The Critical Role of a Medical Lab Technician

The Critical Role of a Medical Lab Technician

The Critical Role of a Medical Lab Technician

 

In celebration of Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, we are providing a resource to explain the importance of the Clinical laboratory science field. The article, Medical Laboratory Professionals: Who's Who in the Lab, simply breaks down the complex responsibilities that are involved with properly analyzing specimens and samples. 

Excel Courier's daily interactions with lab technicians and technologists, transporting specimens and supplies, have helped us understand the importance of a lab technician's job. The high-touch communication, thorough chain of custody, and urgency needed to ensure specimen integrity throughout the entire journey is critical to ensuring lab technicians can properly provide analysis for doctors and patients. Unfortunately, not everyone has that relationship. Every person who had their blood drawn or tissue sampled for diagnosis is directly impacted by a lab technician! 

The role of a Medical Lab Technician is critical, analytical, and intricate. Doctors in most fields of Medicine need technicians in order to provide proper diagnosis and interpretation of results.

Some examples are:

  • Collecting patient information and sample
  • Testing of samples
  • Analyzing, reporting, and documenting the results
  • Evaluating the data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment

Are you curious about the incredible list of what they are responsible for? If so, we encourage you to read the article in its entirety. Curious about how couriers work with lab technicians in healthcare logistics? Contact Excel Courier anytime to learn more.
