    Abstract

    Every laboratory has to be aware of the need to validate the tubes it is using.

    The importance of the pre-analytical activities is well known but sometimes not valued.

    For tube validation each place has to set its own objectives according to its particular needs.

    The EFLM Working Group on pre-analytics tries to help in setting some consensus on these aspects.

    A EFLM Recommendation on this is being prepared.
