Testing of diseases is carried out in a laboratory using lab equipment and then proper treatment is carried out. 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 an education to a degree level and even advance to a masters level. Doctors use the results that come from laboratories to determine the illness of a patient or to test for a specific illness in a patient.
At LifeBrite Laboratories, analysis of body fluids as well as tissue samples is done. After analysis, recording of the normal findings or even the abnormal findings is done. LifeBrite Laboratories technicians also study blood samples and look for things such as the blood type, number of cells, and check whether 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. 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. 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. 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.
In some laboratories, one will find laboratory managers who carry out supervision. 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. Advanced training may be required for one to be able to specialize in some of the areas listed above.
