Document Revision (currently CLSI document H56)—Body Fluid Analysis for Cellular Composition
Accurate test results and proper body fluid procedures are essential to appropriate diagnosis of disease and treatment of patients. Some variables may influence test results. Because these variables are loosely defined, inconsistency from one institution to another may exist. This guideline will provide users with recommendations for the collection and transport of body fluids, procedures for the numeration and identification of cellular components, and guidelines for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of body fluids.

Specific Expertise and Work Experience Needed
Successful completion of a CLSI document is dependent upon the commitment of committee volunteers. Generally, volunteers can expect to spend a minimum of two hours per week on CLSI document development or revision activities. Committee chairholders can expect to spend a minimum of three hours on committee activities per week during the development or revision phase. Specific timelines have been determined for this document revision. If you are unable to participate in committee activities on the development dates scheduled, please reconsider your nomination.
