The company produces bank cards under licenses from Visa and Master Card and chip-based smart cards and prepaid calling cards.

The companies will explore the potential for integrating Applied DNAs technology into additives or coatings for use in paper, film, and printing products that require technology with the highest barrier of security. Applied DNA Sciences DNA-embedded technology can be applied in specific media such as ink, paint, glue, polymers, and labels and incorporated into microchips. The characteristics of the DNA can be read to identify, tag and distinguish genuine products from counterfeits. The program will focus on identifying the best placement, within the security and monetary printing and manufacturing process, to embed the Applied DNA Sciences Marker Technology.
