dried blood spots are sent from an outside laboratory
Analytical Validity: Help
1500 apparently normal newborn dried blood spots(DBS) and 16 known positive newborn (DBS) were analyzed; 128 whole venous blood DBS from individuals with normal plasma very long chain fatty acids, 40 from known males with X-linked adrenoelukodsytrophy, 37 mutation confirmed X-linked heterozygotes, and 36 from Zellweger spectrum disorders were analyzed.
