CLSI Newborn Screening Standards:

Ensuring Good Health From the Start


Today, virtually all (>99%) of the more than 4 million infants born in the United States each year are screened for conditions such as phenylketonuria, congenital hypothyroidism, galactosemia, and hemoglobinopathies. CLSI’s newborn screening standards provide the critical guidance needed to detect potentially life-threatening and debilitating conditions for better outcomes and healthy, happy infants.
