Newborn screening is the practice of testing every newborn for certain harmful or potentially fatal disorder that isn’t otherwise apparent at birth. In the newborn screening, LC-    MS/MS method is mainly applied to the detection of amino acids and acyl carnitines in blood.

Tandem mass spectrometry makes it possible to detect extremely low concentrations of compounds that can be used to indicate whether a baby is likely to have an inborn metabolic disorder.
