As many of us are fully aware, cell blocks represent a valuable tool in modern cytopathology for immunohistochemistry and molecular investigations. Although several different methods of cell block preparation are well described in the literature, there are few or no reports about daily practices variability and standardisation of results, and presently, no External Quality Assurance (EQA) trials are available.
European Federation of Cytology Societies (EFCS) in cooperation with UK NEQAS CPT prepared a survey to gather valuable information about cell block practice, with the aim to promote quality in diagnostic cytopathology cell block utilisation.
To obtain as many as possible relevant responses from cytology laboratories across the Europe, we kindly ask you to fill the survey and to disseminate this message among the colleagues in your country.
