Glycine is an amino acid found in the plasma of a patient. It is typically measured using a high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method. This method involves collecting a sample of the patient's plasma, then separating and quantifying the glycine in the sample using a chromatographic column. The sample is then injected into the HPLC system and the glycine is separated from other components in the sample. The amount of glycine in the sample is then measured and reported.
