LEXINGTON, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Quanterix Corporation, a leader in high definition diagnostics, delivering ultrasensitive single molecule measurement for the benefit of human health, today announced that they will be attending Neuroscience 2013 on November 9 – 13, 2013 in San Diego, CA. Jeffrey Randall, Ph.D., Principal Scientist at Quanterix, will deliver a poster presentation on a pilot study using its Single Molecule Array (Simoa) technology that looks at blood biomarkers for sports-related brain injury in collaboration with the Swedish Hockey League.
Poster Session Details:
Plasma Tau Levels in Concussed Hockey Players
Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. PT
San Diego Convention Center, Halls B-H
Convenient biomarker assessment of mild to severe sports-related traumatic brain injury represents a desirable goal as an adjunct for assessing the severity of injury and fitness to return to play. Methods for measuring the brain protein tau in serum and plasma have, until recently, been unavailable. Now, using Quanterix’s highly sensitive Simoa measurement of peripheral total tau, Jeffrey Randall, Ph.D. will share insights on the plasma total tau levels in professional hockey players who had suffered a sports-related concussion in a pilot study. Randall will also share post-concussion plasma tau levels that were followed over the course of approximately six days, and how they compared with tau levels in a cohort of hockey players prior to the start of the hockey season.
