During the last years there have been significant advances in the methods available for the detection and investigation of individuals with inherited metabolic disorders. The burgeoning of molecular biology and the discovery of new classes of inherited metabolic disorders are well know. What is perhaps less well recognised, is that there have been comparable advances in analysis and laboratory automation. We report the main aspects of tandem mass spectrometry, high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection and magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
