To aid in the ongoing expansion of newborn screening, our team has applied digital microfluidics technology to automate a broad range of clinical assays onto disposable cartridges using nanoliter droplets of sample and reagents. See Baebies poster from APHL NBSGTS 2019.
Congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) infection in newborns can lead to permanent hearing loss and developmental delays if left untreated. Baebies’ Qualitative PCR Assay for cCMV was developed and validated in-house to provide timely and accurate identification of infected babies, facilitating early intervention.
This poster was presented at APHL NBSGTS 2019 in Chicago, IL by authors Tracy Klug and Heather Bilyeu, Missouri State Public Health Laboratory.
