We are partnering with advocacy groups to advance newborn screening and offer additional newborn screening from our CLIA-certified laboratory. The additional newborn screening is ideal for families that are looking to screen for more conditions beyond the standard public health newborn screening programs. This newborn screening service for families is called Eli. Eli is not available for purchase for residents of MD, NY or PA at this time.

Next Generation Newborn Health Screening with Eli

Newborn screening with Eli is:

    1) Order online. 2) Your baby’s healthcare provider collects  samples. 3) Ship samples to our lab and receive results quickly.
    An estimated 1 in 150 babies will be affected by a condition Eli screens for. Early detection from newborn screening is critical for the ability to intervene and provide better health outcomes.
