Medical Term:

biologic sampling


Definition: denotes sampling that can be taken without jeopardy to the whole organism (for hematologic or biochemic study). Because of the complexity of biologic samples, it is usually supposed that the source of the sample is thoroughly mixed and hence representative; this assumption is often not true, in genetic studies in mosaic patients.
