  • Performing tests only as authorized by the director and the technician's licensed specialty.
  • Following the laboratory's procedures for specimen handling and running tests
  • Participating in proficiency testing and demonstrating that proficiency samples are tested in the same manner as patient samples
  • Following quality control and instrument calibration policies
  • Documenting corrective action taken when results exceed the laboratory's acceptable performance values
  • Identifying potential problems with tests or report results
  • Notifying a technologist or supervisor if results are outside the laboratory's acceptable performance levels
