Inside Clinical Laboratory Assisting

A clinical laboratory assistant plays a supporting role in preparing and testing specimens in a medical lab. Their responsibilities include tasks like examining cells under a microscope; using a centrifuge to separate blood cells and plasma; and running tests for disease detection using automated lab equipment.
