Sample collection & Transportation: Only a drop of blood is needed as the sample. A well trained laboratory personnel will collect baby's sample on a specialized filter paper. The sample will be processed carefully and sent to our lab for analysis.
Screening: The baby sample is screened using the most efficient technologies – Tandem Mass Spectrometry(TMS) and ELISA. The samples are tested for over 50 genetic and metabolic conditions.
Test Report: The results are made available within 48 hours for TMS & 5 days for BIO6.
Consultation: Only a small percentage of babies are screened positive. In that case you may be asked for a repeat sample for double confirmation.
If tested positive for Newborn Screening, it is recommended to visit a Metabolic specialist for further testing or advice.
