This collaboration is aimed at harnessing AI technology for the advancement of precision medicine.
This investment will focus on developing AI-driven solutions for genetic analysis tailored to Japanese consumers.

Mr. Bui Quang Huy, CEO of Rikkei Japan, expressed that the AI technology developed through the partnership with Genetica will address critical health issues by offering personalized insights to prevent diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart ailments.

Genetica, specializing in AI-based genetic analysis, is a part of Gene Friend Way, headquartered in San Francisco (USA), and advised by a team of expert scientists. Their genetic analysis chip, reputed for its 99% accuracy, is endorsed by Illumina, a world-renowned genomics organization.
Mr. Huy highlighted, “This strategic investment partnership is poised to boost the technological prowess of both Rikkeisoft and Rikkei Japan, diversifying our offerings with practical solutions for the public and the society at large.”
The $10 million investment is expected by both companies to herald a new era in precision medicine, providing patients and caregivers with state-of-the-art, optimal treatment modalities.
