Newborn Genetic Screening
What is Newborn genetic Screening?
  • Newborn screening is involves testing babies of all genetic disorders within the first week of their birth.
  • This prevents future health complications if the baby is born with any birth associated disorders. Early detection may prevent intellectual and physical disability.
  • Currently many state governments in the country have successfully implemented the practice of newborn scree
How is it done?
  • After the child is born blood is drawn from the heel and sent for analysis.
  • Only a few drops of blood is taken and no risks are associated with this procedure.
  • The blood is usually analyzed for any abnormalities or disorders.
What is the blood screened for?
  • Usually, the blood is screened for over 171 chromosomal, developmental, and physiological disorders and conditions.
  • It also includes amino acid disorders like Phenylketonuria, ADA, Hemoglobin conditions etc.
Why is it important?
  • Most inborn disorders can create serious health implications for the baby if left undiagnosed.
  • Identification of such disorder will prevent disease progression and preventive measures can save lives.
What if the test comes positive?

If the results for the screening turn positive it means that the baby might have an inherent disorder. A positive test result might imply the presence of a disorder or condition. However, a confirmatory test is necessary for disease prognosis.
