SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–iGenomeDx Inc., the molecular diagnostic laboratory that works to use DNA to match individuals to specific medications, won this year’s San Antonio District SBA Minority-Owned Small Business of the Year. The San Antonio District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Texas South-West Small Business Development Center (SBDC) announced the award earlier this spring and honored Small Business Week winners early in May.

iGenomeDx was established in 2016 by Dr. Niti Vanee and Dr. Pramod Mishra having a research background in Genomics and Microbiology and Immunology respectively with a goal to serve the community using their scientific training and expertise.

iGenomeDx offers DNA-based pharmacogenomic tests to guide physicians to the most effective medication among the choices available based on an individual’s genetic makeup, effectively personalizing medicine.
