About SelectaDNA Forensic Marking Technology:

The forensic technology is synthetically manufactured in an accredited ISO 17025 laboratory.  It is scientifically structured, and functions, the same as organic DNA – but is more durable.  Each unit of the forensic solution contains a universally unique code (sequence), which is never replicated; thus; providing an exclusive identifying marker for each client.  Each unique forensic code provides an uncontestable link between a criminal, or stolen item, to a specific crime scene and the rightful owners.

The forensic solution is invisible, non-toxic and water-based and remains on marked criminals’ skin for four to six weeks, and clothing for two to three months, and on hard surfaces for a minimum of five years. The solution is only visible via a special frequency UV light, leaving criminals exposed to identification and apprehension long after committing a crime.

The crime-fighting offerings solutions for a wide range of crime issues, including the Intruder Spray System, Asset Marking Kits, Tagging Sprays, DNA Trace, DNA Gel, DNA Spray Shield and High Velocity Tagging System.

The Intruder Spray System can be integrated with other security systems such as burglary, access control, intrusion, video, and many others. It can also be installed as a standalone crime-fighting solution. There are various modalities of system activation, including but not limited to panic buttons, money clips, remote video monitoring, RFID and facial recognition technology.
