MN Newborn Screening Program

Slide 9

July 2008

If we look at the conditions that are currently screened for in Minnesota and who tests for which condition, the Minnesota Department of Health screens for biotinidase deficiency, cystic fibrosis, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, congenital hypothyroidism, galactosemia, and hemoglobinopathies.  Whereas at the Mayo Clinic, we screen for amino acidopathies, organoacidopathies, and fatty acid oxidation disorders using tandem mass spectrometry. What you also see is that at the Mayo Clinic, we perform the second tier tests for congenital adrenal hyperplasia and several of the tandem mass spectrometry tests.
