Torch Screen

About this test

These tests are used to screen mothers or infants for certain congenital infections (infections transmitted from mother to foetus/newborn via the placenta). The mother may be tested to identify symptoms in her newborn. Often the TORCH Screen is used to identify whether a pregnant woman has any of these infections.

Infections like toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella may lead to malformations, growth delay, and neurological dysfunction.

The TORCH screen is one way to assess whether you or your child has a congenital infection.

Who is this test for?

This test is for pregnant women who are suspected of having one or more of the TORCH infections, or who would like to ensure that they are infection free. Mothers of newborns may also be tested to identify possible infections in their child.
