Overview

These types represent 95% of CAH cases and in both, the 17α-OH progesterone (17OHP), a precursor of cortisol, is increased. The determination of 17OHP is thus a useful screening method for 95% of all CAH cases.

GSP Neonatal 17α-OH-progesterone assay

The GSP Neonatal 17α-OH-progesterone assay is intended for the quantitative determination of 17OHP in dried blood spot specimens as an aid in screening newborns for CAH.
