Newborn screening is a set of tests that check newborn babies for a variety of conditions. Most of these conditions can't be seen at birth but can be tested and can be treated if found early. Early detection is key to ensuring your baby’s health.
Like in the picture above, small samples of blood are collected from the baby when the newborn is a day or two old. Providers send these samples to us so we can check for various disorders.
