Irving, July 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Gray Stone Laboratories, based in Irving, Texas, is excited to speak about career opportunities in their field. At Gray Stone‘s laboratories in Texas, the company requires many different medical lab technicians to be part of its team due to the wide variety of medical tests being performed.
Medical laboratory technicians act as disease detectors. Most doctors require that biological samples taken from their patients be examined in a laboratory. Using test tubes, fluid samples, and laboratory testing equipment, medical laboratory technicians perform these tests to confirm the presence or absence of a medical condition, or to determine that additional testing is needed to determine the cause.
Histotechnologists are also a necessary part of the Gray Stone Laboratories team. Histotechnologists collect and examine any tissue removed from the body during surgery, be it a tumor or just the tonsils. You prepare tissue samples for viewing under a microscope and work with doctors to diagnose patients, thus having a direct and critical impact on a patient’s treatment plans and outcomes.
Anyone who has studied basic biology can agree that cells are the building blocks of life. Cytotechnologists, or cell detectives, spend their daily lives examining cells for signs of disease, including cancer. Doctors or other medical technicians obtain these cells from patients (through natural depositing, scraping, or suction) and pass them on to these laboratory professionals. For example, cytotechnologists are responsible for examining the results of Pap smears, but they can also detect cancer and precancerous cells in any other part of the body.
MLTs (or medical lab technicians) usually work in a laboratory that does diagnostic tests for cases of AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and infectious diseases. Medical technicians usually do not work as closely with doctors as histo- or cytotechnologists. They are usually used under the supervision of a laboratory manager or medical technician. In companies like Gray Stone, laboratory managers and compliance officers are integral parts of their team who are responsible for maintaining high standards in the field of medical care. An assistant to a pathologist is another possible career path. The assistants work under pathologists and are well trained in leading surgical teams and processes.
