For Healthier Babies

As the leader in newborn screening tests and instruments, we deliver solutions that help prevent hundreds of thousands of disabilities and fatalities among children every year. With just a small blood sample at birth, this life-saving technology can detect more than 50 congenital disorders early enough for physicians to administer the treatment necessary to save lives and prevent disabilities. Despite this progress, only about one in three babies worldwide receive newborn screening. That's why PerkinElmer is collaborating with governments and health organizations to make it more accessible around the world.
