Abstract The performance of a fluorescent cytochemical oestrogen receptor (ER) assay has been compared with an established dextran‐coated charcoal ER assay in 85 cases of primary breast cancer. Both assays were performed on tissue samples from the same tumour, by independent observers in different laboratories. A good qualitative correlation between the two methods was found, with agreement in 92 per cent of cases (P < 0·0005). Criticisms of the fluorescein‐labelled oestrogen methods are discussed. It is concluded that such methods should be validated in each laboratory by comparison with a conventional, quantitative ER assay before being used for clinical decisions. Copyright
