CURRENTLY ENROLLING Cytology Laboratories with Image-assisted Screening Devices!


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ASCT Services, Inc. are looking for cytology laboratories that use computer-assisted screening devices (Hologic and/or Becton-Dickinson) to participate in a time measure study to be conducted between November 2014 and June 2015.  We are looking to enroll 100 cytotechnologists in this study.  This is a unique opportunity for cytotechnologists to provide data that will be used by CMS, FDA, and CDC to evaluate current workload maximums for screening using a imaging device.


If you took the Cytology Workload Practices survey in March 2014, the time measure study is a continuation of this two-part study.  If you are interested in participating or learning more, please send an email to  We look forward to hearing from you!


Frequently asked questions about the time measure study can be found on the ASCT Services, Inc. website.


This study is supported by a contract (200-2013-57614) funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.
