Who We Are

The Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) is a globally recognized not-for-profit standards development organization with over 24,000 individuals with membership access, 1,200 volunteers, and 250+ products. Our standards are recognized by laboratories, accreditors, and government agencies around the world as the best way to improve medical laboratory testing.

What We Offer

Globally Recognized Standards Documents

Developed by our members for use by the global laboratory community, CLSI’s consensus-based medical laboratory standards are the most widely recognized resources for continually improving testing quality, safety, and efficiency. Organizations use CLSI standards to improve their testing outcomes, maintain accreditation, bring products to market faster, and navigate regulatory hurdles.

An Unmatched Volunteering Experience

Through a consensus-based process, CLSI’s standards are developed and written by volunteer committees of leading experts in the field of laboratory medicine. Our volunteer committees share information from their own laboratory work to create documents used by the medical laboratory community to improve processes, pass and maintain accreditation, meet regulatory requirements, and more.

A Committed Membership Base

Our members help support volunteer committee work and encourage their staff to participate on document development committees. Members are also asked to review, comment, and vote on CLSI documents before they are published—ensuring that the document development process is fair and unbiased, and that everyone has a seat at the table.

Online Learning for Labs Everywhere
