26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After one-and-a-half years of intense development, end-user testing, a successful pilot, and through a contract to the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN) Coordinating Center has developed a centralized, web-based virtual repository of newborn dried blood spots (DBS) as an indispensable tool for newborn screening researchers.
He also led the methodological research into dried blood spot collection, home health examinations, and specimen collection.
Committee Report: Considerations and recommendations for national guidance regarding the retention and use of residual dried blood spot specimens after newborn screening.
Our findings indicate that dried blood spot polymerase chain reaction will only detect 30 percent to 40 percent of babies with cytomegalovirus infection," said Suresh Boppana, MD, co-principal investigator on the study and a professor at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
Previous research has shown that dried blood spots could be used to identify CMV infection.
They compared viral load measurements by using the current standard of frozen plasma and the alternative method of dried blood spots (DBS).
Keynote speakers from Europe, Latin America and Africa will address issues including the importance of early detection of HIV infection, the relevance of rapid testing for epidemiology studies, the use of Dried Blood Spots for routine viral load testing in remote areas, and the experience of South Africa in routine high-volume viral load testing.
To minimize matrix differences and maximize comparability between calibrators and test samples, dried blood spot standards and controls were prepared by mixing with washed red blood cells (6).
