As the nation's largest provider of newborn screening services, PerkinElmer Genetics is dedicated to improving the lives of children and their families by offering early detection of metabolic and other inherited disorders.
Metabolic and other inherited disorders are rare, but can be harmful, even deadly, when undetected.
Every state in the U.S. currently manages a program to screen newborns for inherited disorders. However, some states include only a handful of disorders in its program, leaving thousands of newborns unscreened for any number of potentially manageable disorders every year.
PerkinElmer Genetics offers StepOne®, a screening service that determines a baby’s risk for more than 50 inherited disorders through an easily collected blood spot sample.
