1) What are the responsibilities of Laboratory Technician?
Responsibilities of clinical lab technician varies with the department you are assigned to, but usually it involves
2) Explain what is GLP?
GLP means Good Laboratory Practice. It is a framework or pattern under which research work are planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and archived.
3) Explain why GLP is followed in the lab?
4) What are the common errors done by technician while handling pipette?
5) Why pipetting training is crucial for clinical technician?
By having a proper pipette training, always helps to minimize the risk of volume variability caused by Operators, also a small fraction of the change in pipetting can give you the wrong result.
6) Define what is Aliquot?
An aliquot is the known amount of homogeneous material, used to minimize the sampling error. It is usually used when fractional part is an exact divisor of the whole.
7) What are the different techniques for placing samples in micro-scope?
Different techniques used for placing samples under micro-scope are
8) What are different sterilization methods used in laboratory?
The most common methods of sterilization practised in lab are
9) Explain what is the difference between sterilization and disinfection?
10) Explain what is gas sterilization?
In gas sterilization chemicals like ethylene oxide and mixture based on the substance are used for sterilizing substances. They are highly flammable and potentially explosive in nature; they are mixed with inert gases to neutralize their explosive nature.
11) What are the factors on which the gas sterilization depends on?
Gas sterilization depends on factors like
12) Explain what clinical lab audit is and what are the areas you can do clinical audit?
A clinical lab audit is done in order to maintain and operate the lab at a standard level.
The area that includes in clinical audit are
13) Explain what is laboratory centrifuges?
Laboratory Centrifuge is primarily used for testing liquids and substances for clinical trial samples. This device uses the centrifugal force to separate the liquids from the main sample or mixture.
14) Explain what is supernatant?
When sample is rotated into centrifuge, it will separate the mixture according to the density. Supernatant is the upper layer found in the sample after it is run into centrifuge.
15) What are the steps you can take to avoid imbalance in centrifuge?
To avoid an imbalance in centrifuge it requires
16) What is blank?
Blank term is used to refer the sample tube which does not contain the analyte.
17) Explain what is Calibration Curve?
Calibration curve is the relationship between the various concentration of analyte in a suitable solvent or matrix and the signal response of the instrument.
18) Explain what is co-chromatography?
Co-chromatography is the procedure used to detect an unknown substance by comparing the chromatic comparison with a known substance.
19) What do you mean by a confirmatory test?
For unambiguous identification of drug or metabolites in the sample, alternative chemical method is used also known as a second test.
20) Explain what is a positive control?
Positive control is a specimen having the analyte at a concentration above a specific limit.
21) Explain what is dynamic range?
It is defined as a range over which a relationship exists between assay response and analyte concentration.
