Namida Lab is a local biotech company in Fayetteville conducting the “Tears on Tap Tour” throughout the month of October to further its cancer research.
- Samples: Namida Lab’s mission is to develop cancer diagnostics from the proteins in tears. Unlike blood samples, tears cannot be purchased, so they must be collected as needed - hence the tour.
- For research: The tour starts today at the first of 13 breweries in NWA and will run through Oct. 30. Namida Lab will cover the cost of one drink for individuals 21+ in exchange for a tear sample, which takes about 5 min.
