OUR LAB

The SG wet lab is located in the Louisiana Emerging Technology Center (LAETC). Opened in 2005, the LAETC operates under the umbrella of the LSU System Research and Technology Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to link the most promising breakthroughs from Louisiana’s university research with business leaders who can sell their ideas in a global marketplace.

The LAETC lays the groundwork for new companies involved in biotechnology, healthcare, environmental sciences and life sciences. Their laboratory houses 60,000 sq. ft. designed specifically for new companies with wet lab needs.

The SG lab features full sequence technology and equipment originally designed and used for the development of bio-similar protein based drugs. In 2009, clean rooms were built in the LAETC facility to meet regulatory requirements by an experienced and robust quality systems team. Our group of molecular biologists, scientists and educators at SG continue to perform research and development for current and future genetic tests.
