The Wage Landscape in Clinical Laboratories

Wages for technicians, technologists, and scientists in the fields of clinical or medical laboratory medicine have risen steadily in comparison to other lab occupational titles as the field continues to attract a younger, predominantly female base.


Ref Interval Verification

After getting cited by a CAP inspector for not verifying reference intervals, a lab is asking others for advice, especially since it is difficult to verify reference intervals for every analyte (such as for therapeutic drug monitoring and body fluids). One respondent shared an article on body fluid reference intervals, while another respondent said that he uses the family practice outpatient department results tabulated from the LIS. This provides a very large population of data for each test.
