CNS Biomarker Detection

The ability to detect neurological biomarkers at ultra-low levels, which have traditionally only been detectable in cerebrospinal fluid, will transform the way brain injuries and diseases are diagnosed.

Simoa assays can detect neurological biomarkers associated with brain injury and disease at much earlier stages to understand the long-term effects and disease pathology. Quanterix has a strategic focus in neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and multiple sclerosis (MS)  and is working with a rapidly growing network of academic researchers and pharmaceutical and biotech partners to drive advancements in head health research.

Simoa is considerably advancing the study of concussions because researchers are using it to detect biomarkers — proteins whose concentrations can be indicative of TBI — that were previously undetectable. The most well-known of these concussion biomarkers is a protein called tau.

Neurofilament light chains (NfL) are unique to neuronal cells, are shed to the CSF and are detectable at low concentrations in peripheral blood. Various diseases causing neuronal damage have resulted in elevated CSF concentrations. We explored the value of an ultrasensitive single-molecule array (…
