Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Biochemical screening of asymptomatic patients affected with 1 of the following inborn errors of metabolism:

-Short chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAD) deficiency

-Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency

-Medium-chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase (MCKAT) deficiency

-Glutaric acidemia type II

-Ethylmalonic encephalopathy

-2-Methylbutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency

-Isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency

-Glutaryl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency


This test provides a quantitative report of abnormal levels of acylglycines in urine, identified via gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
