Generally speaking, Histotechnologists (HTL) is a work position reserved to those performing "high complexity tests", and histotechnician (HT) does not imply them.
  IHC is considered a "high complexity test, as DIF, INDIF, ISH, FISH, and TEM.

  I am a Florida licensed HT (ASCP). I'm planning to apply for work out of the
state and have seen jobs titled "Histotechnologist" and was curious if I am
eligible to apply for jobs with this title --if this term is only applied
for HTL credential holders. Or if it is applied to anyone who has
histotechnology experience (I believe someone had mentioned you dont have to
have HT or HTL credentials to work in the field in many states). Some job
listings state IHC duties and I'm guessing I can perform them as an HT
(ASCP) if I have experience or they are willing to train in IHC (unless
otherwise indicated that they are only looking for HTL candidates) Thanks
for any clarification on this.
