BGI NOVA™ Newborn Genetic Screening
Each year, an estimated 7.9 million babies worldwide are born with birth defects, many of which appear healthy at birth and come from families with no history of the disorder. Many affected babies are not identified until the appearance of severe and often irreversible symptoms later in life.
Detecting a disease at an early stage can enable appropriate and timely medical intervention before more serious and sometimes irreversible health issues are caused.
BGI’s NOVA™ Newborn Genetic Screening Test determines a baby’s risk for 87 inherited disorders, as well as providing personalized genetic information on the likely response of 32 pediatric drugs.
