Clinical Laboratory Scientists (CLS), perform with minimum supervision routine procedures and the most advanced procedures in at least one laboratory section or all of the routine and difficult procedures in all laboratory sections. CLS perform clinical analysis on human blood, various body fluids, and selected other specimens. The Clinical Lab Values obtained are used by physicians for diagnosis, therapeutic monitoring, and treatment of their patients. The testing is performed utilizing automated an semi-automated instruments as well as many manual tests requiring significant judgment and skill. The CLS must be able to calibrate instruments, perform required control procedures and ensure that patient results are only reported when systems are within prescribed control guidelines. In addition, CLS must possess the ability to troubleshoot instrumentation and to repair minor problems. A working knowledge of the Laboratory Information System, data entry, and verification procedures, is a necessity.
Clinical Lab Scientists must be able to prioritize the workload and ensure that STAT test turn around times are minimized and that critical values reach the physicians or nursing station, in a timely manner.
The work and all procedures must conform to strict guidelines that have been developed by various Government and private agencies.
