Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Screening for mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS)

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

The preferred test to screen for MPS is MPSSC / Mucopolysaccharides (MPS) Screen, Urine, which includes both the quantitative analysis of total glycosaminoglycans and qualitative liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry analysis of the specific sulfates.

Method Name A short description of the method used to perform the test

Only orderable as part of a profile. See LYSDU / Lysosomal Storage Disorders Screen, Urine.
