Re No. 2, the "usual" responsibilities are many.  There are no formal
training programs for cytopreparatory technicians, at least to my knowledge.
All are trained on the job with all attendant reservations and limitations.
They are supervised by cytotechnologists whose own technical training is
cook book-like.  Their work is significantly undervalued and its value can
not be overemphasized.  Cytology preparations, moreso than histo ones,
require proper processing to be as useful as they can be.  Quality outcomes
require quality processes.  The work of cytoprep techs can make
microscopists lives easy or hard.  Treat them nicely.
