Process at NSO

What happens when a sample is received at NSO?

Health care providers play a vital role in the success of NSO. The time spent educating parents, taking newborn screening samples, ensuring requisitions are filled in properly, and promptly mailing out newborn screening samples allows us to provide the best start in life to every infant born in Ontario.

Every sample NSO receives is considered urgent. Analysis and reporting is always done on a STAT basis. Below is an overview of the lab and data entry workflow that occurs at NSO when a sample is received.
