Accelerating Novel Diagnostic Solutions for Alzheimer’s Disease
The ALZpath difference
ALZpath provides diagnostic tools and expertise in Alzheimer’s disease. We believe that with timely and accurate diagnosis, targeted treatments, and support it is possible to improve outcomes for patients and those living with risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
A timely and accessible diagnosis
Our novel and proprietary diagnostic blood test is the only commercially available test for phosphorylated tau 217 (pTau217). We offer an approach to diagnosis that is:
- Less invasive
pTau217 can be measured in blood to gain valuable information about what is occurring in the brain. This powerful diagnostic tool can identify key markers of Alzheimer’s disease in the brain prior to the onset of cognitive symptoms.

ALZpath pTau217 Measured in Dried Blood Spots as Effective Method for Remote Settings
January 29, 2024
In a recent study published in Alzheimer’s & Dementia, researchers present groundbreaking findings on the precision of pTau217 biomarker measurements in dried blood spots. This important study highlights the potential to extend ALZpath pTau217 diagnostic capabilities to remote settings, offering simplified sampling conditions and storage logistics using dried blood spots.
New Study in JAMA Affirms High Diagnostic Accuracy of ALZpath’s pTau217 Test
January 22, 2024
The ALZpath pTau217 assay has been featured in a crucial evaluation of biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease pathology published today in JAMA Neurology. Dr. Ashton and colleagues demonstrated that our ALZpath pTau217 assay can accurately identify and longitudinally monitor Alzheimer’s disease pathology, including in preclinical stages, comparable to CSF and PET tests. Tools like the ALZpath pTau217 test will be vital to screening and treating patients at scale, optimizing outcomes, and reducing long-term costs.
