Exheus is seeking capital to accelerate the commercialization of its mRNA test. The startup founded in Barcelona as a spin-off of the Institut d’Investigació Sant Pau has opened an $834,000 (€750,000) funding round, Pol Cervera, co-founder of Exheus, has confirmed.
The company specializes in mRNA testing and, with the funding received, intends to carry out a clinical trial aimed at obese patients to obtain CE marking, while strengthening the company’s B2B area. According to Cervera, with the capital from the round, Exheus will be able to activate this part of sales.
In fact, in June 2021, the company was forced to close the pre-sale period of its genetic tests through eCommerce, as it ran out of stock. During this process, the company turned over nearly $44,500 (€40,000).

Exheus bases its system on blood analysis to define the functioning of the user’s organism
The functioning of Exheus tests is based on blood analysis. These tests are able to sequence mRNA, detect biomarkers and define in a more individualized way the functioning of the user’s organism. With the data collected, the company divides its business strategy into two lines.
The first (Nutri Diet) is oriented towards nutrition and considers it a main pillar in health prevention, while the second (Exheus Blue Boost) focuses on the study of biomarkers focused on sports performance. A differential point of this test is that it evaluates the response of the user’s genes to the different physiological stimuli received by the body, such as physical exercise, rest, or nutrition.
Exheus has its origins as a spin-off of the Institut d’Investigació Sant Pau, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the company Summit and has a staff of twenty employees. In addition, the company has received an Enisa loan of 200,000 euros.
