A Guide to Hematology is a valuable, hands-on, laboratory manual for the practitioner and technician. It provides step-by-step guidelines for the collection and processing of blood samples and interpretation of the hemogram. It also serves as a guide to patient assessment and treatment planning for all common hematological disorders and diseases in dogs and cats. Veterinarians are able to test comprehension of the material through case studies with self test questions. This guide is designed to work with all currently available blood analyzer systems, providing detailed guidelines for hemogram interpretation, identification of artifacts and false positive results. Basic science is limited to information that is needed by the individual performing the rest and interpreting the results. This 264 page presentation boasts 178 full color images and has a lay flat binding for easy in lab reference. A Guide to Hematology in Dogs and Cats was designed for the practitioner and technician who incorporate hematology studies in the office setting and is an ideal clinic laboratory reference. Published by Teton New Media in the USA and distributed by CRC Press outside of North America.

In October of 2011, CLSI published a new guideline EP23A on “Laboratory Quality Control Based on Risk Management. In March, 2012, CMS announced its intention to incorporate key concepts from EP23A into its Interpretative Guidelines and QC policy for “Individualized Quality Control Plans. Thus begins a new era of Quality Control in the Age of Risk Management. This issue is intended to help laboratories with the transition between traditional QC practices and the new risk management approach. Laboratories face a steep learning curve to apply risk analysis for identifying and prioritizing failure-modes, developing and implementing control mechanisms to detect those failure-modes, and assessing the acceptability of the residual risks that exist after implementation of a QC Plan. One of the main benefits of the new risk analysis based QC Plans should be an integration of all the control mechanisms that are needed to monitor the total testing process, including pre-analytic, analytic, and post-analytic controls. One of the main risks of the new approach is an expectation that Statistical QC is no longer important, even though SQC still remains the most useful and flexible approach for monitoring the quality of the analytic process. The key to the future is the successful integration of all these control mechanisms to provide a cost-effective quality system that monitors all phases of the total testing process. This issue should help laboratories understand the evolution of QC practices to include risk management, but also to recognize the need to maintain traditional techniques such as Statistical QC, especially during the transition to well-designed and carefully-validated QC Plans. Risk analysis may be risky business unless laboratories proceed carefully and cautiously.

Standard Haematology Practice 3 is a collection of guidelines developed by members of the British Committee for standards in Haematology and its component task forces. Their objective is to maintain standards of excellence in British Haematology. The book contains 21 guidelines that describe best practice on a number of clinical and laboratory aspects of haematology. The content is unique in that it has all been published in peer-reviewed journals. Because the information is spread across six journals there is a need to condense the information into one volume that is sturdy enough to stand repeated use in the haematology department.
