Amino Acid analysis is necessary for the diagnosis of a variety of inborn errors of metabolosm. These include, but are not limited to, phenylketonuria, tyrosinemia, citrullinemia, non-ketotic hyperglycinemia, maple syrup urine disease, and homocystinuria. The assay is also key for the continued monitoring of treatment plans for these disorders and useful for assessing nutritional status of patients. Our methodology is highly accurate at very low levels as well as at elevated levels.

Plasma should be separated from cells as soon as possible after
collection. Freeze plasma below -20 degrees C. Patient age is
required for correct reference range.

Patient Preparation:
Collect plasma specimens after an overnight fast (or at least 4 hours
after a meal). Non-fasting samples are acceptable for pediatric
patients.
