Very good everything you said EXCEPT for "Post-doc are not tech and never will be" because anybody and everybody that is willing to learn and pay attention to what they do CAN and WILL become a good tech.
Being a tech is NOT a genetic trait within the great scheme of evolution, you know?

We receive tissue from researchers that was fixed in PFA. It goes into 10%
NBF once it hits the processor. Sort of becomes s moot point for us. A lot
of times it's a result of reading a VERY old paper or method (or so
