Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test – DNA Labs UAE

Welcome to DNA Labs UAE, a leading genetic lab in the United Arab Emirates. We offer a comprehensive range of tests, including the Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test. This test is designed to detect certain genetic, metabolic, and hormonal disorders in newborn babies.

Test Details

The Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test is a comprehensive screening test performed on newborn babies to detect certain genetic, metabolic, and hormonal disorders. It includes testing for eight different conditions:

  1. Phenylketonuria (PKU): This is a genetic disorder in which the body cannot break down an amino acid called phenylalanine, leading to a buildup of this substance in the blood.
  2. Congenital Hypothyroidism: This condition occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, which is important for growth and development.
  3. Galactosemia: This is a metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to break down a sugar called galactose, leading to a buildup of this substance in the blood.
  4. Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD): This is a metabolic disorder in which the body is unable to break down certain amino acids, leading to a buildup of these substances in the blood and urine.
  5. Homocystinuria: This is a genetic disorder in which the body cannot break down an amino acid called homocysteine, leading to a buildup of this substance in the blood.
  6. Biotinidase Deficiency: This is a genetic disorder in which the body cannot break down a vitamin called biotin, leading to a deficiency of this vitamin.
  7. Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH): This is a hormonal disorder in which the adrenal glands do not produce enough cortisol and aldosterone, leading to an imbalance of hormones in the body.
  8. Sickle Cell Disease: This is a genetic disorder in which the red blood cells are abnormally shaped, leading to a decreased ability to carry oxygen and causing various health problems.

The Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test is typically performed within the first few days of a baby’s life and involves a blood sample taken from a heel prick. Early detection of these disorders allows for prompt treatment and management, which can prevent or minimize the long-term complications associated with these conditions.

Test Cost and Sample Requirements

The cost of the Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test is AED 560.0. To perform the test, we require a sample of 1 drop of heel prick blood on 3 spots of filter paper. The filter paper is available from LPL. The sample must be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen. Clinical details and drug history must accompany the sample to ensure accurate analysis and interpretation of the results.

Report Delivery

The sample for the Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test should be submitted on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays by 9 am. The report will be delivered the next day.

Method and Test Type

The Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test is performed using the Fluoroimmunoassay and Capillary Electrophoresis methods. This ensures accurate and reliable results for the detection of inborn errors of metabolism.

Referring Doctors

The Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test can be ordered by Pediatricians, Physicians, and Gynecologists. We work closely with healthcare professionals to provide the best care for newborns and their families.

Pre Test Information

Clinical details and drug history must accompany the sample to ensure accurate analysis and interpretation of the results. This information is crucial for a comprehensive understanding of the baby’s health and to guide further medical interventions if necessary.

Conclusion

The Newborn Screening Panel 8 Test offered by DNA Labs UAE is a vital tool for early detection and management of genetic, metabolic, and hormonal disorders in newborn babies. By identifying these conditions early on, we can provide timely interventions and treatments, minimizing the long-term complications associated with these disorders. Trust DNA Labs UAE for accurate and reliable newborn screening tests.
