About CLSI


Spring Contest Winners

CLSI offered an e-mail contest on the first day of spring in which participants were asked to send us an e-mail containing a quote about how they or their organization use our standards. After a lot of deliberation, we couldn’t decide on just one quote based on the quality of the content we received… so we picked three winners!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and a special congratulations to our winners below who will receive a free PDF standard of their choice. To preview or purchase any of the standards we offer, visit our shop at And keep an eye on your e-mail for future contests, like April’s Lab Week contest!

CLSI Marketing Team

“St. Mary’s is a hospital laboratory which services a 300 bed hospital located in Western Colorado. We are currently implementing a Quality Management System (QMS). We truly feel that this implementation will take our laboratory to the next “Quality” level. The CLSI documents are such a valued resource, without which we would not be able to achieve our goal. It is so comforting to read the documents, review the templates, and all the valued resources that they provide. The CLSI documents not only explain how to implement a QMS, but demonstrate as well through the examples. The authors of the documents are experts in the field and we feel very confident following the established guidelines!”

Kris Arney, MT (ASCP), Quality Manager at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA 

“We use CLSI standards in order to assist with writing policies and procedures as well as various PI and QI initiatives. This helps us not only maintain compliance with standards but also to be proactive and think “outside the box” when brainstorming for solutions to problems.”

Gale Froeba, MPH, MT(ASCP)SC, Director of Laboratory Services at Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

“The Highlands Hospital Laboratory utilizes the CLSI standards to ensure the quality of our testing, including pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical quality assurance. The CLSI standards are a great source of information and provide an excellent Standard of Care for all laboratories. Many of the CLSI standards exist as current citations for most of our laboratory policies and procedures at the Highlands Hospital.”

Erin E. Fronczek, MT(ASCP), Laboratory Manager at Highlands Hospital in Connellsville, Pennsylvania, USA
