DNA in Chips To Aid Security

STONY BROOK, NY | Applied DNA (APDN) Sciences has completed a program to DNA mark microchips for the Defense Logistics Agency of the US Dept. of Defense (DOD). Used systematically, DNA marking could prevent counterfeit microchips, which might be defective and possibly dangerous, from entry at any point in the DOD's supply chain. APDN says the initial results were so successful that the company has been awarded a follow-on contract of almost $1 million to fully engage one of the government's microchip supply chains.

APDN says the project could be a significant first step toward a major role in supply chain defense with government and in business-to-business relationships with Original Chip Manufacturers, distributors, and makers of printed circuit boards and finished electronic goods.
