Abstract

This standard addresses the issues associated with specimen collection, the filter paper collection device, and the transfer of blood onto filter paper. The purpose of these considerations is to produce a functional standard that will result in uniform techniques for collecting the best possible specimen for use in newborn screening programs. Issues addressed in the standard include: procedures for applying blood collected by heelstick directly onto the preprinted circles of filter paper; recommendations on the source of blood; other techniques for collection of blood spot specimens; specifications for the filter paper, handling, and the mailing package; specifications for the specimen collection device; the handling of blood spots collected on filter paper for DNA/RNA analysis.
