ACBI 2009 Guidelines on the Biochemistry of body fluids Preface extract:
This guideline deals with the analysis of body fluids other than blood and urine. It covers analytical issues interpretation of results and limitations of testing. A section on sweat testing for cystic fibrosis is included in view of the high prevalence of this condition in Ireland, but it is emphasised that for best practice the performance of this test should be confined to specialised centres of excellence.
