Stony Brook, NY (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Applied DNA Sciences (OTCQB: APDN), (Twitter: @APDN), a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions, is pleased to announce that its DNA Fog/Smoke Cloak anti-intrusion product and forensic services will be featured on the popular national Discovery Channel Canada TV show, Daily Planet, today, Monday, February 3. The show will also be available on the Daily Planet website and via the APDN website on February 4. TV and website details below.
The segment — informative, funny, and dramatic in turns — was filmed on location at APDN’s labs in Stony Brook, New York, and at an ultra-high security facility owned by APDN partner Brink’s, a global leader in security-related services.
DNA Fog/Smoke Cloak is a device which deploys in a crime attempt, taking only seven seconds to fill a room with a fog that immobilizes and marks a criminal with a DNA-based identifier. That mark on a suspect may be authenticated by police with absolute accuracy. The word “amazing” figured prominently in media reports when the product was first rolled out last fall.
The show is a chance for followers of APDN’s unique, DNA-based technology to see one of its products in action.
The TV feature, a short segment on a longer show, shows this truly unique device in action, and visits APDN labs where the company’s forensic authentication analysis takes place.
DNA Fog combines APDN’s DNAnet® taggant with the smoke deployment device made by SmokeCloak, A/S (MSS Professional, or “MSS”) of Agerhatten, Denmark. It is commonly packaged with APDN’s Sentry 500 DNA spray, a device with a similar but more localized effect. The Sentry 500, which produces a targeted spray directed at the suspect, may be combined with the room-filling DNA Fog/Smoke Cloak to provide daunting protection against crimes, as viewers will see in the video.
