IEMScreen - Metabolic Test for Newborn Babies - M001


Product introduction

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are caused by defects in genetic factors, leading to the lack of certain metabolic enzymes in the baby's body, causing problems in the baby's metabolism. This can cause the baby to lack certain essential substances or accumulate toxic substances in the baby's body. Early detection and treatment of congenital metabolic defects can reduce future development and health problems for babies.
