SYNTap Biomarker Test

The SYNTap Test helps doctors diagnose Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and underlying synucleinopathy in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

What's the SYNTap Test?

This breakthrough test uses cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples to track misfolded Synuclein, the biomarker driving certain brain diseases.

What’s SYNTap Test Used For?

I. Diagnosing LBD

LBD is a recently discovered brain disease, which sadly until now has only been diagnostically confirmed at autopsy. So this is a game-changing test for LBD diagnosis.

Who should take this test?

  1. People who show both cognitive and motor symptoms.
  2. People at risk from genetics or family history and showing signs that their doctors believe might represent the early stages of the disease.

II. Diagnosing Parkinson’s:

SYNTap Test – CSF aids physicians in the diagnosis of PD. The lab test identifies misfolded Synuclein, a biomarker driving the disease.

Who should take this test?

  1. People who show early signs of a motor disorder want to know with certainty whether they have progressive Parkinson’s disease.
  2. People at risk of Parkinson’s due to family history, genetic, previous head trauma, and what their doctors believe might represent early stages of Parkinson’s.

III. Identifying Synucleinopathy in Alzheimer’s 

The SYNTap Test helps physicians identify synucleinopathy in Alzheimer’s patient evaluation.

Research shows up to 40% of Alzheimer’s patients have underlying synucleinopathy, which may affect the course of disease progression.

Particularly, people showing early Alzheimer’s-like symptoms are often placed in a fuzzy gray zone of precarious uncertainty.

“Do I have Alzheimer’s or Lewy Body Dementia, or something else?” 

This diagnostic quagmire causes emotional, financial, and physical stress.

Did you know on average, someone suspecting Alzheimer’s endures 6 to 18-months of various tests costing about $45,000. And a lot of sleepless nights.

Who should take this test?

    1. People who show early signs of Alzheimer’s. 
    2. People whose doctors believe they may have Alzheimer’s.

What do SYNTap Test results mean?

Positive SYNTap Test 

This means misfolded Synuclein aggregates are detected in the sample. Therefore, it accurately identifies the presence of Lewy Bodies. 

Negative SYNTap Test

A negative SYNTap Test rules out the presence of misfolded Synuclein.

It’s worth noting that people with symptoms can get a negative SYNTap Test result. This is because many brain diseases share similar symptoms.

Accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s vs. LBD is critical since both conditions show similar symptoms in the early stages.
