Free Metabolic New Born Screening at Baby Company Grand Baby Fair Year 6

By 4:45:00 PM , ,


The Newborn Metabolic Screening screens for rare but potentially serious disorders such as phenylketonuria (PKU), cystic fibrosis, and congenital hypothyroidism according to National Screening Unit.

Metabolic disorders are not easily detected without screening because many of the symptoms are non-specific and look like other more common conditions. Some of the disorders do not show any symptoms at all until after the damage has occurred.  Many of these metabolic disorders (also known as inborn errors of metabolism) can cause developmental issues and lifelong complications such as mental retardation, physical disability and in some instances, death if it left untreated. Screening your newborn for metabolic disorders will help facilitate early intervention and prevent long term detrimental effects to your baby’s health.

What is the difference of Metabolic Screening to other Newborn Screening test?

There are three main differences:
1) Metascreen can detect more than 100 metabolic disorders, much more than any other available newborn screening test;
2) Metascreen uses your newborn’s urine specimen, which means the collection process is non-invasive and painless; and
3) We use a GC/MS screening platform and multiple analytes from more than one biochemical (metabolic) pathway to identify a single metabolic disorder, making Metascreen highly accurate and reliable.

  5. This sounds great! It is indeed better to catch disorders early on to treat them properly. I like also that it's noninvasive because it's so heartbreaking to stick a needle to a newborn.
