Results of a new study published in the September/October 2018 issue of the AATCC Review confirmed that DNA molecular tagging is an effective tool to authenticate denim and maintains its integrity even after exposed to the rigors of bleaching and abrasion. “DNA Molecular Tagging is an Effective Tool to Authenticate Denim, One of the Toughest Fabrics” was conducted by Applied DNA Sciences Inc. and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Denim swatches were treated with unique DNA molecular tags, then subjected to stone and bleach washings. Analysis of the samples showed that the DNA tags remained intact and suitable for high quality forensic scale analysis.
