Irving, TX (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Grey Stone Laboratories, based in Irving, Texas, is pleased to discuss the career opportunities available in their field. At the Grey Stone labs in Texas, due to the many different medical tests conducted, the company requires many different medical laboratory technicians as a part of their team.
Medical laboratory technologists act as disease detectors. Most physicians request biological samples, taken from their patients, to be tested in a laboratory. Using test tubes, fluid samples, and laboratory testing equipment, medical laboratory technologists perform these tests to confirm the presence or lack of a medical condition or to determine that additional tests are needed to pinpoint the cause.
Histotechnologists are a necessary part of the team at Grey Stone Laboratories as well. Histotechnologists collect and examine any tissue removed from the body during surgery, be it a tumor or just the tonsils. They prepare samples of the tissue for viewing under a microscope and work alongside medical doctors to diagnose patients, thereby having a direct and vital 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 evidence of disease, including cancer. Physicians or other medical technicians will obtain these cells from patients (through natural shedding, scraping, or aspiration) and pass them to these lab-based professionals. Cytotechnologists are responsible for examining, for example, the results of Pap smears but can also detect cancer and precancerous cells in any other part of the body.
MLTs (or medical laboratory technicians) usually work in a lab running diagnostic tests for cases involving AIDS, cancer, diabetes, and infectious diseases. Medical lab technicians generally do not work as closely with physicians as histotechnologists or cytotechnologists. They are typically employed under the supervision of a lab manager or medical technologist. In companies such as Grey Stone, lab managers, and compliance officers are integral parts of their team who are responsible for maintaining the high standards necessary in the field of medical care. A pathologists’ assistant is another available career path. Working under pathologists, the assistants are highly trained in managing surgical teams and processes.
