Micross Components, a global provider of specialty electronic components with a 35 year history in providing authentic, high-reliability products, has completed the training process to become a certified SigNature® DNA Third-Party Marker by Applied DNA Sciences, Inc., a provider of DNA-based authentication and security solutions. Their Clearwater, Florida facility has been audited and approved to securely store multiple unique SigNature® DNA marks and apply them on behalf of customers.
Certified Third-Party Markers play a key role in APDN’s anti-counterfeiting solution by offering companies a way to efficiently and immediately begin SigNature® DNA-marking their products.
