Guthrie test

  Test for a number of genetic diseases (especially phenylketonuria) based on measuring the concentrations of amino acids in a small sample of blood taken by pricking the heel of the child a few days after birth, by biological assay using mutated bacteria for which the amino acid is a growth factor. Now largely superseded by chromatographic methods.
