Let’s kick start with the old yet gold saying, “Prevention is better than cure!” What if you can identify the diseases and disorders you will get in the future? For sure, we can prepare for that or rectify the condition in the beginning itself. One such attempt to know the errors is ‘Neonatal Screening’ or ‘Newborn baby screening’.

Trivitron Healthcare, the largest Medical Technology Company of Indian origin promoted Neonatal screening in the country last year with their campaign #protectyourbaby. Trivitron’s vision is to manufacture the most innovative medical technology products, provide efficient services and solutions, to make Healthcare affordable & accessible to everyone across the globe.

WHAT IS NEWBORN SCREENING?

It is a simple screening test done on a newborn baby within the first 72 hours of its birth. The primary target of this test is to detect earliest possible recognition of congenital metabolic disorders which can be not just harmful and potentially fatal.

This Neonatal screening is a preventive pediatric screening service provided to all the neonates to assess the possibility of genetic disorders in the area of “Inborn Errors of Metabolism”. These errors, which are not harmful now, have all the potential to cause permanent neurological, cognitive, tactile and physical damage in the child. If such errors are detected in this newborn baby screening, they can be treated easily. Considering our country’s health scenario, economical conditions and technology, neonatal screening is the need of the hour!

Apart from this, Trivitron has initiated works in Laboratory Diagnostics concentrating on segments, including Cardiology, Critical Care, Vision care (ophthalmology) and Clinical Diagnostics. Cardiac positioning system, Mobile Retinal screening system, wireless ECG systems and Syringe pumps are some of the products manufactured by them for the same.
