Narrative

Screening includes testing for thirty mandated disorders: PKU, congenital hypothyroidism, biotinidase deficiency, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, galactosemia, hemoglobinopathies, homocystinuria, MSUD (Maple Syrup Urine Disease), congenital toxoplasmosis, and MCAD (medium-chain acyl Co-A dehydrogenase deficiency). In addition, two pilot studies are offered, one for SCID and the other for an additional 5 rare metabolic disorders. Parents choose whether or not they want their baby screened in the pilot studies. Experience has been that >99% of all babies are screened for all pilot conditions.
