Survey on Immunocytochemistry

Lausanne and Paris, 29.11.2018


Dear colleague/EFCS member

Immunocytochemistry (ICC) on cytological material is a powerful but still demanding diagnostic tool with specific problems. We believe that an update and comprehensive overview about the application of ICC on cytological samples in European laboratories could assist us to prepare recommendations for better and more efficient ICC on cytological samples. To reach this goal our colleagues Irena Srebotnik-Kirbis, Margareta Strojan-Flezar (Slovenia) and Ruben Roque (Portugal) prepared a survey accessible here  This survey is user-friendly and take you no more than 10 minutes to be filled-in. The deadline for the answers is January 15th,2019.

In order to obtain as many as possible relevant responses from cytology laboratories across the Europe, we kindly ask you to disseminate this message among the colleagues in your country. Data about this survey will be presented at the 42nd European Congress of Cytology in Malmö in June 2019. Comments and recommendations will be done under the auspices of the EFCS and the participating countries will be mentioned.


Thank you for your help and your answers.


Best regards,



Chair of the EFCS scientific committee



EFCS General Secretary
