ALZHEIMER’S

SYNTap™ Biomarker Test helps differentiate dementia types in Alzheimer’s patients.

Using cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), this test precisely identifies the presence of misfolded Synuclein, even in the early stages prior to symptoms.

Studies show up to 50% of Alzheimer’s patients have misfolded Synuclein in their brains, which may affect the course of the disease and how the patients respond to certain drug treatments.

LBD

SYNTap Biomarker Test accurately diagnoses Lewy Body Dementia (LBD).

By tracking misfolded Synuclein, this essential test helps doctors accurately diagnose people showing both cognitive and motor symptoms initially.

LBD is a recently discovered brain disease, which sadly until now has only been definitively diagnosed by autopsy. This test is a game-changer.

PARKINSON’S

SYNTap Biomarker Test helps doctors diagnose Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

Doctors have long sought conclusive confirmation when they suspect PD. This biomarker test precisely detects misfolded Synuclein, a biomarker driving PD’s progression.

Our ability to track this biomarker accurately – at early stages – empowers research to race to cures.
