The development of electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (LCMS/MS) in recent years has facilitated the introduction of expanded newborn screening programmes in many countries. This technology has increased the capacity to test newborns for rare metabolic disorders during the neonatal period. In collaboration with researchers, we have developed a method for identifying and quantifying rare metabolic disorders using Shimadzu’s LCMS-8040.Read More
