ScreenPlus Background


Newborn screening (NBS) has been an important part of preventable health care since the 1960’s. NBS is a simple blood test taken from the heels of babies shortly after birth to identify certain rare disorders that can have serious health risks. Because many of these disorders have few or no symptoms at birth, NBS lets us diagnose and treat affected babies as early as possible, with the hope of letting them live as long and normal of a life as possible.
