INTRODUCTION The assay of endogenous erythroid colony formation (EEC), a characteristic of polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia, is not standardized. In this multicentric study, we tested four semisolid, serum-free, cytokine-free media based on either methylcellulose (M1, M2) or collagen (C1, C2) commercialized for the EEC assay.
