What do Phlebotomists and Lab Assistants?

Medical laboratory assistants have duties that include running lab tests and preparing specimens. Lab assistants may also be responsible for planting microbiology specimens, performing routine and specialized tests, preparing and staining slides for analysis, recording testing information, cleaning and restocking the lab facility, keeping inventory, and ordering lab supplies.

Phlebotomists are the health care professionals who draw blood, ensuring that the proper amount is taken and that all blood is properly labeled.  Although their main responsibility is drawing blood and preparing it for lab testing, Phlebotomists are also responsible for collecting specimens of other bodily fluids for testing as well.
