Getting the Test

If you wish to have Expanded Newborn Screening, please make this known to your pediatrician and the nurse in charge of the nursery.

If your birthing hospital does not currently offer Expanded Newborn Screening, you can contact us to obtain a screening kit to bring to the hospital at the time of delivery.

After the Expanded Newborn Screening sample is drawn, it will need two to four hours to dry. It is important that you mail the newborn screening sample to the laboratory as soon as possible.

Please remember to include:
1. Date of birth of your baby.
2. Date the sample was taken.
3. Name and phone number of your pediatrician.
