One of the ways to detect diseases is by testing them in a laboratory using lab equipment and then treatment can follow. Urine, blood, and other fluids are some of the samples that are tested in laboratories. 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 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.
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.
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. Some of the computerized equipment of LifeBrite Laboratories is used for carrying out many tests at once. All the data that is collected from the test that is carried out is entered into a patient’s records and this is the work of LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists.
The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists may discuss some of the results with a doctor especially if there is an abnormal pattern in the tests.
At LifeBrite Laboratories, training of laboratory technician is carried out by medical laboratory technologists. At LifeBrite Laboratories, the supervision of lab work is carried out by medical laboratory technologists. 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.
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. Medical laboratory technologists and technicians may choose to specialize after they have worked in the laboratory for a while. It is important for one to get advanced training if they want to specialize in the areas that are listed above.
