Test Description

Newborn Screening is a process where infants are screened shortly after birth for a list of conditions that are treatable, but are often not seen at birth. Newborn screening can prevent hundreds of thousands of instances of physical and mental disability and even death.Early detection of these conditions through Newborn Screening allows timely diagnosis and intervention making it possible to help give affected babies a healthy start to life.

Indications for Testing

An NBS test looks for developmental, genetic, and metabolic disorders in the newborn and allows timely management of the condition before the development or progression of the symptoms/disorder.

Screening is not a confirmatory diagnosis and requires further investigations which can be done by genetic testing.

Condition Description

When a baby is between 2 and 28 days old, a few drops of blood are collected from the baby’s heel. Blood collection on a filter paper by a heel prick is the standard procedure of screening newborns in most countries. This blood spots card is then sent to the Revvity Omics laboratory for further processing. The results of this screening test are then shared with your physician.
