NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – RTI and Asuragen today announced a collaboration to perform high-throughput screening testing for fragile X syndrome in newborns.

Using Asuragen's technology, screening will be conducted in North Carolina's Early Check study, a free screening study to identify children with rare health conditions before symptoms appear and assess the value of benefits of early intervention. With a mother's consent, Early Check reuses the same blood sample taken for regular newborn screening to test for additional conditions, such as fragile X syndrome.
