Total Galactose

Astoria-Pacific’s SPOTCHECK Total Galactose test is used to help screen for Galactosemia.
When galactose is ingested by an affected newborn, the galactose-1 phosphate accumulates intracellularly causing blood and urine galactose levels to become elevated.  Serum galactose measurements can be used to diagnose and treat Galactosemia.

The test is available on both the SPOTCHECK Flow and Pro systems.
