    Applied DNA Sciences Secures Laser Toners
    BROOK, NY — 04/09 — Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., a provider of
    DNA-based security solutions, announced today that it has developed a
    patent-pending system to help mitigate loss of revenue, product recalls
    and compromised warranties caused by toxic supply chains. It has
    previously filed a patent to cover its proprietary system and methods
    for secure document printing and detection of cartridges and laser
    that have been counterfeited or diverted to a secondary, grey market.

    Schofield, Schofield Imaging Associates, “Fighting back against
    counterfeiters is a win-win situation for manufacturers, businesses and
    ultimately the consumer. By protecting the toner and the cartridge
    itself with DNA, you have a much better chance of authenticating a
    genuine product from a fake. This makes it an ideal solution for
    protecting brand integrity and performance in commercial and consumer

    SigNature® DNA is infinitely
    variable. Specific DNA sequences can be used to mark the outside of the
    toner cartridge or the toner powder itself.
    –  Limits the infiltration of illegal toners into re-manufactured
        cartridges – Imaging Supplies Coalition estimates that fake ink and toner
        cartridges resulted in a $2 billion loss to its member companies in 2003
        (including Brother, Canon, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung, Lexmark, Oki
        Data, Sharp Electronics, Toshiba, and Xerox).
    –  Securing the Cartridge – use security marks with DNA on the outside of
        the cartridge to help prevent illegally re-manufactured cartridges from
        entering the marketplace.
    –  Help Protect Printer Devices – against the use of illegal cartridges
        that force repairs and invalidate warranties.
    –  Enhance Safeguarding of Retailers and Manufacturers – against the
        infiltration of illegal cartridges into the supply chain.
    –  Empowering Consumers, Corporations, and Governments alike – to print
        secure documents that can be traced to a single, specific toner cartridge.

    Benjamin Liang, Chief Technology Officer, stated, “SigNature DNA
    persists in toner ink and also after it is printed on paper. It does
    not alter the quality of the ink or printed material. We can
    authenticate our DNA from laser ink in a non-destructive manner.”

    SigNature DNA in Laser Printed Documents
    the dawn of the information age came the ability to duplicate, change,
    alter and distribute virtually any printed document at little or no
    cost. Measures to defend against counterfeited documents are being
    taken by many corporations, but until now, there has been no
    comprehensive, systematic and cost effective solution to prevent
    counterfeiting or diversion.”DNA can be used to provide a singular
    identifier that can be used to mark extremely valuable documents,”
    stated Dr. James Hayward, CEO, APDN. “With DNA in laser toner, a
    conventional printer can now be used as an affordable method to print
    any secure document. Wills, stock certificates, birth certificates, and
    even official government documents such as social security cards can
    benefit from DNA.”

    Portfolio of DNA Security Inks
    invention extends APDN’s growing body of work in the protection of
    secure documents and expands upon its successes with security inks,
    including: intaglio, inkjet, thermal transfer, UV-curable, screen
    printed, flexographic and offset printed inks.APDN is soliciting
    commercial partners and will officially unveil its Signature DNA in
    Toner success at IMI’s 12th Annual Toner Conference in Phoenix,
    Arizona, May 4-6, 2009, and 20th Annual Thermal Conference in Orlando,
    Florida, May 11-13, 2009 (

    About APDN
    sells patented DNA security solutions to protect products, brands and
    intellectual property from counterfeiting and diversion. SigNature DNA
    is a botanical mark used to authenticate products in a unique manner
    that essentially cannot be copied. APDN also provides BioMaterial
    GenoTyping(TM) by detecting genomic DNA in natural materials to
    authenticate finished products. Both technologies protect brands and
    products in a wide range of industries and provide a forensic chain of
    evidence that can be used to prosecute perpetrators. To learn more, go
