DetectaDye – DNA Fuel Marking

DetectaDye is the next generation in fuel theft prevention, DetectaDye has a unique DNA fuel fingerprint which allows full traceability and identification. DetectaDye is miscible in all fuels including Crude Oil. DetectaDye creates a unparalleled security level within fuels. DetectaDye allows the use of multiple codes to ensure supply chain integrity with the ability to maintain contractor, employee and supplier compliance.

Field testing allows for the detection and identification of unauthorised use of the fuel with the ability to identify the supply chain failure.

DetectaDye is based on the design, production, application, extraction and identification of unique DNA molecules. DetectaDye involves four components with shorthand notations A, T, C and G. DetectaDye comprises of two locked sequence codes, which must be known before the full molecular code can be extracted and identified. The identification technology known as real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) is employed, allowing the amplification, quantitative determination and sequence identification of the DNA molecules in a single assay. This amplification procedure allows very low concentrations of DNA to be accurately detectable and identifiable.



  • Is totally secure and unable to be counterfeited
  • Offers complete fuel auditability
  • Creates a Unique Forensic Fuel Fingerprint
  • Unlimited batches and codes available
  • DetectaDye uses cutting edge DNA technology in the identification of fuels. This provides a unparalleled level of fuel security
  • DetectaDye is resistant to adulteration, and is detectable, and identifiable after mass dilution.
  • Can be used in all fuels including Crude Oil

DetectaDye creates a secure ring fence around your fuel supply chain. It supports many applications from Fiscal fuel programs ensuring that duties are payable and military fuel stocks are at the correct destination. This also supports medium to large companies who will have the ability to deter internal concerns and also allow contractor compliance. Multiple codes can be added to the fuels allowing the individual identities to be tested such as supplier , Client and Destination. Fuel supply ships can also be marked ensuring that the right cargo is at the right place.
