Working In A Laboratory

Working in laboratories involves the use of lab equipment to test for diseases and treat the diseases. Some of the samples that are tested in laboratories include urine, blood, and other fluids. Laboratories also carry out testing on tissue and many other substances. The people who work in laboratories are general lab technicians and medical lab technologists.

The work of a general technician is not as complicated as the work of a medical technologist and this is why the medical technologists need more education to perform the job. Medical lab technologist needs to get an education to a degree level and even advance to a masters level. 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. LifeBrite Laboratories then record the normal findings as well as the abnormal findings if there are any after analysis has been carried out. Another job that a LifeBrite Laboratories technician will perform is studying of blood samples to look for the blood type, the number of cells, and check whether the blood is compatible with other blood types.

The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians use special laboratory equipment such as microscopes and other equipment when they carry out tests. Some of the special equipment they use is automated and it helps in carrying out the tests faster. LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists are also capable of performing many tests at the same time using some of the computerized equipment. The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists will then enter the data that they have collected from the tests into a patient’s records.

In abnormal patterns in a patient’s test, the LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists will need to discuss the findings with doctors.
Medical laboratory technologists carry out training of technicians at LifeBrite Laboratories. Supervision of lab work is carried out by medical laboratory technologists at LifeBrite Laboratories. This is because they have the experience and knowledge that is required to monitor activities in the laboratory.

Supervision can also be carried out by laboratory managers when one goes to some laboratories. In large laboratories medical laboratory technologist specialize in different areas and one may find immunology technologists, clinical chemistry technologist, blood bank technologist, cytotechnologist among others. It takes time before one can be able to specialize in the different areas. It is important for one to get advanced training if they want to specialize in the areas that are listed above.
