UK NEQAS ICC & ISH Modules

The modular approach to our Scheme’s design means that a laboratory can choose to participate in just the Modules which reflect its own testing repetoire.

The Modules we currently offer 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
(Hormone 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:
Mismatch Repair (MMR) Proteins

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. We assess your staining methodology on tissue samples of gastric cancer showing varying HER2 membrane protein expression.

Module 9:
HER2 ISH Interpretive & Technical

 

This module offers FOUR assessment runs per year on cell lines and tissue samples of varying degrees of Her2 expression

Module 10:
NSCLC ALK IHC

alk

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

Module 11:
NSCLC PD-L1 IHC (Pilot)

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