The Quick Guide to Body Fluid Testing is
intended to provide clinical laboratory directors, managers, and medical
laboratory scientists with practical information to consider when testing body
fluids. This concise pocket reference outlines the entire body fluid testing
process, beginning with the preanalytical phase, which includes collection,
labeling, transport, processing, and test requests/order management. Practical
how-to guidance is provided to complete the analytical validation and includes
figures that illustrate the preparation of specimens for each experiment and
example calculations to manage and analyze the data for test performance
verification in body fluid matrices. Postanalytical considerations are outlined,
including best practices for reporting, and some common interpretive information
about body fluid testing results is also provided.
