Developed through a collaboration of technologies, A&E and Applied DNA Sciences (ADNAS) set out to create a reliable, economically viable, and sustainable solution brands can use to authenticate and validate their sewn products, anywhere within the supply chain. A solution using a common component — sewing thread. The result is Integrity™ ECO100.
“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.”
Combining Integrity™, created with ADNAS’s CertainT® molecular-based technology, with its 100% recycled thread line, ECO100, these new sewing threads provide a sustainable, and secure thread solution — a solution unparalleled in the industry.
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.
