How it works: Once your screening packet is complete
Once complete, the healthcare professional will return the screening packet to you. Simply mail the sample to our lab using the UPS Next-Day Air envelope, provided in the HealthCheck|NB screening packet, by placing it in the nearest UPS drop-box. A detailed list of instructions will be e-mailed to you after you've signed up.
Your pediatrician will notify you of your lab results. An abnormal result at the time of screening indicates the need for diagnostic testing to confirm the presence of a disorder. If an abnormality is confirmed, early medical intervention can play a key role in helping to lead a healthier life. Our genetic counselors will work directly with your pediatrician, if results require follow up action.
