An acylcarnitine biochemical profile is performed for detection of disorders of fatty acid oxidation and organic acidurias.

Acylcarnitines are metabolites involved with fatty acid oxidation and organic acidurias.  This test is valuable in diagnosing and moitoring patients with a clinical suspicion for one these disorders or newborns with a positive screen.  It may be recommended to perform amino acid analysis and urine organic acids together with acylcarnitines to aid the diagnosis of these disorders. 

Fatty acid oxication disorders are lipid metabolism disorders that are caused by a deficiency of the enzymes needed to break down fats which results in delayed mental and physicial development. Organic aciduras are a group of disorders in which there is a defect in protein metabolism due to absent or malfunctioning enzymes.  This can cause imbalances in metabolic pathways that disrupt the body's normal functioning and development.  Elevation of acylcarnities can be diagnostic for several fatty acid oxidation disorders and organic acidurias. 

This test is performed by tandem mass spectrometry. Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) is an analysis technique that utilizes two mass analyzers to target analytes based on mass and charge. This mass filtering process provides highly sensitive and specific measurements of small molecules or peptides from biological samples.
