Yes. Providers can order supplies now on the PNS Program supplies order web page. The supplies available include the PNS Program label stationery, MSAFP mailing labels, and MSAFP blood collection kits.
PNS Program special stationery. At revised PNS Program launch, providers should order both the cfDNA and MSAFP screening tests using the CalGenetic Portal. After a screening order is electronically submitted on the CalGenetic Portal, providers will need to print a PNS Program "Consent and Order Confirmation" for each cfDNA and MSAFP screen, respectively. The "Consent and Order Confirmation" will need to be printed on
PNS Program special stationery provided at no cost. The PNS Program special stationery contains four peel-off unique barcode number labels that should be affixed to the required sample collection tubes and to the required paperwork for cfDNA screening and MSAFP screening orders.
MSAFP mailing labels. If you do not ship your specimens to our laboratories via General Logistics Systems (GLS), you will need to preprint the USPS pre-paid MSAFP mailing label and affix it to the MSAFP blood collection kit so that it is sent to the appropriate state-contracted Newborn & Prenatal Screening (NAPS) Laboratory. In the past, the mailing label was included on the first trimester and second trimester TRFs. In the future,
the PNS Program will be providing these blank MSAFP mailing labels for printing at no cost.
MSAFP blood collection kits. These include yellow-top collection tubes, bio-hazard wrappers, and plastic trays.
Note that providers can place orders now for revised PNS Program educational materials, but delivery of these materials may be delayed until closer to the program launch.
