Applied DNA Sciences Expands Forensic Scientific Group

Apr 12, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Applied DNA Sciences, a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions announced the expansion of its forensic scientific group, with the addition of Breanna Mead.

Mead brings forensic crime laboratory experience from the Houston Police Department, and most recently, the Institute for Forensic Genetics (IFG) headquartered in Denver, Colorado. At the IFG, she instructed laboratory analysts and research assistants in forensic techniques and was responsible for the coordination of the application of ISO 17025 accreditation.

Dr. Benjamin Liang, Chief Scientific Officer said, "We are excited to have Breanna on board and expect her contribution to the team to respond to the growing demand for DNA anti-counterfeiting technology and forensic authentications." The increased volume of authentications and laboratory work bears witness to the increasing demand for SigNature DNA. It offers a platform that can compliment any existing security system and it provides the most accepted forensic standard.

According to a 2011 report published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), global counterfeiting losses are forecasted to grow to as high as $1.7 trillion by 2017. The economic impact of this on the US economy alone is as much as $775 billion per year, resulting in lost tax revenue and high government spending on law enforcement and health care.
