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. 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.
