What Is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) refers to a cognitive illness that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking, reasoning, and behavioral abilities. It is one of the many types of Dementia.


DISCERN™ helps a healthcare provider determine whether you have AD or another form of Dementia.

A certified healthcare provider will collect a small skin sample from your forearm using a safe and minimally-invasive skin punch.

If you are experiencing a slow decline in memory, thinking, reasoning, and behavior, you should talk to your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider can determine whether the DISCERN™ test is right for you.

What Happens After The Test Is Completed?

Your test sample will be sent to our laboratory, where our scientists will incubate and grow the sample to analyze it for the presence of DISCERN™ biomarkers.

When Do I Get The Results?

A lab report with the test results will be sent to your healthcare provider when the test is complete. Depending upon how your skin cells grow, your healthcare provider should expect a report within 6-12 weeks.

The DISCERN™ test is new and is not currently covered by private or public insurance. As we work to establish reimbursement for the DISCERN™ test, patients are responsible for paying for the test, but payment plans are available.
