Company Overview


We believe that everyone deserves a healthy start, regardless of their socio-economic status or geography.

Baebies was founded in 2014 by Richard West and Vamsee Pamula, following the successful development of digital microfluidics technology, the development and launch of multiple products, and the eventual sale of Advanced Liquid Logic to Illumina, Inc. Baebies has now licensed its core technology, acquired product and manufacturing assets, and built a seasoned management and technical team to pursue opportunities in newborn screening and pediatric testing.


Our mission is to save lives and make lives better for all by bringing new technologies, new tests and new hope to children, parents and healthcare professionals worldwide.

> 100 million

More than 100 million babies born worldwide each year are not screened for even the most basic treatable congenital disorders.

1 baby per minute

This translates to 1 baby per minute that goes untreated when effective, and often inexpensive, therapies are available.

> 4 million

In the US alone, more than 4 million babies are born every year – and nearly every newborn is screened for an average of 43 conditions.

> 1 in 300

More than 1 in 300 newborns in the United States have a condition detectable through newborn screening.

Treatable conditions

Most babies with serious but treatable conditions caught by newborn screening grow up healthy with expected development.

Early detection

Early detection through newborn screening – along with an associated therapy – can significantly improve a baby’s health, often saving their life.
