APDN Announces Receipt of Linea™ DNA Follow-On Order for Cancer Diagnostic Application

Posted on

STONY BROOK, N.Y. November 28, 2023 – Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) (“Applied DNA” or the “Company”), a leader in PCR-based DNA technologies, today announced the receipt of a follow-on order for Linea™ DNA valued above the mid-six figures. The order was placed under a long-standing supply agreement for the bulk manufacture of Linea DNA (non-therapeutic) for a global manufacturer of in vitro diagnostics (IVD). Under the terms of the repeat order, deliveries will commence during the fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2024, through the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2024.

“We continue to see strong demand from existing and new customers for IVD-related applications for Linea DNA. We believe our platform is optimal for the cost-effective and large-scale production of specialized DNA sequences used in IVD applications, and especially those that are too large for conventional oligonucleotide synthesis or require chemical modification. These are potentially high margin, recurring revenues with an opportunity for incremental revenues through new customer acquisition and as existing customers validate and expand Linea DNA use to other assays,” stated Dr. James A. Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA.

About Linea™ DNA
Linea™ DNA is an enzymatically produced linear DNA manufactured by the Company’s proprietary, large-scale polymerase chain reaction (“PCR”) based manufacturing platform, the Linea™ DNA platform. Linea DNA serves as an alternative to plasmid-based DNA that has been utilized in the manufacture of biotherapeutics for the past 40 years. Linea DNA is relevant to the next generation of nucleic acid-based therapies and diagnostics, including mRNA production, DNA vaccines, cell and gene therapies, as well as numerous veterinary medicine applications.

About Applied DNA Sciences
Applied DNA Sciences is a biotechnology company developing technologies to produce and detect deoxyribonucleic acid (“DNA”). Using the polymerase chain reaction (“PCR”) to enable both the production and detection of DNA, we operate in three primary business markets: (i) the enzymatic manufacture of synthetic DNA for use in the production of nucleic acid-based therapeutics and, through our recent acquisition of Spindle Biotech, Inc. (”Spindle”), the development and sale of a proprietary RNA polymerase (“RNAP”) for use in the production of mRNA therapeutics; (ii) the detection of DNA and RNA in molecular diagnostics and genetic testing services; and (iii) the manufacture and detection of DNA for industrial supply chain security services.
