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. 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 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.
Analysis of body fluids and also tissue samples is the work that is carried out at LifeBrite Laboratories. 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.
When carrying out tests, LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists, use special laboratory equipment such as microscopes and other equipment to carry out tests. They may use automated equipment that will help in carrying out the tests. LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists are also capable of performing many tests at the same time using some of the computerized equipment. 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.
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. Due to the fact that they have the knowledge as well as their experience of working in the laboratory for a long time, they are the right people to carry out supervision.
Laboratory managers can also carry out supervision and they can be found in some laboratories. Immunology technologists, clinical chemistry technologist, blood bank technologist, cytotechnologist among others are some of the medical laboratory technologists who have specialized in different areas and they can be found in 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. One may need to get advanced training in order to specialize in some of these areas.
