The Laboratory Genetic Metabolic Diseases (Lab GMD) is a combined diagnostic and research laboratory which is specialized in metabolism, with a focus on inborn errors of metabolism (IEM). For diagnostic purposes metabolite, enzyme activity and mutation analyses are performed. Lab GMD also houses the Core Facility Metabolomics for intra- and extramural contract research.
Our Organic synthesis laboratory provides home-made standards for metabolic research for the less common compounds, see Organic Synthesis Laboratory.
Lab GMD is accredited by the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA) on the basis of the EN ISO 15189:2012 standard.
