    • world-wide exclusive patent. Yes, it's true, it is becoming the "law" that any microchip purchased for the military after 1 Oct must have the exclusive APDN marker. "Competitors" are zero. Competitors have some other product completely different, APDN's marker was not able to be broken, therefore it was them instead of anyone else's product that claimed anti-counterfeit marking, and no one can infringe on their patented formulations. The lawsuit someone else talks about is beyond frivolous. So the answer is-no one else can come up with a dna-based marker, patent protected, it is that easy.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • There is no current competition to APDN's DNA platform as the DOD did not mention any other specific study, only APDN was mentioned by name...the DOD funded the APDN study..and only APDN is mandated by the DOD...no other company is mandated by the DOD... good for us.

      I was actually hoping that the PPS would reach $15 so I could buy a small island...Lol...but I suspect a buyout long before that... or so I opine... :)

      APDN's SigNature DNA was tested extensively by DLA, and the DNA markings could not be compromised. DLA found that APDN's SigNature was 100% fool proof. It is the only marking application that was fool proof. This is why APDN has the exclusive contract for DoD anti-counterfeiting mandate.

    • Yup im a skeptic too but the thing that makes this that easy is that the dod and dla did an 18 month trial with only apdn product no one else...and they passed the test. Even if another company tries to create a similar product theyre looking at least 18 months of their own trial...this is history in the making. Thats why it was an easy decision for me.

    • The article was posted on this board 1 month 5 days ago - posting title "Music to my Bankaccount". Since we can no longer post the links (but link is active at that posting) here is what happens as quoted from the article:

      Mandated for over 100 companies: “The number of companies directly affected by the DLA directive is in the hundreds, and includes many of the largest microcircuit manufacturers in the world. APDN reported immediate inquiries from numerous impacted companies.” - Gets contractors (in the pocket book) both coming and going: ” APDN will sell SigNature DNA marks to chip manufacturers, while for distributors the company will sell a source-verification marking program…”   - Mandated - a slice of 3.1 billion dollars (that’s a lot of APDN markings): “The DoD Office of the Director, Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation last year projected the value of all semiconductors sold to DoD in fiscal year 2011 to be $3.1 billion."   - It's a big market out there: “The market value of semiconductors, both military and commercial in all countries in fiscal year 2011 has been estimated at $302 billion…"

    • Should have specified that DLA only mandates that suppliers use Signature DNA, the actual contracts with APDN will be with the suppliers.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • DLA does all the buying for the Military and if you think about how many microchips are in the military........Those are big numbers! Not to mention if they decide to expand the scope down the road to other items coming into the DLA supply chains. IMHO

      Sentiment: Buy

    • DLA mandates that microchips use SigNatureDNA----but that does not extend to all DOD contracts--so ,my opinion, other DNA companies can get a piece of that pie---and DOD rarely relies on one contractor.----just trying to be cautious here----seen this over-hype before..

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Like I said earlier...This starts w/ microchips, which are in just about everything these days in the military. ( computers, weapons systems, navigation devices, tactical commo equip, etc) Plus DOD encompasses civilian functions as well as military functions. I would look for an expansion to other items down the road if this works out well. APDN has been working on this for years so it didn't just happen overnight. Competitors who would try to get into this market would have to work at it for awhile IMHO

        Sentiment: Buy

      • What "other" DNA compaines???
        LOL!
        You don't even known what you've invested in...
        Appears you don't know the market either.
        Oh well...
        Suggestion - read, research, or not...your money not mine
        You happened to get lucky with finding APDN.
        APDN "is" the only DNA company.
        Good for us.
        The only thing we don't know is the Value of each contract in $$$
        Next earnings report may be in December?
        Soon see if the Google posting is correct about December...
        :)
