FibroTx TAP based services

FibroTx has developed the Transdermal Analysis Patch (TAP) as a highly sensitive multi-analyte research tool for non-invasive biomarker measurements directly from skin. FibroTx TAP has been developed to identify patterns of skin biomarkers with diagnostic and/or prognostic value for skin care and clinical dermatology applications. TAP is a highly adjustable analysis tool to support scientific research or product development. Biomarkers for the custom-made TAP can be either chosen from the list below or suggested by the client. The layout and number of different biomarkers on TAP can be adjusted to meet specific needs of the client. Check the list of compatible/ incompatible biomarkers here

FibroTx offers the following biomarkers:
