Oreana – neonatal screening for newborns, infants and young children
about the test
“Oreana” – A test that provides a detailed genetic picture for the health of newborns, infants and small children. The test was developed with the help of the latest generation of bioinformatics analysis and helps to detect 106 disorders that can create obstacles in the development of children.
With Oreana, early detection of the condition is carried out, which can change the life of the child, as it can have a great contribution to health and quality of life. Initial symptoms of many of these conditions include lack of energy, breathing problems, vomiting, feeding difficulties, and episodes of metabolic crisis that require emergency care. Although treatment can begin as soon as the child begins to show the first symptoms, which can happen a few weeks or months after birth, the growth and development of the child is more affected by the condition. Early detection and starting treatment as early as possible is the most appropriate way to prevent the occurrence of symptoms or to minimize the impact on the condition.
With the help of Orean, 142 genetic and 106 autosomal recessive, autosomal dominant and H-linked chromosomal disorders can be tested. The disorders to be tested with Orean are included in the Panel for Recommended Uniform Screenings, which is a list of disorders selected based on the recommendations of the American College of Medical Genetics (AKMG) for newborn screening, whose early detection can be prevented or to reduce the serious consequences of certain conditions, such as developmental delays, cognitive impairments, neurological and physical difficulties.
Unlike other tests on our market, a simple swab of the mouth is required to make Oreana, which represents a completely non-invasive and painless test for the child.
The results are obtained quickly, so, if necessary, your baby can start with appropriate treatment in the shortest possible time.
Superior technology developed by top experts that gives accurate results.
Performs testing for genetic mutations that cause diseases accompanied by serious health problems.
DETECTS 106 VIOLATIONS
It complements routine newborn screening programs that test for a small number of disorders.
WHEN IS THE IDEAL TIME TO MAKE A TEST?
Your child can be tested from birth until early childhood. Ideally, the sooner the testing is done, the sooner it will be known if the child is affected by a given condition and treatment can be started, thus preventing symptoms or minimizing the impact of the disease.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN SO Oreana BE TESTED FOR?
With the help of Orean, 106 genetic conditions can be tested, with the early detection of which can prevent or reduce the serious consequences of a certain condition, such as developmental delay, cognitive impairment, neurological and physical difficulties. The tested condition can occur as a result of a hereditary condition from parents who are not aware of their carrier status, with or without a previous family history of such a disorder.
Testing is quick and safe for children. For the production of Orean, the Avicenna Laboratory uses a specialized soft stick with which biological material is taken from the inside of the child’s body, with circular movements. The procedure is painless and takes only a few seconds.
