The Biochemical Genetics Laboratory performs specific testing in the diagnosis and monitoring of patients with inborn errors of metabolism. Several categories can be identified: amino acid and organic acid disorders, mucopolysaccharidoses, oligosaccharidoses, galactosemia, and lysosomal enzyme deficiencies.

Professionals in clinical biochemical, and human genetics provide test reports with interpretations. Telephone consultation services regarding the report are available. For patients diagnosed with biochemical genetics disorders, methods of medical treatment, diet therapy and genetic counseling are also available.
