Histotechnologists use the science of histology: the study of the cellular structure of cells, tissues, and organs through microscopic examination.

These members of the laboratory team will collect samples taken from surgeries, biopsies, or autopsies to collect tissue samples in order to create microscopic slides.

Using chemicals and scientific techniques, histotechnologists prepare slides to identify types of cancer, infections, or other diseases.
