Test Classification

This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Mayo Clinic in a manner consistent with CLIA requirements. This test has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Testing Algorithm

The following algorithms are available in Special Instructions:

-Newborn Screening Follow-up for Elevations of C8, C6, and C10 Acylcarnitines (also applies to any plasma or serum C8, C6, and C10 acylcarnitine elevations)

-Newborn Screening Follow-up for Isolated C4 Acylcarnitine Elevations (also applies to any plasma or serum C4 acylcarnitine elevation)

-Newborn Screening Follow-up for Isolated C5 Acylcarnitine Elevations (also applies to any plasma or serum C5 acylcarnitine elevation)
