Phlebotomy Technician


Phlebotomy is often a stepping stone to other positions available in
the medical field. The development of new diagnostic techniques,
clinical laboratory technology and automated instruments has
greatly increased the volume of laboratory testing. As a result, the
Phlebotomy Technician has emerged with a greater role in
facilitating the specimen collection process and is an integral
member of the clinical
laboratory team.

The main function for this vital laboratory member is to obtain
patients' blood specimens by venipuncture and micro collection
techniques and to facilitate the collection and transportation of other
clinical specimens.
