    Newborn screening is one of the most successful pre- ventative public health programs in the United States. State public health laboratories or their associated laboratories routinely screen dried blood spot (DBS) specimens collected from newborns shortly after birth for certain genetic, metabolic, or endocrine disorders. Effective screening, along with follow up, diagnosis,

    and intervention, helps prevent mental retardation and premature death caused by these inherited diseases. Healthcare professionals collect DBS specimens from more than 98% of all newborns in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) New- born Screening Quality Assurance Program (NSQAP) as- sists newborn screening laboratories with these testing processes.
