Identity Sciences, LLC (IDS) has received Georgia’s Excellence in Innovation Award from Lt. Governor Casey Cagle. Created by the Lt. Governor, the award recognizes outstanding innovative achievements by Georgia’s entrepreneurs. The Lieutenant Governor’s Excellence in Innovation Award recognizes individuals, companies, nonprofits and organizations that continually pioneer products, services and ways of doing things that ultimately create a better tomorrow for Georgia.

IDS, headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia, was formed to discover, develop and market products and systems that help increase security and law enforcement both globally and domestically for governments and private sector companies. IDS has demonstrated its ability to think outside the box,” said Lt. Governor Cagle. “Gene Venesky and his team are a great example of Georgia’s entrepreneurial spirit, demonstrating remarkable vision and resulting in significant success. IDS’ products are revolutionary in fighting crime, not only in the United States, but worldwide. This technology will sweep the entire world.”

IDS was founded in 2006 and has focused primarily on developing a unique, cutting-edge identification process, the AbP∙ID® Human Identification System. The basic science on which it is based, antibody profiling, was developed at the Idaho National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy facility. IDS licensed the technology and took it from a laboratory concept to the automated high tech product it is today. The initial primary application was as a forensic tool to identify suspects at a crime scene, but as the technology evolved, the possibilities for the product increased ten-fold.

The AbP∙ID Human Identification System, which consists of four individual products, has applications not only in forensics and crime scene investigations, but in healthcare, safety, the military and anti-poverty programs, as well as security for both the public and private sectors. It is the only human identification tool with the ability to differentiate identical twins, therefore making it the only system capable of serving as the basis for a national identification card/program.

The IDS technology has previously received an R&D 100 Award issued by R&D Magazine, which is considered to be the most prestigious honor in Applied Research and is often called the “Oscars of Innovation.” The cutting-edge technology also received the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer which recognizes laboratory employees and their partners for outstanding work in transferring federally developed technology to the marketplace.

“IDS is honored to receive this coveted award from Lt. Governor Cagle," said Gene Venesky, President and CEO of IDS. “Although our products provide innovative security solutions to government agencies and private sector businesses across the globe, the Company is honored to be headquartered in Georgia, where entrepreneurial ventures are recognized and encouraged. IDS looks forward to offering unique ongoing solutions to the ever increasing security challenges facing the global community.”
