The Biomedical Laboratory Technician

The Biomedical Laboratory Technician is an important job with a certain amount of responsibility; he or she is entrusted with the task of performing analyses on laboratory samples that the facility makes available to him or her; in addition, he or she is required to validate the results. Although the technician is assisted by increasingly sophisticated and complex instrumentation the final word on the outcome of the data obtained is his full responsibility. Continuous updating and constant research are characteristics that every good technician must possess.
