Molecular Testing Leads to Precision Medicine

“Neurodegenerative diseases affect individuals differently. For instance, ten patients can have ten different biomarker profiles. In addition, symptoms often overlap, leading to diagnostic challenges.

The SYNTap Biomarker CSF Test offers physicians a molecular tool to greatly improve diagnostic accuracy. Our goal is to develop precision medicine through biomarker testing.”

~ CEO, Russ Lebovitz, M.D./Ph.D
