Harmonisation of full blood count reports, recommendations of the French-speaking cellular haematology group (GFHC)


Aims To propose recommendations related to the presentation, content and formulation of full blood count analysis reports.

Methods Strong professional agreement among a group of experts from the French-Speaking Cellular Haematology Group (GFHC) was obtained.

Results The following two proposals emerged from the consensus: (1) stratification of comments into three parts upon the discovery of an anomaly in blood cell analysis and (2) selection and/or redefinition of the terms recommended for designating the cell types found in normal and pathological peripheral blood.

Conclusions The recommendations can help biologists who are currently undergoing the process of accreditation.
