Working In A Laboratory
Working in laboratories involves the use of lab equipment to test for diseases and treat the diseases. In the laboratory, testing of samples such as urine, blood, and other fluids is carried out. Tissue can also be tested in the laboratory as well as other substances. General lab technicians and medical lab technologists are some of the people you will find working in a laboratory.
General lab technicians do not need as much education as medical lab technologists because they do not perform in-depth work. Medical lab technologist needs to get a bachelor’s degree and even a masters degree in some cases. The reason why laboratories are very important is that they are used by doctors to test for specific illnesses or determine what other illnesses a patient may suffer from.
Some of the work that goes on at LifeBrite Laboratories is the analysis of body fluids as well as tissue samples. After analysis has been carried out, the lab technicians at LifeBrite Laboratories may find normal findings but sometimes they may get abnormal findings and all this must be recorded. When a LifeBrite Laboratories technician studies blood samples, they will look for the number of cells, check whether blood is compatible with other blood types, and check the blood type.
When carrying out tests, LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists, use special laboratory equipment such as microscopes and other equipment to carry out tests. The advantage of using automated equipment is that it helps in carrying out the tests faster. Some of the computerized equipment of LifeBrite Laboratories is used for carrying out many tests at once. After collection of data from the medical tests, the information will then be entered into the patient’s records by the LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists.
Doctors may discuss some of the findings that they get from the LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists especially in cases where there are abnormal results.
At LifeBrite Laboratories, training of laboratory technician is carried out by medical laboratory technologists. The medical laboratory technologists at LifeBrite Laboratories also carry out supervision of lab work. Supervision must be done by people who have the experience and knowledge and medical laboratory technologists have both of these.
Laboratory managers can also carry out supervision and they can be found in some laboratories. There are specialized medical laboratory technologists who work in large laboratories and one will find immunology technologists, clinical chemistry technologist, blood bank technologist, cytotechnologist among others when they go to the large laboratories. specialization in these areas may come as a result of one choosing to specialize in one area after they have worked in the laboratory for a time. It is important for one to get advanced training if they want to specialize in the areas that are listed above.
