SAMPLE IDENTIFICATION

Aim: Label the samples in strict compliance with the procedures for sampling and sample transmission described by:

– The order creating GBEA 2 (French good medical laboratory practice guidelines) (Chapter 3.2, Identification of samples)

– NF ISO 15189 Standard (Chapter 5.4.1)

It is imperative that all transported specimens or samples include:

– Last name

– Married name for married women

– First name

– Sex

– Date of birth

These indications must be perfectly legible. These items are used to differentiate homonyms, link the patient to his/her medical history, and for attributing the appropriate reference values (men, women, children, newborns, etc.)

NB: The absence of or error in sample identification constitutes a criterion of non-conformity and will be recorded as such in the quality system, potentially resulting in the non-performance of the requested tests.

 In addition to the clinical information on the patient, the following should be shown on the prescription sheet:

– the time and date of the sample,

– the type of specimen and the anatomical site of origin,

– the nature of the prescribed tests,

– the name or stamp of the authorized prescriber,

– contact information of the prescriber.
