U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, today recognized InnoGenomics Technologies of New Orleans, La. as part of this year’s National Small Business Week, and will be submitting it into the Congressional Record.

“As we close out National Small Business Week, I am proud to recognize Dr. Sudhir Sinha and the InnoGenomics team for their important research into DNA testing and cancer detection and prevention,” said Vitter. “The InnoGenomics scientists working to ‘solve crimes and save lives’ with their patented technology and research are spearheading a new era of biotechnological achievements, and it’s all happening in the heart of Louisiana.”

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation, Dr. Sudhir Sinha, President and CEO of InnoGenomics, had the idea to develop a new DNA marker system to aid in identifying victims of natural disasters. Their patented technology enables forensic scientists the ability to test the most challenging DNA submissions that solves crimes and saves lives. Additionally, the InnoGenomics Technologies team is currently developing a new method to detect and monitor cancer – a liquid biopsy that can be administered through a minimally invasive blood test.

SBC Chairman Vitter is continuing the tradition of recognizing local small businesses.
