Why Laboratories Are Important
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. Laboratories also carry out testing on tissue and many other substances. General lab technicians and medical lab technologists are some of the people you will find working in a laboratory.
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. A bachelor’s degree is required for a medical lab technologist and sometimes advanced education to a masters degree. 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. 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. When there is a need to carry out many tests at the same time, the LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists can be able to do this with special equipment that is computerized. The LifeBrite Laboratories technicians and technologists will then enter the data that they have collected from the tests into a patient’s records.
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. 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.
Supervision can also be carried out by laboratory managers when one goes to some laboratories. 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. Medical laboratory technologists and technicians may choose to specialize after they have worked in the laboratory for a while. Advanced training may be required for one to be able to specialize in some of the areas listed above.
