Organization: CLSI
Publication Date: 1 October 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 76
scope:

This document provides diagnostic laboratories and diagnostic test manufacturers with updated guidelines for determining reference intervals for quantitative laboratory tests. It includes specific recommendations regarding procedures that can be used to establish and verify reliable reference intervals for use in clinical laboratory medicine. By following these recommendations, laboratories can provide reference intervals that are adequate and useful for clinical interpretation.

Issues related to the reference subject selection process, the importance of preanalytical and analytical considerations, the calculation methods and requirements for estimating valid reference intervals, and the transference of reference intervals are discussed. Examples of the recommended estimation and calculation processes are provided. Finally, issues related to the presentation and use of reference intervals are discussed, followed by a brief section that examines a number of important but collateral reference value topics not amenable to inclusion in this document.
