Quick Guide to Body Fluid Testing, Second Edition comprehensively covers the latest updates in three parts devoted to preanalytic considerations such as collection, labeling, handling, transport, specimen pretreatment, test ordering practices, analytic validation and postanalytic considerations. This revised edition includes a new section on validation requirements when replacing instruments, expanded post-analytical considerations to include selection of quality control materials and concentrations, and expanded frequently asked questions to address questions that arise around body fluid testing.

This second edition aims to help laboratories make decisions about their body fluid testing menu and risk-based decisions about the thoroughness of their validation study design, making it a valuable resource to lab professionals. This book will act as a readily available pocket reference for students, academics and health care professionals working in a wide variety of contexts in the body fluid testing process.
