CSF Biomarker Analysis

Cerebrospinal fluid metabolites to explore mechanisms behind neurodegenerative diseases.

An emerging platform

Nightingale’s cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarker analysis enables discovery of biomarkers related to disease onset and prognosis in neurodegenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and dementia. The platform allows simultaneous quantification of around 30 metabolites from different metabolic pathways, including energy metabolism, fluid balance and carbohydrates.

Take a look at our CSF biomarkers
Advancing research with NMR technology

28 biomarkers from a single sample

The biomarkers come as a package and we provide all measurements listed in the CSF panel for both sample volumes—150µl and 500µl. Results are provided in molar concentration units and are therefore ready-to-use.

Scalable for sample sets of all sizes

High-throughput technology allows analysis at competitive pricing. The cost is based on the size and volume of the sample sets. The higher the number of samples, the lower the cost of analysis per sample.

Complementing methods for novel insights

Combining our CSF and blood biomarker analysis opens up an opportunity to uncover novel molecular insights that influence neurodegenerative diseases. For instance, it can help understand how the subtle leakage of the blood-brain barrier influences the development of these diseases.
