Method

Immunoassay

Method Description

Liquid Chromatography/ Triple Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) instrumentation is used to quantitatively evaluate patient urine specimens for metabolically-derived organic acids and evidence of exposure to environmental pollutants. Our Urinary Metabolic Profile is run on this comprehensive testing platform, which offers superb separation, resolution, and identification of compounds from a complex biological mixture such as urine, yielding precise and repeatable results.

Clinical Utility

Vitamin deficiencies and imbalances may produce a range of health issues, including fatigue, mood changes, digestive problems, and others. Our comprehensive urinary metabolic profile measures 36 organic acids to create a unique patient biochemistry profile that reflects how well the body is obtaining and utilizing nutrients. A customized diet and lifestyle plan can then be established to address to specific nutritional needs. .
