Early Detection = Prevention

The early detection test is working with a lateral-flow based technology similar to a pregnancy test. The result is qualitative, providing either “positive” or “negative” as answers.

Two drops of blood is needed from the fingertip. The test uses the established cut-off reference range of proinsulin to differentiate physiological results from pathological results.

In case of a positive result, the patient is advised to visit their doctor to seek recommendations for measures to prevent or delay disease manifestation (e.g. lifestyle recommendations) or to undergo further diagnostic procedures to confirm the disease stage (e.g. oral glucose challenge test).
