Neonatal (Newborn) Screening, Blood Spot


Neonatal screening is a simple test usually carried out during the first week of a baby’s life. The purpose of the test is to detect the presence of commonly inherited diseases at an early enough stage to avoid medical complications such as delayed development, mental retardation and in severe cases even death. The current Neonatal screening panel includes 54 disorders: Congenital Hypothyroidism (TSH), Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (17-OHP), Galactosemia, G6PD deficiency, Cystic Fibrosis, Hemoglobinopathies, Biotinidase Deficiency, Amino acid disorders (including PKU), Fatty acid disorders and Organic acid disorders.


The results are presented in report form, with quantitative results giving a clear indication as to the state of the baby’s health at the time of the test.
