as luck would have it, I just happen to have the new checklist in front of
me (no, really, I do)
CAP revised this requirement on the new 9/27/07 edition
Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water (CLRW) is the old Type I water which CAP
has graciously enclosed in the checklist.
Special Reagent Water (SRW) is now defined by laboratory procedures that
need different specifications than CLRW, but CAP does not graciously enclose
Instrument Feed Water (IFW) is determined by the equipment manufacturer.
They reference the CLSI Guideline for information on special reagent water,
whatever that means.
Glad I could clear that up for you. No need to thank me, really.
Now, I have to go find the CLSI Guideline myself.
And people wonder why I have a problem with CAP. They couldn't leave well
enough alone, could they?
