Successful DNA Tagging of Leather at one of the World’s largest Tanneries

 Successful DNA Tagging of Leather at one of the World’s largest Tanneries

Applied DNA Sciences recently announced the successful DNA tagging of leather at one of the world’s largest tanneries based in Asia.

 

The work follows on from a successful research project undertaken in the UK with Eurofins | BLC and Applied DNA Sciences; funded by several brand and industry partners.

 

The project started in 2017, with the aim to develop a DNA traceability system that would provide full traceability throughout the leather supply chain. The system would give a guarantee of product origin, support sustainable, ethical sourcing of hides and skins, and help support consumer confidence in determining the origins of materials in final products. On completion, the project demonstrated that DNA could be used successfully to mark animals, hides, leather, and finished product.

 

The recent work by Applied DNA Sciences that was carried out at one of the world’s largest tannery in Asia, focused on tagging both suede and numerous polyurethane leather finishes in a variety of different colours.  The results provided validation of the project work undertaken with Eurofins | BLC and has paved the way for Signature® DNA technology into the leather industry.

 

Adam Hughes of Eurofins | BLC commented:

“We are pleased that following on from the work completed with our UK team, Applied DNA Sciences have been able to move forward successfully with SigNature® DNA.  DNA tagging has been developed to achieve  traceability throughout the supply chain and is mapping the future for sustainability in the leather industry.”
