New-born screening is essential for early detection, diagnosis and management as to prevent disability and death of the child. It is performed soon after the birth of the baby and used for the detection of genetic, developmental and metabolic disorders in new-born babies. Various tests such as dry blood spot test, hearing screening test and critical congenital heart disease tests are performed in new-born screening. These tests are done to screen various conditions such as sickle cell disease, cystic fibrosis, new born hearing loss, critical congenital heart disease, congenital hypothyroidism, maple syrup urine disease and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Blood test screening is done by taking few drops of blood from baby’s heel for laboratory analysis when baby is 24 to 48 hours old.
