DNA SECURITY TECHNOLOGIES WINS R&D AWARD; CHARLES BUTLAND HONORED AT R&D CEREMONY
G. Dale Garlow, President of DNA Security Technologies, states, "Our patented DNA authenticating products are elegant, effective and efficient solutions to counterfeiting and diversion problems that cost American business more than $250 billion annually. Art works, collectibles, memorabilia, financial instruments, software, videos, recorded music, brand-name clothing and accessories, baby food, perfume, and a great variety of other products are regularly counterfeited. The ability to determine what is genuine and identify the source of manufacture has become an essential part of international business. We are dedicated to becoming the preeminent provider of proof-of- authenticity and proof-of-source markings in the world."
The news media reports that a significant percentage of all collectibles including original art, limited edition art, and at least 10% of sports memorabilia such as autographed baseball cards, etc. are forgeries or counterfeit. As a result, athletes including Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Joe Namath, and Sandy Koufax will soon sign their commercially collectible autographs with the Company's special DNA ink. Joe Barbera, co-founder of the Hanna-Barbera animation team, signs his limited-edition, cartoon cels featuring "The Flintstones," "The Jetsons," "Yogi Bear," and "Scooby Doo" with genetic ink from DNA Security Technologies.
DNA has become synonymous with proof of identity and scientific accuracy. DNA, the fundamental genetic material of humans and every living organism, defines the uniqueness of each individual. The authenticity of DNA signatures and commercial markings cannot be refuted. Duplication of the company's DNA security identification system is considered by experts to be virtually impossible, and, even if it were possible, prohibitively expensive. Due primarily to criminal law, our patented DNA Identification System is one of the few methods for authentication which is recognized as being valid for admission as evidence in court.
The Company is currently seeking an investment banker in order to raise capital for manufacturing, inventory, marketing, and strategic acquisitions. The Company's DNA Identification System is in a position to become dominant in the world-wide market for security markings.
