Biochemical Genetics Laboratory

Genetics | Clinical Chemistry | Targeted Metabolomics 1:1:1

The Biochemical Genetics Laboratory at Indiana University School of Medicine provides core biochemical genetics testing services to IU Health and surrounding hospitals. Enabled by state-of-the-art liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry equipment, the lab offers expanded clinical utility through the addition of atypical analytes, ultra low-specimen volume requirements, and rapid analysis times.

Laboratory Highlights

When starting the lab, we viewed test development as a unique opportunity to innovate improved methods as opposed to simply copying existing approaches. At this week’s IU School of Medicine Medical and Molecular Genetics Departmental seminar series, Dr. Miller explains the process of building the IUBGL and highlights the unique advantages of our novel amino acid, acylcarnitine and urine organic acid tests.
