of companies, governments, and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud, and diversion. The company offers its products and services in Europe and the United States.

The company's principal anti-counterfeiting and product authentication solutions, such as SigNature DNA, Cashield, DNANet, and BioMaterial Genotyping, are used in various industries, including cash-in-transit (transport and storage of banknotes), homeland security, textiles and apparel, identity cards and other secure documents, law enforcement, pharmaceuticals, wine, and luxury consumer goods.

SigNature DNA

The company uses the DNA of plants to manufacture customized and encrypted botanical DNA markers, or SigNature DNA Markers. It has embedded SigNature DNA Markers into a range of its customers’ products, including various inks, dyes, textile treatments, thermal ribbon, thread, varnishes, and adhesives. These items can then be tested for the presence of SigNature DNA Markers through instant field detection or a forensic level authentication.

The company’s SigNature DNA solution provides a means for users to incorporate its SigNature DNA Markers in, and then authenticate and identify, a range of items, such as recovered banknotes, branded textiles and apparel products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products, identity cards and other secure documents, digital media, artwork and collectibles, and fine wine. Having the ability to authenticate and identify counterfeit versions of such items enables companies and governments to detect, deter, interdict and prosecute counterfeiting enterprises and individuals.

The company's SigNature DNA Embedment system can be used to embed the SigNature DNA Marker directly onto products or other items or into special inks, threads and other media, which in turn can be incorporated into packaging or products. Its SigNature polymerase chain reaction (PCR) Kits can provide rapid forensic level authentication of specific SigNature DNA Markers.

The company’s SigNature solution can be used for various types of identification and official documents, such as passports; lawful permanent resident, or ‘green’ cards; visas; drivers’ licenses; social security cards; military identification cards; national transportation cards; security cards for access to sensitive physical locations; and other important identity cards, official documents, and security-related cards.


Cashield is a family of cash degradation inks that permanently stain banknotes stolen from cash-handling or ATM systems. Cashield extends its offering beyond its prior singular product, AzSure, to a family of security inks that include Red, Violet, Green, Teal, Indigo, and the original AzSure Blue.


The company has developed DNANet tactical DNA products for law enforcement, in the form of DNA-marked sprays and liquids. These products, being marketed to global police forces were created to help link criminals to crimes. DNANet is a tactical forensic system providing unique DNA codes for covert operations that require absolute proof of authentication.

BioMaterial GenoTyping

The company’s BioMaterial GenoTyping solution refers to the development of genetic assays to distinguish between varieties or strains of biomaterials, such as cotton, wool, tobacco, fermented beverages, natural drugs, and foods that contain their own source DNA. The company has developed two proprietary genetic tests (FiberTyping and PimaTyping) to track American Pima cotton from the field to finished garments. These genetic assays provide the textile industry with authentication tools that can be applied throughout the U.S. and worldwide textile industry from cotton growers, mills, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and retailers through trade groups and government agencies.

The company’s FiberTyping offering enables its customers and potential clients to give assurance to manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, and end-users that their products are authentic, that they are made from the fibers and textiles as labeled. In a process called Pimatyping, the company is able to differentiate between Pima cotton grown in different regions of the world.

Discontinued Operations

In 2009, the company discontinued its BioActive Ingredients program. It has developed BioActive Ingredients for personal care products, such as skin care products.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
