What is the SCYM?  


In October 2017 ISAC, the ICCS, and the ASCP BOC launched the SCYM, a new Specialist in Cytometry credential, to replace the previous CCy credential.  Anyone who already has the CCy or passed the ICCE exam before June 30, 2017 will be automatically transitioned to the SCYM.  All other candidates must meet the new eligibility requirements and apply to take the new SCYM exam as the ICCE has been discontinued. 


What are the registration fees for CYTO U? 


All CYTO U courses are free to ISAC members and non-member fees vary depending on the type of content and number of course hours. Fees are noted on the individual course description “More info” page.  Webinars are provided to the cytometry community free of charge.
