Exheus, spin-off of Sant Pau, completes a capital increase and prepares for international market entry

Exheus, a genetics and data science company specializing in RNA analysis, spin-off of the Research Institute of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau – IIB Sant Pau, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech (UPC), Summit SL and Mobile World Capital Barcelona’s innovation program, The Collider, received a private capital injection of 650,000 euros.

In parallel, in addition to these fundings, which add up to a total of 900,000 euros, Exheus has also received another grant of 50,000 euros from EIT Health, the largest European body for health innovation, whose mission is to accelerate entrepreneurship and innovation, providing new opportunities and resources for the benefit of all citizens.

The injection of all this capital will be used to consolidate the following axes: start the international expansion of the business in European markets; create a commercial structure that allows access to the health system of these countries; and work on regularizing the legal requirements necessary for the company to operate internationally. Likewise, it plans to digitize the product following a B2B approach so that, with the development of a digital, automated and interactive platform, doctors and practitioners can directly access the patient’s results and, with this, give an assessment of the test of RNA.

“The effort invested these two years has helped us to obtain the most advanced health report in the world. This increase in capital will allow us to continue building the future of Exheus and promote the consolidation of personalized medicine, both in Spain and in other European markets, always focusing on improving the lives of patients”, says Teresa Tarragó, CEO of Exeus

A unique RNA test in the world

Exheus was born as a spin-off of the Complex Diseases Genomics Research Group of the Sant Pau Hospital Research Institute – IIB Sant Pau, the Biomedical Engineering Research Center (CREB) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech (UPC), Summit SL and Mobile World Capital Barcelona’s innovation program, The Collider, which makes technological transfer between science, the market and society possible.

The company analyzes the expression of all the genes in the human body present in the blood transcriptome to detect and correct abnormalities that affect the individual’s health. Today, Exheus is positioned as the most sophisticated commercial RNA analysis technology in the world.

Thanks to this analysis, the expression levels of all the genes in the genome are monitored, making it possible for the health professional to offer personalized recommendations and optimize the intervention for their patients in a personalized way.
