Working In A Laboratory
Testing of diseases is carried out in a laboratory using lab equipment and then proper treatment is carried out. Some of the samples that are tested in laboratories include urine, blood, and other fluids. Tissue can also be tested in the laboratory as well as other substances. In laboratories, you will find experts such as general lab technicians and medical lab technologists.
A medical technologist performs in-depth work and they need a lot of education, unlike a general lab technician who performs work that is not as complicated. 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. 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.
The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians use special laboratory equipment such as microscopes and other equipment when they 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. The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists will then enter the data that they have collected from the tests into a patient’s records.
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.
Training of laboratory technicians at LifeBrite Laboratories is carried out by medical laboratory technologists. Supervision of lab work is carried out by medical laboratory technologists at LifeBrite Laboratories. Supervision must be done by people who have the experience and knowledge and medical laboratory technologists have both of these.
In some laboratories, one will find laboratory managers who carry out supervision. 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. One may need to get advanced training in order to specialize in some of these areas.
