What is a workday like at a medical lab technician job?

When working in a medical lab technician job, you will have to complete a number of different tasks over the course of a day. A medical lab technician will generally spend part of her day collecting samples from patients. These could be tissue samples or samples of bodily fluids. The lab technician will then take the samples back to the lab and perform tests on them. She may have to examine the samples through a microscope or use some other type of medical equipment in order to evaluate it. Lab technicians play a vital role in diagnosing medical conditions.
