ESCCA is aware of the technical complexity and constant evolution of cytometry instrumentation and its applications, requiring continuous training and education. We also aim to help ESCCA members, and especially the young ones, to attain excellence in their work in cytometry, be it in the clinical or in the basic fields. In order to attest the level of excellence of cytometrists the ESCCA Education and Accreditation Committee has created the European Cytometry Certificate, which is now in course of implementation.
