What is a Histotechnologist?
Histotechnologists are individuals technically trained to process tissue samples and perform various special staining techniques to assist pathologists in making their diagnosis. Histotechnologists usually possess a bachelor’s degree in a science related field. An additional year of special histology training either through coursework or on-the- job training is received before finally taking a board certification exam through the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
