Applied DNA Sciences (OTCQB: APDN), (Twitter: @APDN), a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions, was featured on New York's WABC-TV on Thursday, March 6.
The show was filmed at APDN's labs and offices and featured demonstrations of APDN's military electronics platform, the company's textiles identity assurance application SigNature® T, and a full-scale demo of DNA Fog/Smoke Cloak. The latter refers to the company's anti-intrusion system, using security smoke deployment devices made by Denmark-based Smoke Cloak A/S combined with APDN's evidentiary taggant, DNAnet®.

The feature ends with this audio:
"Applied DNA works with the defense department marking microchips with the same plant-based DNA so intelligence officials know they're getting an original product from overseas and not one that has been tampered with.
"'Imagine if a missile is launched, and it's been programmed maliciously,' Meraglia said.
"And then there's the DNA fog system, called Smoke Cloak and widely used in Europe. When activated, it covers burglars, bank robbers or other sprayed recipients in Applied DNA's harmless plant DNA fog. The DNA stays on skin for days, and weapons and stolen goods for years.
"It's amazing what a little plant DNA can accomplish."
