        I don't know about hospital pay but in the biotech field as a histologist (not HTcertified ) I started at approximately $11.0/hr some 6 years ago. I do mostly Immuno (animals), Image Acquisition/Analysis, H+E, special stains, Cryosectioning/Cryomacrotome sectioning, some EM.

hope it helps

I am just curious as to the salaries that histo-techs are paid.  I work in a relatively small hospital-approx. 80 beds.  However, we do a tremendous amount of surgery cases.  I average around 40 blocks/day which may not sound like alot to most of you, but I am the only worker in my histology dept.  I do all of the manuals for my department, file, accessions, embed, cut and alot  of special stains.  I have been working in Histology for 9 years and have been ASCP board certified for 5.  Since this is the only hospital at which I have ever  worked, I really have no idea what other histo-techs are paid.  For all I know, I could really be getting taken.  Thanks for any responses you may offer.
