The Public Health Lab: Newborn Screening

0
17

The Newborn Screening Laboratory checks all Minnesotan babies shortly after birth for rare and serious, but treatable conditions.

Together with hospitals, laboratories, and medical professionals across the state, we screen newborns for more than 50 disorders that affect metabolism, hormones, the immune system, blood, breathing, digestion, hearing, or the heart.

Newborn screening in Minnesota consists of three simple tests: blood spot screening, hearing screening, and pulse oximetry screening.
