Please note that from this trial (LI 181904) onwards the report for the Leukaemia Immunophenotyping Programme has changed. In response to participant opinion z scores and the corresponding Shewhart and Cusum control charts have been removed. Should any participant require to calculate a z score for a particular antigen the values are available on the report.
With effect from Monday 19th November 2018, Mr Liam Whitby will be taking over the position of Director of UK NEQAS for Leucocyte Immunophenotyping. This follows the retirement of the previous post holder Professor David Barnett. Liam will already be well known to our participants having worked at UK NEQAS for Leucocyte Immunophenotyping for over 20 years. He has significant experience in the provision of external quality assessment and is looking forward to the opportunity to develop the programmes offered by this centre to ensure they continue to meet the requirements of all participating laboratories.
