Infants with positive CF newborn screening (NBS) results are called to a CF Centre for verification. Those, in whom the sweat test is elevated, undergo further medical procedures. The aim of our study was to evaluate the applicability of Nanoduct - a new system measuring sweat conductivity and giving immediate results in a CF NBS protocol. Measurements with Nanoduct were compared with the classic pilocarpine method. During 3 years 487 infants from CF NBS had both sweat tests performed on the… CONTINUE READING
