A laboratory professional, also known as a medical laboratory scientist or a medical laboratory technician, is responsible for collecting samples of tissue, fluids and other substances from patients, and testing it to create a proper diagnosis and offer treatment solutions. Necessary duties include analyzing blood, urine, tissue and other samples, studying blood samples for the purpose of blood transfusions, identifying types and numbers of cells, using automated and computerized equipment to help perform multiple tests at once, discussing findings with coworkers and physicians, and supervising other laboratory technicians. A laboratory professional, whether a technician or a technologist, must perform the tests that are ordered by physicians and surgeons. Depending on the size of the medical laboratory, some individuals may be asked to specialize in certain areas. Laboratory professionals can be blood bank technologists, immunology specialists, cytotechnologists, molecular biology technologists, and more. A laboratory scientist will be asked to work in an environment with other employees, where time-sensitive and hazardous materials are often part of the daily process.
Laboratory Education Requirements
Laboratory professionals are required to have a bachelor’s degree in life sciences or medical technology from an accredited four-year university.

Most states require a state-specific license to be acquired, and all laboratory professionals are required to be licensed from the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science. Aside from the necessary degrees and experience, a prospective laboratory scientist will want to have dexterity, physical stamina, technology intelligence and good attention to detail.
