A provider of molecular-based security and authentication solutions is rolling out a new security print platform solution.

Called SigNature, and featuring the Videojet 1860M continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer, the solution has been developed by Applied DNA Sciences to help manufacturers and brands implement a secure tag, test and track capability into existing production lines quickly.

First reported by PKN following the solution's launch at Pack Expo Las Vegas last year, the system offers the potential to empower the tagging of countless commercial items, enabling traceability along the entire supply chain.

SigNature molecular ink, delivered with a Videojet 1860M printer, is created with the addition of a secure molecular tag and is qualified in both black (V4221M) and invisible (V4259M), which can fluoresce blue under UV, say the companies.

The security platform allows companies to tag, test, and track a unique molecular tag applied to products or packaging during the manufacturing process.

It provides a supply chain management tool to proactively track items globally, adding another level of protection against counterfeits and diversion, and turns the inkjet code into a comprehensive supply chain certification solution.

The molecular tags facilitate traceability of products and packaging, enabling such claims as the forensic certification of origin, authenticity, provenance, quality, ethics, integrity, or sustainability. The print platform features black and clear inks to meet various application needs associated with supply chain management and brand protection.
