What is a Lab Technician?

Are you interested in being a lab technician? Then get ready for an exciting, unique, and always changing environment. Medical lab technicians, which are also referred to as medical laboratory scientists or clinical laboratory science professionals, are hardworking individuals that work behind the scenes testing samples for the absence or presence of a disease. Generally speaking, lab technicians typically do not interact with patients and instead are instructed which tests to perform based on the direction of the physicians or nurses.

Wondering what exactly lab technician testing looks like on a regular basis? Lab techs typically conduct tests on human bodily fluids, tissue samples, and/or cells. It really depends on what kind of sample the doctors or nurses collected for the lab tech to run tests on. One of the best things about being a lab tech is that no two days are the same. Your work will constantly change as different samples come across your microscope.

Becoming a Lab Technician

So, you’ve decided that you want to become a lab tech, but you’re not sure where to start. No problem! Allied Travel Careers is here to help. In order to become a medical lab tech, you’ll need a two-year associate degree. However, if you are interested in becoming a medical laboratory scientist/technologist you’ll need a bachelor’s degree. All candidates must obtain their education through the accredited American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science (ASCLS). Looking for an exciting and unique career that will keep you on your toes? Then considering becoming a lab technician!
