Biological Variation: From Principles to Practice provides a simple but comprehensive guide on how to produce data on biological variation, locate such data in the literature and use the data in everyday laboratory practice. There is significant renewed interest in strategies for setting up quality specifications as well as for setting up population-based and subject-specific reference ranges. Up-to-date information that is not readily available in other texts has been collected in this book. The book is written for all those concerned with quality in laboratory medicine - those who work in laboratories that process patient specimens, laboratory professionals concerned with quality administration and management, those undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate courses in laboratory medicine, and trainees who are taking professional examinations or seeking certification.
