One Test. One Answer.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can be difficult to diagnose. Symptoms are non-specific and mimic other diseases. This can result in multiple physician visits, multiple tests and months or years for clinical evidence to be gathered before your doctor can reach a definitive diagnosis. 

Blood-based technologies that are capable of identifying multiple sclerosis have not previously been available – but computational advances and increased understanding of RNA biology now make this possible. 

NOTE: Initially, the IsolateMS test will not be available in the following states: California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and New York. IQuity will update this list as these licenses are obtained. 

The Earlier, the Better

Early diagnosis is a challenge, but it is generally accepted that diagnosing and treating patients as early as possible provides greater ability to:

  • Slow disease progression
  • Improve long-term outcomes

Delay is Risk

Studies show that a delay in diagnosis increases the severity of disability over time and that earlier treatment has multiple benefits:

  • Disease progression/severity can often be slowed
  • Relapses or flare-ups tend to be less frequent

Life Disruption

Chronic illnesses are costly for patients and their families emotionally, physically and financially leading to high direct and indirect costs:

  • Decreased overall quality of life/ daily functioning
  • Decreased productivity at work

What to Expect

When your provider orders this test for you, the process is easy. Your provider will order the test when you check out from the clinic. A small blood sample is needed to begin the process and will be drawn at your provider’s office or in another facility designated by your provider. All blood samples are analyzed at IQuity's CLIA-certified laboratory and results are sent to your provider within 7 days. Your provider will then review your results with you.

My Story

I was diagnosed with MS when I was in my early 20s. And, I guess my story isn’t much different from others who experience weird symptoms and then seek to find out what is going on with their bodies: seeing too many doctors; having too many tests; and way too much waiting and not knowing what’s going on. After almost a year of worry, my neurologist figured it out – I had MS.

I finally knew what was wrong and was able to start treatment that’s allowed me to get back to living my normal busy life.

I just learned about a new test, IsolateMS. Now doctors have a tool that can potentially significantly shorten the time it takes to diagnose their patients. That would have made such a difference for me! A year is a long time.
