World’s foremost thread manufacturer A&E has collaborated with Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (APDN) to launch A&E’s IntegrityTM advanced identification thread technology that is available for its Eco100 recycled thread line.
As per Apparel Resources, the IntegrityTM ECO100 provides innovative and chemical solution for brands to authenticate and validate their products in supply chain by sewing thread. Made of 100 per cent recycled fibre, it is a perfect blend of APDN’s proprietary CertainTR and BeaconR platform.
The innovation helps authenticate a brand’s products and components by using the Beacon technology for a quick, in-the-field optical verification and, when needed, by using a portable qPCR test for a forensic analysis of the molecular tag.
It protects the brand as well as supply chains at a time when both security and sustainability are equally important.
A portfolio company of Elevate Textiles, A&E is the foremost manufacturer and distributor of high-quality industrial and consumer quality thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles, which are used globally by makers of apparels, footwear and home furnishing, amongst many others. A&E products are made in 22 countries, distributed in 50 countries and sold in over 100 countries.
