Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP represented Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) in the negotiation of an agreement with textile manufacturer Himatsingka America, Inc. to incorporate the company’s molecular tag technology, SigNature® T, in products sold to retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Costco where source-traceable product is now available nationwide and online.

Applied DNA Sciences provides DNA-based supply chain, anti-counterfeiting and anti-theft technology, product genotyping, and product authentication solutions.  SigNature T is a molecular tag that attaches to cotton fiber at the gin, ensuring reliable traceability and verification throughout an entire supply chain. SigNature T enables verification that Pimacott®-branded products sold to consumers, including comforters, pillow cases, and shams, are made from pure Pima cotton, grown in the San Joaquin Valley, California. It also powers the Himatsingka-branded “HomeGrown™ – Cotton Proudly Grown in the USA” cotton products verifying traceability to gins in Arkansas, Texas, and California.

“Today, consumers care deeply about where their products originate.  With our technology, retailers and brands can be confident that the products on their shelves are true to the label,” said Dr. James Hayward, President and CEO of Applied DNA Sciences.

“One of the thrills of working on Long Island is when you can represent one of its gems,” said Joe Campolo, Managing Partner of Campolo, Middleton & McCormick.  “Applied DNA Sciences, under Jim Hayward’s leadership, is a truly innovative company and this deal will help bring product transparency to millions of consumers.”
