UK Metropolitan Police Service will be using DNANet™ property marking kits as part of a major initiative to reduce crime
Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. is working with the UK Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) by providing its proprietary DNANet™ property marking kits as part of a major initiative to reduce crime in targeted London neighborhoods.
MPS will be deploying DNAnet markers in thousands of homes where homeowners will be encouraged to mark and register their valuable belongings. In the case of theft, the presence of the unique DNAnet marker enables police to identify stolen goods and trace them to a specific crime scene. The unequaled forensic merit of DNAnet markers empowers municipalities to apprehend and convict criminals. In the long term, crime deterrence rises from enhanced policing and prosecution power. Street and home signage announcing the use of DNAnet markers will place potential offenders on alert, offering additional deterrence value.
The value of DNA-based law enforcement tools offered by Applied DNA Sciences, is well known in the United Kingdom. Recently, Applied DNA Sciences was awarded the Excellence in Policing award and POP (“Problem Oriented Policing”) award. These awards recognized APDN's SigNature®DNA technology which helped the Lancashire constabulary to positively identify and prosecute perpetrators in the UK. In December 2011, APDN was awarded the coveted Tilley award from both Houses of Parliament for the contribution of SigNature DNA in the resolution of the Blackburn robbery case which resulted in five convictions with a total of 55 years of sentencing . In a separate case, SigNature DNA helped in the dismantling of a major UK drug ring where eleven cartel members were sentenced to a total of 31 years in prison.
intruder/offender tagging devices tag criminals with a DNA spray.
DNAnet intruder tagging systems help to expand and strengthen any security effort by providing a means of directly linking criminals to crimes. In the event of a crime, the fleeing offender is sprayed with an indelible DNA-marked fluorescing dye. As the crime is investigated, the fluorescing DNA mark can assist police in linking the offender and stolen items to a specific crime scene, creating a greater ability to identify and convict.
Easy to Install - can run as a standalone system or can be easily integrated into an existing security system.
Quick Trace in the Field - the DNAnet mark emits a Bright Yellow UV Signal making it easy to identify on the spot. Once the signal has been detected, the evidence is sent to Applied DNA Sciences for forensic evaluation.
The Power to Convict - laboratory analysis of the forensic DNAnet marker is summarized and presented in an Expert Witness Report.
Deterrence - With forensic DNA at its core, DNAnet is a very effective crime deterrent. Compelling warning decals posted at point of use place criminals on alert.
Application - While any commercial/retail establishment could benefit from the addition of a DNAnet system, ideal areas of use include: banks, ATMs, pharmacies, jewelry stores, convenience stores, pawn brokers and gun shops.

Link criminals to crimes with DNAnet, a tactical forensic system providing unique DNA codes for covert operations that require absolute proof of authentication. DNAnet products contain a fluorescing marker that glows bright yellow under UV light, plus a unique botanical DNA code that links criminals to the crime scene.
Easy to Use - DNAnet tactical markers are suitable for range of surfaces including as paper,metals, wood, laminates, glass, UPVC, plastics, masonry and cabling. We offer products for virtually every application.
Quick Trace in the Field - the DNAnet mark emits a bright yellow UV signal making it easy to identify on the spot. Once the signal has been detected, the evidence is swabbed and sent to Applied DNA Sciences for forensic evaluation.
Power to Convict - laboratory analysis of the forensic DNAnet marker is summarized in an Expert Witness Report.
For special operations, we can also create unique DNA codes to mark security inks, thermal transfer ribbon, laser toner, adhesives, and other carriers that can be used to print time-date sensitive or confidential documents.
Using DNA as a forensic foundation, Applied DNA Sciences assembles unique security solutions that address the challenges of brand protection, supply chain security, item provenance and criminal theft. DNAnet forensic tagging systems help to directly link criminals to crimes, creating a better opportunity to identify and convict.
DNAnet Transferable Tactical Markers
Marks criminals and evidence with a unique DNA mark that can be transfered from one item to another, and can link the criminal to the crime scene. Ideal for marking building entry points that intruders could touch, as well as internal sting operations and drug busts.
Designed to provide forensic protection that is contact transferable once applied on the marked object. Does not dry, but leaves a lubricant film. Typically lasts through 10 transfer incidents.
Working directly with police and other security agencies, Applied DNA Sciences has measurably reduced crime and provided 21st century technology
Deter and detect crimes such as robbery, theft, kidnapping and vandalism with the proven, forensic power of SigNature DNA.
An item is marked with a stealth DNA marker – not detectable by offenders. Upon item recovery, a surface swab sample is taken and evaluated in the Applied DNA Sciences technology center. Additionally, surface swabs of offender hands and clothing are analyzed. Presence of the marker provides forensic evidence/offender linkage to crimes. Perfect for ransom recovery and narcotics operations.
An item is marked with layered marker; DNA and an instant-detection mechanism – detectable with UV light or laser. Items/offenders can be screened in the field. Forensic evaluation can then be conducted at the Applied DNA Sciences technology center. Perfect for marking police equipment, sting operations and credentials.
SigNature DNA is compatible with a wide variety of materials, and can be safely applied to fabrics, plastics, metals, narcotics and product packaging.
