Research of UA biologists Newton Gomes and Francisco Coelho develops DNA codes for brands to combat counterfeiting

13/01/2015

Newton Gomes and Francisco Coelho, UA biologists have developed DNA codes for brands, an innovative technology that can be applied to any product to test the respective authenticity and help combat counterfeiting.

The codes can be applied on any surface and inserted into any product, being unique molecular tags cheap and easily to produce, and impossible to forge, unlike all the methods currently used by the market to identify and authenticate products. The technology is already prototyped and being promoted and valued by the University of Aveiro Technology Transfer Unit.

This project was highlighted in the program Exame Informática of SIC Notícias:
