Patient and Laboratory Specimen Identification Processes, 1st Edition

CLSI PRE01 covers procedures for patient and specimen ID, collection, transport, and handling that are applicable to most medical laboratory specimens. The document seeks to harmonize patient and specimen ID processes throughout the health care industry wherever blood and nonblood specimens are collected and identified.

This standard is intended for providers and health care professionals who collect, label, and process biological specimens for laboratory testing and who train specimen-collection personnel to do so.

It is also meant to serve as a resource for individuals who manage ID and labeling processes and develop, validate, and verify electronic patient ID systems, procedures, and practices.
