The advances of science and technology cannot and should not be stopped. These are the beginnings of the XXIst century and in the same way that many (most) highly manual manufacturing jobs that left our soil to not return, in the same way histotechs have to learn new working ways, new technologies.
We cannot remain static hopping that our jobs will remain as they were yesterday or are now.
In the same way that old workers need to retrain to survive, histotechs need also to train and embrace the new technologies.
We cannot expect that if a diagnostic can be made quicker and better using a new molecular or genetic techniques the pathologists are not going to use and remain committed to the traditional ways just to "save" our positions.
It is the law of life: adapt or perish!

With mixed emotions I read this article, not because of its context or information, but rather the outlook for our future.  

I would like to pole on the histonet today, who is enter in:

1.  Digital Pathology
2.  Molecular Testing (ISH, PCR, Next Gene Sequencing) 3.  Automation Semi to complete 4.  Barcoding 

A good question to ask is, are we, as Histology professionals, positioned to make this change.  Case in point, how many people are signed up and preparing for this transition at the NSH convention this year?
