The challenges inherent in many newborn screening programmes for medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency could be overcome by better use of the available second-line tests. Application of “next generation” technologies could minimize many of the problems generated by the current approach to genetic analysis. (Comment on Maier EM. Int. J.
