Newborn Screening Specimen Tracking

Track-Kit NBS

Track-Kit is a secure, cloud-based turnkey system that tracks every specimen from hospital shipping to receipt at the lab, reducing the impact of late or missing deliveries for better patient outcomes. Track-Kit is made for State Newborn Screening (NBS) Programs mandated to screen every new baby’s blood spot specimen for devastating but preventable conditions within a critical time window.


  • Provides real-time status of all specimens and packages by location, and alerts hospital and state lab staff when specimen delivery is late
  • Secure portal for each user – birthing facility/midwives, state laboratory, state NBS program (policy center), card distributor
  • Integrates with most courier systems, making the shipping process easier
  • Prioritizes the best shipping option by location, such as Saturday delivery to meet weekend screening schedule
  • Enables state lab recollection requests to be sent electronically to hospitals to expedite screening

With Track-Kit NBS, the lab has complete visibility into specimens that are missing.
Track-Kit tracks the location and status of every specimen and informs the hospital and lab staff of specimen delays – not just the shipper (medical facility or midwife) as with standard couriers. Staff can take action sooner to locate or recollect them and inform the lab of incoming volumes to prepare resources.
