The eye as a window to the brain

The retina at the back of the eye is a developmental extension of the brain made of neural tissue that mimics Alzheimer's pathology.
Amyloid beta is a protein that accumulates in neural tissues of people with Alzheimer's disease.

Multicolour illumination

Amyloid beta is know to scatter light in a wavelength (colour) dependent manner.

Brain imaging is limited by the bony skull. In contrast, the retina can be directly imaged in far greater detail.

A novel retinal camera

Inspired from a technology used by NASA for remote imaging of the earth, we have built a new retinal camera that is capable of detecting Alzheimer’s disease with a single photograph of the eye.

Cloud based analytics

Our retinal camera is paired with with a proprietary algorithm in a cloud-based service.
Scan results are provided to the clinician in near real-time

An unmet clinical need

Neurologists want a definitive Alzheimer's disease diagnosis for their patients
Pharma companies developing new drugs need to recruit participants and then monitor treatment response during the trial
