Hi Beatrice:
Some months ago I reviewed different sources (US Dept Labor; US Dept.
Commerce;ASCP) and got to the figure of about 1.4 to 2.0 histotechs per
pathologist. This, as any other average, is "not written in stone" and
has to vary between laboratories. Of the laboratories I personally know
the averages have been from 1 to 1, to 2.2 to 1 These figures will also
depend on the type of laboratory: laboratories in small hospitals will
probably will be closer to 1:1, in large reference laboratories,
although will have many more pathologists, the huge sample volume will
require the larger side of the scale (2 or 2:2 histotechs /

Here's a message Beatrice is having trouble posting to the list. 
Please email her or send your reply to the entire list (and not me
Thanks Linda M (Histonet administrator)


I would like to know what the ratio of how many histologists to a
Pathologist is. Does the ratio differ from hospitals to reference labs
to pharmaceutical labs? Your help is greatly appreciated.
