3SI Security Systems To Expand Use Of Applied DNA Sciences' (APDN) Cash Protection Technology

|Includes: Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (APDN)

Applied DNA Sciences, a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions, today said that 3SI Security Systems is expanding its use of APDN's SigNature® DNA evidence marking product into 3SI smoke and dye cash protection systems in Europe. SigNature DNA is used to protect approximately 26% of cash movements in the United Kingdom.

3SI Security Systems is an asset protection systems company with expertise in recovering stolen cash and high-value assets, apprehending criminals, and deterring crime. The company already uses SigNature DNA marks to protect nearly 5,000 ATMs, using a DNA ink system that, when triggered, marks all the cash inside the ATM and the criminals.

3SI now plans to integrate SigNature DNA into the smoke and dye system, called Thinpac™, which is already in use in more than 130,000 locations worldwide. 3SI believes SigNature DNA is complementary to the Thinpac, calling the combination "a unique and leading edge security feature."

APDN noted the popularity and acceptance of SigNature DNA among police forces across Europe as a means for cash protection and conviction of criminal activity.

"Our SigNature DNA product is now used in many countries across Europe and is increasingly popular with police. One of our best examples of how the police make excellent use of our DNA to catch criminals is in the United Kingdom where 48 criminals have already been convicted and jailed for over 242 years, providing a great deterrent that has helped to significantly reduce the number of Cash in Transit robberies," James Hayward, chairman and CEO of APDN stated in the press release.
