In 1998, it reincorporated in Nevada, and in 2002, it changed its name to its current name, Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. In December 2008, it completed its reincorporation from Nevada to the State of Delaware. The Company is a provider of botanical-DNA based security and authentication solutions that could help protect products, brands and intellectual property of companies, governments and consumers from theft, counterfeiting, fraud and diversion. SigNature(r) DNA and BioMaterial(tm) Genotyping, its principal anti-counterfeiting and product authentication solutions, could be used in numerous industries, including cash-in-transit (transport and storage of banknotes), textiles and apparel, identity cards and other secure documents, pharmaceuticals, wine, and luxury consumer goods. It uses the DNA of plants to manufacture highly customized and encrypted botanical DNA markers, or SigNature DNA Markers, which are virtually impossible to replicate. 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. 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.
