Eiira Genetics is our first service launched to consumers
A genetic tests for hereditary cancer to understand your inherited cancer risk, and take action for prevention or early detection.
The story of the name Eiira
It comes from Eir; dated back to the 13th century in Norse mythology, it was the name for the goddess of the healing art. Eiira is a modern goddess to help people to be healthier and live longer.
We have witnessed people among friends and families pass away prematurely because of inherited diseases. Those death are preventable!
Today, there is no easy access for people like you and me to be tested for any inherited risks and be given measures to counter them.
In 2020, Arkus, in collaboration with genetic experts from Karolinska, decided to take matters into our own hands and to create access for people to know their genes and provide tools to make the best out of their genes.
Thanks to the support from Vinnova, ALMI and Sting incubator, and the team’s hard work, we have launched the first products for hereditary cancer prevention. This is the first step in our audacious journey to help people live healthier and longer regardless of who and where.
