The Activities That Take Place In The Laboratory

Testing of diseases is carried out in a laboratory using lab equipment and then proper treatment is carried out. 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. In laboratories, you will find experts such as general lab technicians and medical lab technologists.

General lab technicians do not need as much education as medical lab technologists because they do not perform in-depth work. A bachelor’s degree is required for a medical lab technologist and sometimes advanced education to a masters degree. The work that is carried out in a laboratory is very important because the tests can determine specific illnesses or they can be used by doctors to determine other illness of 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. 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. Some of the computerized equipment of LifeBrite Laboratories is used for carrying out many tests at once. 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.
Training of laboratory technicians at LifeBrite Laboratories 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. 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. It takes time before one can be able to specialize in the different areas. One may need to get advanced training in order to specialize in some of these areas.
