Sponsored by Businesswire

DNA Sciences
, Inc. (NASDAQ:APDN), announced today that American &
Efird (A&E), a portfolio company of Elevate Textiles and the world’s
foremost manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing
thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles, has announced it will
be previewing its new line of advanced identification threads, branded
“Integrity” later this month. A&E will publicly display this latest
breakthrough at the upcoming Texprocess trade show in Frankfurt Germany.

“One of the big challenges brands face today centers around
authenticity. Loss of revenue, reputation, and brand trust are some of
the potential outcomes of counterfeit products,” said A&E President,
Chris Alt. “We are looking forward to previewing our new ‘Integrity’
line at the upcoming Texprocess show in Frankfurt.”

Well known for its leadership role in innovation, product quality, and
sustainability, A&E supports many of the world’s top industrial and
consumer brands with thread products that require strict quality and
performance. A&E’s new “Integrity” thread line provides a tool which
adds advanced identification for greater visibility and transparency
into their product creation process.

“Our collaboration with A&E to adopt the CertainT®
platform globally is a key breakthrough for brands, which have not had
the benefit of forensic systems to help them resolve counterfeit and
diversion in their supply chains. We look forward to providing our full
spectrum molecular brand assurance that also includes forensic expert
witness and authentication services to support A&E and its customers in
apparel, footwear, automotive, military and beyond,” stated Dr. James
Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA.
