I don't know how this will figure in but you can take it for what it's worth
to you.....
We do about 6500 Surgicals, 7500 Thinprep PAPs, 2000 Conventional smears
(sent to reference lab), and 600 NGYNs
We have 5 ftes that include 1 Cytologist and myself.  One person embeds then
does Cytology processing the rest of the day.  I spend about 70% of my time
on the bench.  Over the past year our immunos have increased 82% and our
routine stains have gone up 15%.
