NSQAP: Newborn Screening Quality Assurance Program

Newborn screening identifies conditions that can affect a child’s long-term health or survival. CDC’s Newborn Screening and Molecular Biology Branch manages the Newborn Screening Quality Assurance Program (NSQAP) to enhance and maintain the quality and accuracy of newborn screening results. The program provides training, consultation, proficiency testing, guidelines, and materials to state public health laboratories and other laboratories responsible for newborn screening in the U.S. and many other countries.
