The ICCS Advocacy Committee requests your participation in a Workload Survey for clinical flow cytometry laboratories. Changes since the publication of a prior workload survey (Wolniak et. al., Cytometry B Clin Cytom 2017;92:525 PMID 27363814) include new requirements from regulatory bodies, increased data dimensionality, higher test complexity, labor shortages, and reduced reimbursement.
The objectives of the current survey are to
- compare current workload volumes and staffing between laboratories
- assess the impact of increasing high complexity assays
- assess the capacity of laboratories to implement high complexity assays
- assess the capacity of laboratories to meet applicable regulatory requirements
