Cell count, gram stain and AFB staining of body fluids
What is the potential benefit of lipoprotein electrophoresis analysis on fractions of an ultracentrifuged body fluid
as compared to the whole fluid?
() The risk of infection following injuries involving contact with blood and body fluids
is determined by the type of pathogen, the type of contact, the amount of blood contacted, and the amount of virus present in the patient's blood at time of contact.

In contrast, the cytology laboratory uses multiple slides for the examination of body fluid
samples, both air-dried, Romanowsky- (Diff-Quik-) stained and alcohol-fixed, Papanicolaou-stained preparations.
This series of articles will address the performance of cell counts and differential cell counts on the three most common categories of body fluids
: cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), serous or body cavity fluids (pleural, pericardial, peritoneal), and synovial or joint fluids.
Substituting other body fluids
for blood may produce faster test results, but it eliminates information necessary for accurate mortality risk assessment.
It is important for schools to take the same stance as health care professionals on the handling of blood and body fluid
The authors are to be commended on their comprehensive approach to identifying chylomicrons in body fluids
. By combining triglyceride measurements and lipoprotein electrophoresis performed with aliquots of native fluid as well as lower- and higher-density fluid fractions following ultracentriguation, a diagnostic error was avoided.
Streck's Cell-Chex Auto, a three-level spinal and body fluid
control for evaluating the accuracy and precision of hematology instruments that measure blood cell counts in patient body fluid
samples, is now assayed for the Beckman Coulter UniCel DxH 600 Cellular Analysis System.
