Mayo Clinic Biochemical Genetics Laboratory
Genetic disorders have become a focal point in laboratory medicine. Approximately 1,000 inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) have been identified to date primarily through the detection of endogenous metabolites abnormally accumulated in biological fluids and tissues. The laboratory discipline that covers the biochemical diagnosis of IEM is Clinical Biochemical Genetics, and is defined as one concerned with the evaluation and diagnosis of patients and families with inherited metabolic disease, monitoring of treatment, and distinguishing heterozygous carriers from noncarriers by metabolite and enzymatic analysis of physiological fluids and tissuesLearn More
