DOC Selects Textile Marker Systems

DOC Selects Textile Marker SystemsConcluding the first phase of its textile marker initiative to trace illegal textile imports, the US Department of Commerce (DOC) has selected three technologies for trial use by US textile companies. Identified during research and evaluations by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tenn., the technologies include an imbedded-DNA textile marker system developed by Applied DNA Sciences Inc., Los Angeles; ultraviolet fluorescent marks; and nano-bar codes. According to Grant Aldonas, DOC under secretary for international trade, the textile companies will make the final decision as to whether one or all of the technologies will be used. Ultimately, the best choice is the lowest-cost technology with the highest enforcement rates, he said. June 2003
