Newborn Screening Test
Most comprehensive, once in a life time test for your child
Testing every newborn for harmful or potentially fatal disorders that aren't otherwise apparent at birth.
With a GeniqueNbS (Genique Newborn Screening) test, doctors can tell whether newborns have certain conditions that eventually could cause problems. Although these conditions are rare and most babies are given a clean bill of health, early diagnosis and proper treatment sometimes can make the difference between lifelong impairment and healthy development.
Because the diseases in question are rare, the probability of your child actually being affected by one of them is rather small. However, consider this: on average, for every year, its find more than 9,000 babies to have developed severe diseases across India.
Newborn screening can prevent and permit your child to move forward to a normal healthy childhood with no worries.
The test will be done by pricking your baby’s heel and putting a few drops of blood on a special filter paper.
The filter paper is allowed to dry and is then sent to the laboratory for further procedure.
The heel prick may be uncomfortable and your baby may cry, but it’s all over very quickly. You can help by making sure that your baby is warm and comfortable and by being ready to feed and cuddle your baby.
