‘Intruder Spray’: Traceable Synthetic DNA Mist

Posted: May 12, 2015 in Tech

The “intruder spray,” as it is nicknamed, contains “a unique DNA code which can be used to uniquely mark and trace both items of property and criminals,” according to its manufacturer, SelectaDNA.

The spray’s US distributor, Johan Larsen, told the Knoxville News-Sentinel that the product is already in use in Australia and Europe.

The newspaper’s report said the spray is “traceable for weeks,” and can only be viewed “with a glow under ultraviolet light.”

If not identified by ultraviolet light, a suspect’s clothing, for example, could be tested to see if the spray’s owner-specific synthetic DNA is a match.

“SelectaDNA property markers contain thousands of microdots which allow police to identify property at the scene in a matter of seconds,” acceding to the company’s website.
