Medical Laboratory Professionals Week 2023

Home - Medical Laboratory Professionals Week 2023

 

Medical Laboratory Professionals week is taking place from 23rd – 29th April 2023. This is an annual celebration to highlight and acknowledge the contribution of medical laboratory professionals and pathologists to medicine and healthcare. Whether carrying out routine testing or performing vital analysis during states of emergency, patients around the world rely on the hard work and dedication of medical laboratory professionals.

Medical laboratory professionals’ and pathologists’ work often goes unnoticed due to the ‘behind the scenes’ nature of their activities, but today we would like to shine a light on their work and highlight the importance of these individuals to medicine and global health. The role laboratory professionals play in healthcare cannot be understated and Randox would like to give thanks to those around the world who undertake this responsibility every day.

For most people, the process after a sample is taken is largely enigmatic. Therefore, we at Randox would like to elucidate the processes involved and the considerable effort displayed by laboratory staff.

After a sample is taken, it is then transported to a laboratory. Even this supposedly simple process requires careful consideration to ensure the sample is suitable for testing upon reaching the laboratory.  Once received, laboratory staff carry out quality control checks to ensure the instrumentation to be used is functioning correctly and providing accurate results. The quality control procedure will differ depending on the scientific discipline but some form of validation of the test process is always required.

Once accurate and robust sample analysis has been carried out a pathologist examines these results or data and works to form a diagnosis. Using this diagnosis, a suitable therapeutic strategy can be determined and administered.

Test results are a major factor in a clinician’s decision for diagnosis and treatment, with 70% of all medical decisions being based on laboratory results. This demonstrates why diagnostics are so important and why Randox believes in celebrating those who make it happen.

As a major contributor to the diagnostics and healthcare industry, we are keenly aware of how important and hard-working medical laboratory professionals are, and the value they bring to the world. This week you’ll find articles featuring a short interview with a medical laboratory professional and a short educational piece on pre-analytical errors.

We hope everyone shares our enthusiasm for celebrating medical laboratory professionals and would like to thank all those who work tirelessly in medical laboratories around the world.
