It all comes down to the odds of getting caught. Informing would-be thieves that the contents of your home are marked and registered with unique identifiable numbers will make them think twice about stealing your property. Adding to the deterrent, Trace™ provides detection equipment to the stores and shops where thieves try to unload their stolen property.
Trace™ pens are filled with thousands of tiny discs, about the size of a grain of sand, suspended in a phosphorous acrylic adhesive. Each tiny disc holds a unique personal identification number (PIN) linking your property to you within a global database. This database is accessed by Law Enforcement agents when they suspect that they have located stolen property.

For over a decade, DNA’s technology has been successfully used all over the world by the automotive industry to reduce theft rates for cars and trucks bound for chop-shops because micro-dot marked parts are identifiable even if they have been removed from the originally stolen vehicle.
