STONY BROOK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) - Applied DNA Sciences (OTCQB: APDN), (Twitter: @APDN), a provider of DNA-based anti-counterfeiting technology and product authentication solutions, announced today that Brink's, a leading global security solutions provider, has purchased a unique SigNature® DNA mark capable of deployment by Brink's in various worldwide operations.

The first Brink's SigNature DNA application will use the unique Brink's mark to protect cash and high-value items using a security tape for loss prevention purposes. Materials and support for the application will also come from The Label Printers, a leading custom label and packaging corporation globally.

SigNature DNA marks may be used in a variety of applications such as APDN's DNA Fog product, designed to repel and identify intruders into large areas such as warehouses, as well as evidentiary marking on individual items such as jewelry, protection of ATMs, and cash transport.

Based in Richmond, Virginia, Brink's is a global leader in security-related services for banks, financial institutions, retailers, government agencies, mints, jewelers, and a variety of other commercial and governmental customers. The SigNature DNA mark is relevant to many of these Brink's businesses, such as protection of high value items in transit, antitheft applications in banks and cash depots, and protection of cargo.

Richard Schurtleff, Brink's Senior Vice President for Global Security, commented:

"We believe Applied DNA Sciences technology provides great value and a key differentiator for our product lines. We look forward to exploring integration of the technology into our security applications worldwide."
