A genomic test that detects inherited genetic conditions in newborns before any symptoms manifest.

GenomeScope Newborn

GenomeScope Newborn test identifies variations in genes associated with childhood-onset conditions before the appearance of any signs or symptoms. Insights from the test can enable timely intervention that paves the way for proactive health decisions as well as an informed future.
  • Sample Type : Umbilical Cord Blood or Heel prick
  • Collection Type : Paramedic

Frequently Asked Questions

Signs and symptoms of genetic conditions can be visible from birth or may develop over time. And when these symptoms appear, it can take an average of 2 to 3 misdiagnoses, 8 physicians, and between 5.6 to 7.6 years before arriving at an accurate diagnosis. This misdiagnosis or delay in identifying a condition can lead to severe complications, including premature death and lifelong disability.

The GenomeScope Newborn test identifies such genetic conditions before any signs or symptoms manifest. Insights from the test can enable timely intervention that paves the way for proactive healthcare decisions as well as an informed future.

A genetic test is the only possible way to detect the risk of your baby suffering from a genetic condition. These statistics throw light on the fact that rare genetic conditions are becoming more common globally, including in India.

  • There are 7000 known rare diseases.
  • At any point in time, they affect 263 to 446 million people all over the world.
  • 80% of these rare diseases have a genetic origin, with half of them targeting children.
  • With an ever-growing population and prevalence of consanguinity, rare genetic diseases have become a public health burden for India.

  • Heart conditions like Aortic aneurysms & Cardiomyopathies
  • Blood conditions like Beta Thalassemia, Fanconi Anemia
  • Hereditary childhood cancers like Wilms tumor, Retinoblastoma
  • Neurological conditions like Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Autism spectrum disorder
  • Endocrine Conditions like Hypothyroidism, Adrenal hyperplasia
  • Immune Conditions like SCID, Chronic granulomatous disease
  • Kidney Conditions like Polycystic kidney disease, Hyperoxaluria
  • Metabolic Conditions like Krabbe disease, Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 3
  • Other conditions like Muscular dystrophy, Hearing Loss, optic atrophy Type 1

The term newborn screening refers to screening newborns for treatable inherited conditions soon after birth. It is a biochemical screening test that helps to screen babies for close to 50 severe-but-treatable conditions. It requires additional confirmation via genetics, which may require an extra sample and more time, causing interim anxiety.

Also, missed diagnosis may lead to overall increased poorer outcomes. GenomeScope Newborn, on the other hand, is an advanced genomic test that offers a broader view of conditions that may not be identifiable by blood biochemistry.
