We drive innovation

SphingoTec GmbH develops and markets innovative in vitro diagnostic IVD tests for novel and proprietary biomarkers for the diagnosis, prediction and monitoring of acute medical conditions, such as acute heart failure, circulatory shock, and acute kidney injury in order to support patient management and provide guidance for treatment strategies. In addition, we have developed a portfolio of novel biomarkers, which predict the risks of obesity, breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The approach we take is entirely hypothesis-driven and builds on a deep understanding of disease biology.
