UK NEQAS ICC & ISH Modules

Currently laboratories are able to participate in up to  eleven different Immunocytochemistry Modules (plus one pilot module),
depending on their service commitments and specialised areas of interest.

These modules are as follows:

Module 1:
General Pathology

module1

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of  TWO antigens on each run.

Module 2:
Breast Pathology
(Hormonal Receptors)

module2

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of one antigen at each run

Module 3:
Breast Pathology
(HER-2/neu)

module3

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of HER-2/neu at each run

Module 4:
Lymphoid Pathology

module4

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of TWO antigens on each run

Module 5:
Neuropathology

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of TWO antigens on each run

Module 6:
Cytopathology

module6

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of TWO antigens at each run on cytospin preparations or cell block sections, distributed by the scheme and on participants in house controls which should preferably consist of cytoloical preparations

Module 7A:
Alimentary Tract Pathology – GIST

module7a

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of TWO antigens at each run. CD117 is always the Gold and either: DOG-1 or CD34 or SMA or Desmin or S100 will be the 2nd antigen.

Module 7B:
Alimentary Tract Pathology – Lynch syndrome

module7b

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year with the assessment of TWO paired antigens at each run. MLH1 & PMS2 OR MSH2 & MSH6 will be requested alternately.

Module 8:
Gastric HER2

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year on samples of gastric cancer of varying Her2 membrane protein expression.

 

Module 9:
ALK IHC

alk

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year on cell lines and tissue samples of varying degrees of Alk expression

Module 10:
Pilot PD-L1

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year on cell lines and tissue samples of varying degrees of PD-L1 expression
