PROTEA BIOPHARMA LAUNCHES THE FIRST BEDSIDE TEST FOR MEASURING ABNORMAL METABOLITES IN CFS-ME : THE NEUROTOXIC METABOLITE TEST


Assays previously developed by PROTEA biopharma are commercialized on a fee-per-service basis by R.E.D Laboratories (www.redlabs.com). The Neurotoxic Metabolite Test is a patented, simple urine test based on our most recent research achievements. This new assay will be available as point-of-care test; it will be commercialized first as a research test, through this website, and then through pharmacies or health-care centers. This will allow self-testing of the patients and easy follow-up on therapy.

The test will be commercialized at a price of 45€ (VAT and shipping are included). For ordering, please go to the Ordering Test section. To get more information, please view our Frequently Asked Questions section.
