Applied DNA Sciences, Palmetto Synthetics And Techmer PM Join Forces In Synthetics

Applied DNA Sciences Inc (NASDAQ: APDN) disclosed that it has partnered with Palmetto Synthetics, "a leader in the production of high quality, specialty synthetic fiber," and Techmer PM to launch its SigNature T DNA system in synthetic fibers. The partnership also hopes to expand its presence in the athletic apparel industry and the automotive textile category.

Applied DNA Sciences president and CEO James Hayward commented, "We have been a change agent for the cotton fiber market, by bringing certainty to a complex supply chain.

"With our entry into synthetic fibers, Applied DNA Sciences is entering a market that is more than three-times larger than cotton, and is the basis of 60 percent of the global textile industry. In just one DNA tagging campaign, companies can safeguard against product recalls and liability, and elevate their business, based on high integrity, quality, and sustainability to ensure the smallest possible environmental footprint."
