Remarks Further information: Participants of the EQA round receive unstained histological slide. The tasks of the participants are: 1. Perform staining of EQA slide using a routine procedure. 2. Carry out evaluation using a routine procedure 1. Send the following 3 items to SEKK (if any item is missing, the participant will be excluded from the round without compensation): a) completed result form (results of this scheme cannot be entered in the Cibule application) b) stained EQA slide c) participant’s internal quality control (IQC) slide used in routine practice Evaluation of the EQA results consists of two phases: 1. The first phase evaluates the correctness of the result for individual samples within the TMA block (the participant's result is compared with the assigned value). 2. The second phase of the evaluation is carried out by a team of 3 experts. This team evaluates (scores) the quality of staining: - of each individual sample within the TMA block (EQA slide) - IQC slide sent by the participant (evaluated as 1 sample) The scores for individual samples from individual experts are summated and these sums are then evaluated. We do not process the slides and the results sent by the participants after the expert group meeting. Complete EQA Plan is available here: http://www.sekk.cz/eqa/EQA_1.htm
