Blood test for tmau1

Anyone have information on where, and who to send a blood sample to, for the TMAU1/FMO3 gene test within the UK?

I've seen that many people in different order at different times so i can't be 100% sure but but myself I got aninitial diagnossis through Dr Nigel Manning at sheffield childrens hospital who did a urine test for triemthylaminuria, which was positive. They were then doing a blood test trial and I went to my Drs, got him to draw the blood, then with it packed jumped on a train and delivered it myself to sheffield, this was over 18 months ago now. From there I was diagnosed as primary tmau. I was then refered by my gp to the national genetics counselling service who agreed to test my daughter and wife (it goes to a comitte to decide as it costs moola) and I have since got the results back from there.

Not sure if there is an 'official' procedure - maybe its worht asking in one of the faqs for dr lachmann?
