Applied DNA to launch security print platform solution Videojet 1860M CIJ printer at INTERPHEX 2018

Published 11 April 2018

Applied DNA Sciences plans to launch its security print platform solution featuring the Videojet 1860M continuous inkjet (CIJ) printer at the upcoming INTERPHEX 2018 to be held from 17-19 April at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Applied DNA government and military programs vice president Janice Meraglia said: “This comprehensive supply chain certification solution allows manufacturers and brands to implement a secure tag, test and track capability into existing production lines quickly.

“We are looking forward to demonstrating this comprehensive supply chain certification solution at INTERPHEX to pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies along with our partner, Videojet.”

Applied DNA’s security platform allows companies to tag, test and track a unique molecular tag applied to products or packaging during the manufacturing process. It provides a supply chain management tool to proactively track items globally, adding another level of protection against counterfeits and diversion, transforming the inkjet code into a comprehensive supply chain certification solution. The platform compliments a range of consumer, corporate and government initiatives:

Communication of covert code information directly from customer to brand owner

Serialization being implemented by global pharmaceutical companies

Authentication for counterfeit avoidance under review by government agencies

SigNature molecular ink, delivered with a Videojet 1860M printer, is created with the addition of a unique, secure molecular tag and is qualified in both black (V4221M) and invisible (V4259M) which can fluoresce blue under UV.

The molecular tags facilitate traceability of products and packaging, enabling such claims as the forensic certification of origin, authenticity, provenance, quality, ethics, integrity, or sustainability.

The print platform features black and clear inks to meet various application needs associated with supply chain management and brand protection. In addition to pharmaceuticals, biopharma and medical devices, the solution crosses other industries such as food and beverage, aero defense/industrial parts and others.

Key Features:

Continuous Inkjet (CIJ):

High-speed, non-contact printing

Variable alphanumeric coding capabilities


Black CIJ ink optimized for industrial applications


Invisible CIJ ink that fluoresces blue under ultraviolet light, ideal for covert applications

Videojet 1860M Printer:

Provides advanced warning of clogging and extra high tension (EHT) trips

SIMPLICiTY interface greatly reduces operator interactions

Includes industry-first predictive ink build-up sensor and innovative nozzle system

Optional VideojetConnect Remote Service minimizes the need for on-site service calls
