Background: Flow cytometric analysis of the lymphocyte subsets has become one of the most commonly used techniques in the routine clinical laboratory. It is frequently used in monitoring lymphocyte recovery after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), as well as diagnosis and treatment of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Reliable biological variation (BV) data is needed for safe clinical application of these tests. In this study, similar preanalytical and analytical protocols to the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM) checklist were followed and a stringent statistical approach was applied to define BV of T-lymphocytes.
