Laboratory Divisions


The Biochemical Genetics Laboratory was created in 1968 as part of a federally funded program to improve diagnosis and treatment of children with inborn errors of metabolism in several western states. The laboratory is now within the Clinical Laboratory at Children's Hospital Colorado. The laboratory has been directed by Dr. Stephen Goodman since its opening, and offers tests to detect and monitor treatment of many disorders of amino acid, organic acid, and fatty acid metabolism.
