    Body fluids results may be incorrectly interpreted by the laboratory information system (lis). body fluid results ~ 1,000 celis/ul are reported using the us numeric separators to demark thousandths places (comma, ",") and partial units (decimal, "."). an lis that uses non-us formats could interpret the comma as a partial units separator, which could lead to reporting erroneously low body fluid r.
