Introducing Integrity™ ECO100™

Introducing the world’s first anti-counterfeiting, sustainable sewing thread — A&E’s INTEGRITY™ ECO100™. This achievement in advanced identification and sustainable thread technology is the result of a collaboration between A&E and Applied DNA Sciences (ADNAS). Utilizing ADNAS’s CertainT® molecular-based technology, A&E has developed its Integrity technology, expanding into its 100% recycled thread line, ECO100. By creating this new, sustainable and secure thread solution, brands can authenticate and validate their products, anywhere within the supply chain, by way of a common component – sewing thread.

“Our customers are hyper-aware of the detrimental effects of counterfeit products, from lost sales to the potential loss of brand equity. It’s a real and global threat, said Chris Alt, Executive Vice President, A&E. “Our expansion of INTEGRITY secure thread technology developed with Applied DNA Sciences is a natural progression for us to address our customers’ needs and extend our brand protection solutions.”

A&E’s INTEGRITY™ ECO100™ identification thread line is produced with 100% recycled fiber and combines the technology of Applied DNA Sciences’ proprietary CertainT® with Beacon® platform. This innovation can authenticate a brand’s products and components by using the Beacon technology for a quick, in-the-field optical verification and, when needed, by using a portable qPCR test for a forensic analysis of the molecular tag.

You can learn more about INTEGRITY thread technology and how it can help protect brands via the product literature and full press release below.
