Each year we examine the blood values of more than 80 000 newborns in our laboratory.

 

Newborn Screening

Newborn screening for various congenital metabolic diseases has already existed in Switzerland for 50 years.

If these diseases are left untreated, serious organ damage and developmental disorders will occur in the majority of cases. The sooner diseases and/or anomalies are detected, the sooner specific treatment can be started.
