Newborn and Pediatrics

Newborn & Pediatrics
Approximately one-tenth of ARUP’s testing is performed on specimens collected from pediatric patients. Because small specimen volumes can pose a challenge, ARUP has developed one of the largest pediatric databases in the laboratory industry.


New Test Highlight:

Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (3005935)

ARUP’s new Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing panel is a comprehensive first-line test to determine the etiology of a patient’s symptoms in acute settings (e.g., the neonatal intensive care unit [NICU]) if a Mendelian genetic condition is suspected.

Trio testing from the proband (patient) and both parents enables optimal diagnostic yield and results interpretation. The panel looks at the whole genome through massively parallel sequencing to quickly diagnose genetic disorders and provide the answers necessary for effective treatment. Final results are reported within 7 days, so you and the families you serve have the data needed to make informed choices.



Our Experts

Consultations for pediatric anatomic and clinical pathology are provided by ARUP’s medical directors and clinical consultants. These staff members hold faculty appointments in the Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine and are board-certified in their areas of specialty.
