Histopathology is vital in health services as diseased condition brings about injury, distortion and destruction of tissues. No technician should lose sight of pathogenesis and subsequent clinical conditions in exploring tissue samples. Hence, efficient and committed laboratory professionals within a functioning histopathology lab play a prime role in clinical diagnosis. Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902), the father of microscopic pathology, marked the beginning of a new era in Histopathology. Over the years, histotechniques have developed extensively as a science, both in its expanse and depth. A truly cutting edge is the ability to implant its various techniques in the digital domain and advancements in diagnostic tools necessitates an in-depth analysis by lab personnel. Our experience with our own students of medical lab technology suggests that the simplified diagnostic protocol in the text book is a critical component in determining how well medical lab technicians grasp the material - particularly for complex, multistep processes and allows them to perform experiments without reference to any secondary source.
