ESLHO Symposium in Salamanca well-attended


The annual ESLHO week took place from 5 to 12 November. In the beautiful historic city of Salamanca, Spain, participants from all three ESLHO consortia, EuroFlow, EuroClonality and EuroMRD, came to the Hospedaria Fonseca to present and discuss the status and results of their joint scientific research and EQA programs. The highlight of the week was the 12th ESLHO Symposium titled 'New Developments in flow cytometry, immunogenetics and MRD assessment', with speakers from all over the world. During the day there was a special Poster Session where visitors could stay informed of the latest developments of the laboratories involved and the entrants could win the Special Poster Prize. This year's winner was Kerry Wall with her poster entitled: ‘Molecular residual disease analysis in a high throughput laboratory setting: Can automated DNA extraction of total white blood cells effectively substitute for DNA obtained via mononuclear cell separation?’

New Perspective on implementation of the IVDR in diagnostic labs


At the EHA2022 Congress, an EHA-IVDR session was held in which the local implementation of the IVDR was discussed. This resulted in a publication in HemaSphere with the title: “Experience With IVDR Implementation in Three Diagnostic Laboratories: Messages to EU Health Institutions, Diagnostic Healthcare Payers, and Authorities.” ESLHO, which is one of the Specialized Working Groups of the European Hematology Association (EHA), has contributed to both the 2022 EHA-IVDR session and this recent publication. The perspective summarizes the EHA-IVDR session, in which laboratory professionals from three different EU countries shared their experiences with local implementation of the IVDR. Messages to different stakeholders, aimed at supporting further IVDR implementation, are included at the end of the publication.
