Telepathy™ NBS

OZ Telepathy™ NBS (Newborn Blood Spot) prepopulates an electronic form with the state laboratory’s required data elements, then prints a label to be affixed to the specimen card and sends the electronic lab order to the state laboratory which is consumed by the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
