Histotechnology Training Center

Histotechnicians, Histologic Technicians and Histotechnologist are all experienced laboratory personnel that prepare human or animal tissue samples for microscopic examination by the pathologist. The microscopic slides created by these technicians assist pathologists in the detection of diagnosis of cancer and other pathological conditions.

Tissue samples are prepared and diagnosed through fixation, embedding, sectioning, and staining. 

These specialized technicians are detail oriented and use their fine motor skills to integrate theoretical knowledge with the completion of tissue preparation for a specific purpose.

Academic Initiatives Available Through HTC
