Newborn Screening Awareness Month: Expanded Newborn Screening for dozens of metabolic diseases

September is Newborn Screening Awareness Month. Not only throughout this time we like to remind you, that you can easily test your baby for dozens of metabolic and genetic diseases with only one drop of blood.

Since decades, the early detection of various inborn errors of metabolism such as phenylketonuria (or known as PKU) and many other diseases soon after birth can help to prevent serious problems, such as brain damage, organ damage or even death.

 

Health first: with supplemental tests in addition to public screening you gain certainty about your baby´s health status. By collecting a drop of blood on the Dried Blood Spot card from the baby´s heel you get all the vital information you need at the time it matters.
