The range for histotechs "doing other tasks" is from 200 to 78,300 slides/year (1 to 301 slides/day).
The threshold from 99 laboratories is 9,500 slides/year = 37 slides/day per histotech.

I'm hoping some of the larger hospitals out there will share their data with me.
I'm curious as to how labs are staffed for doing IF/IHC/CISH. 
A small portion of our staining protocols still require pretreatment by hand, but we run instruments that do the pretreatments on board for the majority of our stains.
We have 2 IHC techs, 1 on 1st shift and 1 on 3rd shift.Together they are cutting and staining between 200-350 slides per day. I think this is a high volume for only two people. What do you all think?
