Abstract

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.
