Dear Mrs. Irvine,
I am responding to your e-mail inquiring about the Flow Cytometrychecklist item
The checklist item, which requires retention of gated dot plots andhistogramsfor at least
10 years, was intended to apply to CD34quanitation performed for stem cell
transplantation andleukemia/lymphoma/MDS immunophenotyping.  The retention period does
notapply to lymphocyte subsets (e.g. CD4, CD8).  The Diagnostic ImmunologyResource
Committee is recommending that this checklist item be revisedin the next edition to
clarify the intent.
The documentation may be stored electronically or as paper documents.Documents stored
electronically must contain the same information asprinted documents (e.g. plots contain
the specific gating information)and must be retrievable throughout the entire retention
Please contact me if I can be of further assistance.
Sincerely,Lyn Wielgos, MT(ASCP)Technical SpecialistLaboratory Accreditation
