How to Obtain NBS Test Results
The WSLH Newborn Screening (NBS) Laboratory can only provide results for individuals that were tested in Wisconsin. For out-of-state births, please contact the birth state for newborn screen results. You can find individual state information here: www.babysfirsttest.org
Patients / Parents / College Students
Newborn screening results, including sickle cell results, can be requested by contacting your health care provider. Please have your provider use the NBS Report Request Form below.
Submitters / Providers
If you are the facility that submitted the sample, or the health care provider (“Baby’s Physician”) indicated on the collection card, the NBS laboratory automatically sends copies of NBS reports to you. Please first check the patient’s record before requesting a duplicate report. If the report is not found, please print and complete the NBS Report Request Form at the link below and fax to 608-262-5494.
If you need a report but are not the submitter or the health care provider of record, please print and complete the NBS Report Request Form at the red link below and fax to 608-262-5494.
If you are a provider requesting sickle cell results for college athletes, please print the above NBS Report Request Form, write “college” at the top of the form, and fax to 608-262-5494.
PLEASE NOTE: Requests for all reports are generally provided via fax within 3-5 business days; 7-10 days via USPS. If faster turnaround is necessary, please indicate date needed on your request. Any report request found to be incomplete may require additional processing time.
Attn: Submitters and Providers
To ensure timely receipt of NBS reports, it is recommended that you establish an agreement with WSLH to receive by auto-fax (rather than mail) all NBS reports as they become available. To establish an auto-fax agreement, or modify an existing auto-fax agreement, please complete the appropriate auto-fax agreement form below, and follow the instructions for returning form to the WSLH. PLEASE NOTE: Do not use these agreements when requesting copies of specific reports; see red link above.
