Total process management for your newborn screening laboratory

Newborn screening generates vast amounts of data that require continuous tracking. With effective information management, you can increase process throughput and reduce costs. Our dedicated informatics solutions for newborn screening laboratories keep vital information flowing from sample punching to patient results and beyond. 

As the global leader in newborn screening, PerkinElmer was well-positioned to develop the  world’s first laboratory information management system specifically intended for newborn screening. Specimen Gate® is the result of years of continuous development, and the product is widely used in all parts of the world. Specimen Gate® software modules provide control and monitoring tools for the entire screening process.

Specimen Gate® software is designed to simplify the data collection and workflow processes involved with receiving specimens, screening for abnormalities, managing patient information, generating specimen reports, and following up abnormal and unsatisfactory specimens.

Specimen Gate® includes four modules providing control and monitoring tools for the entire screening process:
