	Dear Histonetters,
	I realize that this question was just posed not too
	long ago but I missed some of the responses. So, to
	repeat: I need statistics on productivity/workload for
	Histotechs. We average 12-13,000 specimens per year,
	cut on the average 150-200 blocks per day in addition
	to embedding,staining, labelling and distributing
	slides, special stains from 5:30am to 11:00am. One
	tech will embed, stain, label slides while two others
	cut beginning at 6:30 and 7:00am. If one of these
	three people is absent we do have contigent coverage
	if there is advanced notice. We bought three motorized
	microtomes and to do so, gave up one FTE (against my
	better judgement). It is budget time and I need to
	justify an 0.5 FTE to help in the morning. Any
	statistics you are willing to share with me that will
	help me in my mission will be very appreciated. You
	may email me or FAX me at 248-471-8250. Thank you in
	advance for your help and, hopefully, support and
	Carla Frenchko
