Missouri will be the first state in the US to screen for mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II), otherwise known as Hunter syndrome and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), two life threatening genetic diseases. The state is already screening for several LSDs using the SEEKER platform. Florida recently passed legislation that requires the Advisory Council to consider every condition added to the RUSP within 1 year, and if recommended, the NBS lab would be required to screen for that condition within 18 months.
Baebies is pleased to announce that SEEKER, a high throughput newborn screening laboratory solution, now has CE Mark and available in Europe and other countries that recognize CE Mark. SEEKER quantitatively measures the activity of lysosomal enzymes from newborn dried blood spot specimens. Reduced activity of these enzymes may be indicative of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I), Pompe, Gaucher or Fabry disease.
Baebies, Inc., a company focused on advancing newborn screening and pediatric testing, announced the first assays on the FINDER launch panel, currently under development. The panel includes tests for total serum bilirubin, albumin, direct bilirubin, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) on a single cartridge, making it the first comprehensive, rapid and near-patient testing solution for hyperbilirubinemia. A robust pipeline of future panels for other disorders using the same cartridge on FINDER is also in development.
Dr. Millington refutes further misinformation regarding the application of ‘equivalent cutoffs’ to prospective NBS data, misleading comparisons of MS/MS and fluorometry GAA testing methods and the effect of preanalytical variability on LSD NBS results.
