Notes100 μL of sample (SeraFlx BIOMATRIX) was aliquoted for extraction. The sample was fortified at 50 ng/mL with methylmalonic acid. It was also fortified with 5 μL of succinic acid (20 μg/mL in water, for validation purposes only). 5 μL of the internal standard (2,500 ng/mL MMA-D3 in water) was added to the sample. The sample was precipitated using 300 μL of 0.5% formic acid in methanol followed by a 10 second vortex at 3,000 rpm. The sample was then centrifuged at 4,000 rpm for 10 minutes at 10 °C. 250 μL of the supernatant was filtered using a Thomson SINGLE StEP standard filter vial (PVDF, 0.2 μm, Restek cat.# 25895) prior to analysis.
