In October 2016, ISAC, the International Clinical Cytometry Society (ICCS) and the American Society for Clinical Pathology Board of Certification (BOC) announced a new Certification in Cytometry that will replace the International Cytometry Certification Examination (ICCE) and the BOC’s Qualification in Cytometry (QCYM) recognition program, both of which will be discontinued at the end of June.
Following the final ICCE exam on June 30, there will be a period of months during which neither the ICCE exam nor the new ASCP BOC certification exam will be available, so please plan accordingly.
