Here is a quick list of Must-Have items for Pediatric offices...

1. Megallan Diagnostics Leadcare II Lead Blood Analyzer-Here is some important information about who should be tested from Leadcare II's Website:   

Federal law requires that all Medicaid eligible children be tested at 12 and 24 months and ages 36 to 72 months if they have not previously been tested.

Each state has guidelines for blood lead testing.  The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that “children should be tested at least once when they are 2 years of age or, ideally, twice, at 1 and 2 years of age, unless lead exposure can be confidently excluded.(
American Academy of Pediatrics, Committee on Environmental Health. Lead Exposure in Children:  Prevention, Detection, and Management. Policy Statement. Pediatrics. 2005; 116:1036-1046. Affirmed Jan 2009.)

Children are considered at risk if any of the following are true (Wengrovitz AM, Brown, MJ. Recommendations for Blood Lead Screening of Medicaid-Eligible Children Aged 1-5 Years: an Updated Approach to Targeting A Group at High Risk.  Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. August, 7, 2009; 58(RR09) 6. Accessed Jan 2012.):

  • Child lives in or frequently visits a home built before 1950, or a recently renovated home built before 1978.
  • Child has a sibling or frequent playmate with elevated blood lead levels.
  • Child’s parent or primary caregiver works with lead. Examples include: battery recycling or manufacture, lead smelting, lead mining, auto repair, shipbuilding, construction, plumbing, and glass manufacture.5
  • Child is a recent immigrant, refugee, or foreign adoptee.
  • Child has a household member who uses traditional, folk, or ethnic remedies or cosmetics or who routinely eats food imported informally (e.g., by a family member)
    The LeadCare II System was developed with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) so children can be screened for lead wherever they already receive healthcare or services.  It is     the only CLIA-waived point-of-care blood lead testing system.

    Accurate, early diagnosis is crucial so that children can be treated to prevent serious health and learning consequences. Blood lead testing also guides lead remediation and enforcement actions to     eliminate lead contamination in housing, consumer products, and the environment.

   Also, here is a quick video introducing LeadCare II System:
