I can't answer your particular question, but it does raise another:  Should
the "grosser" carry professional liability insurance?  If a histotech (or
anyone else) working in a private lab loses a specimen for any reason, he
will more than likely be sued by someone.  Believe me, it happens!

I would address this issue and get something in writing before I ever
touched a specimen.

Does anyone know what the reqiurements are in the state of Florida for
histotechs grossing tissue? In particular, a private dermpath laboratory
with small skin biopsies.
What certifications, state licenses and/or college degree are required?
