  (a) It shall be the duty of the administrative officer or other person
in charge of each institution caring for infants  twenty-eight  days  or
less  of  age  and the person required in pursuance of the provisions of
section forty-one hundred thirty of this chapter to register  the  birth
of  a child, to cause to have administered to every such infant or child
in its or his care a test for phenylketonuria,  homozygous  sickle  cell
disease,  hypothyroidism,  branched-chain ketonuria, galactosemia, homo-

as may from time to time be designated by the commissioner in accordance
with  rules  or regulations prescribed by the commissioner. Testing, the

necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective  date  are
