Raising Awareness For Breast Cancer With The Power Of Tears

Namida Lab

A local biotech company is making world news with the launch of Auria, an at-home breast health assessment test that uses tears as a non-invasive source for the early detection of breast abnormalities. 

  • Cheers to last year: Last October, Namida Lab partnered with breweries across NWA for Tears on Tap to supply tear samples to further research & development for Auria. Thanks to community support, Auria is now available!
  • Happy tears: Early breast cancer detection can make all the difference, and Namida Lab, with help of the NWA community, has something to be proud of this Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
