CDB accredited for the detection of severe combined immunodeficiency

In Spain increasingly clinical laboratories, public and private, have the accreditation of the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) in accordance with the international standard UNE-EN ISO 15189, providing reliability on the results of different analytical tests for the study of diseases of the immune system or in which the immune system plays a fundamental role.

Thus, the first accreditation has been granted to the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona (Biomedical Diagnostic Center, CDB) for the detection of severe combined immunodeficiency, being a pioneer in Spain for this type of early detection. From the classic heel blood test that is performed on newborns, it is now possible to detect early this genetic disease of the immune system, commonly known as bubble children.
