Cytology preparation was added to the HT (ASCP) exam back in 2001 based on 
feedback on the number of laboratories that have histotechnicians doing 
cytology preparation.  It was also added as a new chapter in the 
Carson/Hladik Histotechnology text book.

[Histonet] histo techs doing cyto prep work

Hi all,
I'm curious!! How many of you histotechs are being trained or already know 
how to do cyto prep work? And how many of you histo supervisors are now 
supervising cytology labs in addition to the histology lab? 
Is cross training histotechs to be cyto prep techs (in addition to their 
histo job) becoming more popular?
I welcome any and all responses...
