Synovial fluid analysis: A synovial fluid analysis involves removing synovial fluid from the joint space by needle aspiration (arthrocentesis); the fluid is evaluated visually, chemically (e.g. clot formation), and microscopically for (urate) crystals and certain types of blood cells (which are normally not present or at very low levels).
