Owing to rapid changes in the availability of technology and assays for haematology laboratories, there is a need for guidance in the proper selection of new testing methods for all laboratories. Haematologists and pathologists who run these need to critically understand, assess, implement and manage a wide variety of hematologic technologies, including cellular analysis, flow cytometry, molecular diagnostics, haemostasis testing, point-of-care testing and information management. This new international textbook concentrates on all the technological aspects of the practice of laboratory haematology and is structured along technology lines instead of by disease category. Emphasis is places on the use of the various technologies in the diagnosis of hematologic disorders, but also includes operational aspects of laboratory testing such as proper sample collection, quality control, informatics and laboratory management. This book contains focused case studies to exemplify aspects of laboratory testing and incorporation of standards for evaluation of testing technology. This book has the backing of the International Society for Laboratory Hematology (ISLH) which has ensured a unique perspective and broad international focus, emphasizing the scientific background, assessment methods, implementation strategies, diagnostic utility and management of testing.
