Travel Laboratory Technician FAQs

What are the best agencies for Laboratory Technician jobs?

The agencies on Vivian that currently have the most Laboratory Technician jobs are OneStaff Medical (273), MedPro Healthcare Allied Staffing (163), and Cross Country Allied (131).

What is a Medical Lab Tech?

Medical lab techs, sometimes called clinical lab techs, are allied health professionals who collect samples and perform complex lab tests and procedures that help physicians and other healthcare professionals detect, diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases. Rapidly changing technology and a shortage of skilled laboratory professionals has resulted in a shortage for this field. The demand for medical lab techs is projected to grow 11% by 2028, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with growth primarily attributed to an aging population and increased prenatal testing.

What does a medical lab tech do?

Medical lab techs are tasked with a variety of duties that vary based on where they work and the primary goals of the work being performed. Some of the tasks they commonly perform include:

  • Setting up, maintaining, and calibrating lab equipment

  • Operating sophisticated lab equipment

  • Collecting blood, tissue, urine, and other samples from patients

  • Preparing reagents or solutions to combine with samples

  • Analyzing blood, tissue, urine, and other samples

  • Recording findings from medical tests

  • Entering results into patients’ medical records

  • Discussing results with physicians or other health care professionals

Where do medical lab tech work?

Medical lab techs work in medical laboratories, but these labs exist in various settings. Employers may include general medical and surgical hospitals, private practices, outpatient care centers, health care clinics, independent medical, and diagnostic labs. Where medical lab techs work may also depend on whether they specialize in a certain area, such as phlebotomy, immunology, blood bank, pathology, cytotechnology, microbiology or histotechnology. 

What skills make a good medical lab tech?

Good medical lab techs have strong backgrounds in math and science, and precise technical skills to effectively fulfill a variety of laboratory-based tasks. Top technical skills include in-depth knowledge of laboratory equipment and testing, microbiology, chemistry, phlebotomy, quality control, data entry, and occupational health and safety. They excel at using computers, electronics, and medical software, including electronic medical records, laboratory information system, and test result delivery software. Med techs also have numerous transferable skills, including attention to detail, organization, written and verbal communication, analytical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and multitasking.

How to become a Travel Medical Lab Tech?

Medical lab technicians generally only need an associate degree from a program accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science or a certificate from a vocational or technical school or hospital program. However, some employers require med techs to have a bachelor’s degree and clinical lab technologists need at least a bachelor’s degree.

Several states also require licensure or certification for medical techs. Certification as a medical laboratory technician is possible through the American Society for Clinical Pathology or American Medical Technologist. Most states use ASCP Board of Certification examinations for licensing purposes. Most medical facilities require one to two years of laboratory experience before transitioning to travel medical lab tech positions.

What certifications are commonly held by Medical Lab technicians?

Medical Lab technicians may hold MLT (ASCP) - Medical Laboratory Technician among others.
