Screening tests are used to identify genetic abnormailites or disease at an early stage to help reduce the progression to serious illness. The sorts of tests performed during pregnacy, in the newborn and then later in life are very different and the number of tests available for screening gradually grows. The articles on screening in Lab Tests Online-UK reflect this mix of tests and the ages at which they are found useful and have been adopted by the National Health Service.
