To All Medical Lab Professionals – Thank You!

This is National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, a time to mark the vital contribution of those who work behind the scenes.

This is National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, a time to mark the vital contribution of those who work behind the scenes.

We at Green Key Resources say THANK YOU to all the technicians, scientists and pathologists who fill such an important role in the current coronavirus crisis. You are the professionals analyzing patient samples to provide the critical clues for diagnosing and treating the COVID-19 disease.

Medical Laboratory Professional Week takes on a special significance this year, because of the critical work these healthcare workers are doing to fight the pandemic. While the rest of us maintain social distance, laboratory professionals handle the specimens from the sick and those who may be. They are the ones who analyze the test swabs and the blood samples.

They may not ever meet a patient, but they are as much a part of the frontline as the nurses and doctors and others who do.

Year round, their work informs doctors, nurses and researchers about the illness of their patients, confirming initial diagnoses or prompting the treatment team to reassess when the results differ.

All of these professionals have specialized training. Pathologists are physicians, sometimes called a “doctor’s doctor,” who analyze biopsies and the more complex analytical tests, particularly in difficult situations. Medical laboratory scientists, technologists and clinical laboratory scientists may perform many of the routine tests in a lab, but are most often involved in specialized testing and quality control. Many are specialists in a specific area such as hematology, cytogenetics, microbiology and immunology.

In most labs, it is the technicians who conduct the routine tests. They do most of the detective work, consulting with pathologists and laboratory scientists in unusual cases or complicated testing.

So think of these laboratory professionals this week and tweet your thanks with the #LabWeek tag.

Green Key Resources is grateful to all of the people working hard to fight this pandemic.
