ISAC, ICCS and ESCCA are pleased to announce that the following individuals have passed the International Cytometry Certification Examination (ICCE) in January 2013:
Andrew Box, Kansas City, Missouri, USA
Heath Vignes, Iowa City, Iowa, USA
Since September 2011 the ICCE has certified more than 90 cytometrists worldwide. The ICCE is now available five days a week at 500 locations worldwide. Please visit www.cytometrycertification.org to register today.
Please join the Certification Advisory Committee in congratulating our colleagues in achieving this milestone in their careers. Certified cytometrists are encouraged to use the designation C.Cy. or CCy after their names on their letterhead, business cards, website and all forms of address to indicate that they have achieved this status.
About ICCE: The ICCE is the result of two years of collaboration between ISAC, ICCS and ESCCA with strong financial support from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation and with valuable input from cytometrists in many locations and work settings. The process began with a market feasibility study, which concluded that there was a perceived need for a cytometry certification and that there was a common body of knowledge shared by cytometrists in all work settings. A role delineation study was then conducted to produce the ICCE content outline, and volunteers wrote, edited and approved the examination.
