Newborn Screening in DBS LC-MS/MS Analysis Kit

Newborn screening (NBS) is the blood test (frequently collecting blood specimen by heel prick) which newborn infants are screened just after nativity for a list of diseases that can evoke life threatening and/or intellectual disability unless uncovered and treated. Screening programs are run with the goal of preventing or diminishing genetic, metabolic, hormonal, and functional disorders through appropriate referral and early treatment.
