Toronto Star Story - Newborn Screening Delays

By admin |

We are pleased to announce that, since this article was published, we have seen almost universal improvement in the length of time it takes samples to reach our laboratory. This is due to the hard work of the many birth hospitals and midwifery practices in Ontario.
