Each DNA code used in the SelectaDNA products is completely unique so that every marking kit and spray canister we supply has its very own forensic signature.
SelectaDNA products contain real DNA but are referred to as “Synthetic” to differentiate it from Human DNA. SelectaDNA is simply a series of unique combinations of A (Adenine), C (Cytosine), G (Guanine) and T (Thymine). The synthetic DNA used in SelectaDNA is short-chain, making it far more robust than human DNA.

The details of the code are then recorded on the SelectaDNA Police and Insurance approved database so that a code found on an asset or person can be identified back to a specific owner or location.

The SelectaDNA code can be deciphered by a molecular genetic laboratory which has been supplied with a SelectaDNA reagent kit designed to detect and analyse SelectaDNA samples.

Recommended by Insurance Companies

Every year theft and burglaries costs UK industry millions of pounds. Security marking is a simple, low cost and highly effective theft deterrent. DNA marked property is of little interest to thieves as they know DNA links them to crimes they commit, and it is virtually impossible to sell on. In addition, if stolen, the property is easily identifiable giving a very good chance of recovery. SelectaDNA is ideal for use on any valuable asset or equipment, such as laptops, motor vehicles, motorcycles, machinery, tools, marine craft etc.

Many Insurance companies actively recommend Forensic Property Marking to their policyholders. Some Insurance companies even make it a condition of insurance cover and it also forms a part of many police and crime prevention initiatives.
