GUTHRIE TEST


Price:  £179.00
Discounted Price:  £149.00    view our pricing policy
 

A Guthrie test is a blood test which is carried out on newborn babies. The test is used to detect an inherited genetic disorder called phenylketonuria.

The disorder is caused by a defect in the metabolic pathway which breaks down the amino acid phenylalanine. If untreated, phenylketonuria can cause severe intellectual disability, and early detection via this test is vital.


A Guthrie test is also used to screen for other diseases in addition to phenylketonuria. Additional conditions that may be tested for include cystic fibrosis, congenital hypothyroidism, and sickle cell anaemia.

Mrs Buckley - Suffolk
I am just writing to say what excellent service I have received in relation to the Vit D test I ordered. I phoned to ask about using Recorded Delivery and had a really warm, friendly and informed and professional response from a very, very nice lady who took the call. There wasn't a lengthy and frustrating "press Number "-" for . . . " to go through before my call was answered and I didn't have to wait in a queue for my call to be answered and once answered I didn't feel "rushed" at all during the call. This morning I received an email to say my results were available online and I was also called to be told my results by the same really nice woman I spoke with yesterday as she said she recognised my Results and wanted to reassure me as quickly as possible given the trouble I had had getting enough blood to fill the phial and knowing I was dreading having to possibly redo the test. I can't speak highly enough of the service.
Miss Taiwo - Lincolnshire
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with my blood tests. The last of the results just came through and they were exactly what I need for my clinical rotations. I had been running around like a crazy person for over a month before you guys efficiently sorted things for me in under 2 weeks. So thank you!
