EARLY DISEASE DETECTION FOR NEWBORNS

Baby Sensor

The Baby Sensor provides information on whether the newborn child is affected by genetic metabolic diseases.

Congenital diseases are often diagnosed too late

Many seemingly healthy people have genetic defects in them that can trigger hereditary diseases in their children. These diseases are not always detected immediately in newborns.

This can lead to the fact that essential treatment measures are not taken, and the genetic disease can spread unhindered in the toddler’s body. It often leads to a lifelong impairment of the health of the baby, which possibly could have been avoided had the right measures been taken.

Early detection helps with prevention

In many cases, congenital diseases can be well controlled by timely preventive treatment measures, and possible disabilities or developmental disorders in affected children can be avoided.

For this reason, it makes sense to examine infants for common genetic diseases at an early stage and, if necessary, to take the appropriate steps based on the results.

This is how the Baby Sensor works

As part of our Baby Sensor, our laboratory carries out a comprehensive examination of the urine sample sent in. Two hundred fifty different metabolites are analyzed.

This enables us to diagnose more than 100 different congenital metabolic diseases at an early stage. This makes the Baby Sensor currently one of the most comprehensive analyses available worldwide for this purpose.

After the successful completion of the analysis, we summarize the test results in a detailed written evaluation. The report contains comprehensive information on the diseases examined and provides clear information on the respective complications.

In this way, the Baby Sensor can make a valuable contribution to preventive health care for small children and can help to detect congenital diseases early so that preventive and treatment measures can be taken in good time.

The Baby Sensor at a glance:

  • Analysis of 250 metabolites in urine
  • Testing for more than 110 congenital metabolic diseases
  • Modern test procedures in our laboratory
  • Detailed written evaluation of the test results
  • Scientific advice from the pediatrician if required

After a successful analysis, we summarize the individual results in a detailed result report – similar to the one shown in this demo.
