Universal Biometric unveils DNA anti-counterfeit label in the Middle East
Pakistan’s Universal Biometric has unveiled its DNA anti-counterfeit label in Middle East. The patented biotechnology combines specially processed DNA with anti-counterfeit ink, which can be applied to paper, cloth and plastic labels.
Counterfeiting, forgery and identity theft of high-value brand name products is one of the fastest growing industries around the world. Universal Biometric utilizes a proprietary line of DNA embedded- biotechnology products from the United States that protect corporate and intellectual property from counterfeiting and fraud. Labels are printed with proprietary ink containing an authentication DNA code for each manufacturer. Labels can then be easily tested for manufacturers' authenticity and traced to the authorized point of origin.
By using bio-engineered DNA as an invisible and highly specific identification tag, forensic-level authentication of a tagged item verifies the manufacturer and source of the product. DNA tagging has the ability to protect brand name products from counterfeiters' tools of the trade, such as precision computer scanning and printing equipment. — (menareport.com)
