The Simplicity of the Smart Sticker™

Eliminates need for surgical biopsy and collects 1.5mg of stratum corneum tissue capturing signatures from epidermal keratinocytes, T cells, dendritic cells, melanocytes, etc.1,2,3

Simple Sample Transport

Sample doesn’t require fixation or refrigeration and preserves genomic and proteomic material from the skin for up to 10 days at room temperature & greater than a year when stored at -80°C.

Large Collection Area

Provides 19mm collection area for Lesional and Non-lesional samples.

Precision Biomarker Analysis

Includes Microbiome, Proteomic, NGS, and targeted DNA/RNA analysis.

Your translational medicine partner.

The Smart Sticker™ offers the opportunity to non-invasively identify biomarkers of disease and subgroups of disease, stratify patients based on genomic and proteomic profiles, enrich for responders in a population, and predict and track responses to therapeutic intervention.

We offer expert services including:

  • Biomarker Identification
  • New Target Identification
  • Patient Segmentation and Stratification
  • Bioinformatics Support

DermTech’s validated platform technology is appropriate for indications where skin is the target or a surrogate target organ and is being used to support drug discovery and development programs focused on cancers and inflammatory diseases in clinical research studies.
