Screening newborns for endocrine, hemoglobin, CF, metabolic and SCID disorders
The Northwest Regional Newborn Screening Program screens newborns for endocrine, hemoglobin, cystic fibrosis, metabolic and severe combined immunodeficiency disorders - identifying infants who need immediate treatment to prevent developmental problems, mental deficiency or death. Identified infants are tracked to ensure they receive appropriate medical care.
Newborns routinely have specimens drawn for testing before discharge from the hospital. Specimens are drawn with a heel prick, and the blood spotted on a special filter paper collection kit which is sent to the laboratory for testing.
The Newborn Screening Program is part of the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory. View the complete OSPHL staff directory or search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
