    In collecting samples for NBS, the preferred method is:

    • A.

      Venipuncture

    • C.

      Heel prick method

    • D.

      Butterfly method

    Correct Answer
    C. Heel prick method
    Explanation
    The preferred method for collecting samples for NBS is the heel prick method. This method involves pricking the heel of a newborn baby to obtain a small blood sample. It is preferred because it is relatively easy to perform, minimally invasive, and provides an adequate amount of blood for testing. Venipuncture, ETS (earlobe puncture), and the butterfly method (a type of venipuncture using a small needle and tubing) are alternative methods that may be used in certain situations, but the heel prick method is generally the preferred choice.

Drying the blood spots also makes it easier for the laboratory technicians to handle and analyze the samples accurately.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a baby's result is normal for G6PD, it means that the test did not detect any abnormalities or deficiencies in the baby's G6PD enzyme levels. In such cases, the results are released 14 working days from the date of receipt for courier. This suggests that the laboratory requires this amount of time to process and analyze the test results before releasing them. Therefore, the statement "True" indicates that the given explanation is accurate.
