Lab technicians are specially trained in these areas and may work within an independent laboratory, medical center, hospital, or health clinic. They perform quality, diagnostic, and medical research using the latest in software, reference systems, products, and lab supplies. Some of the equipment can get very expensive, such as mass spectrometers, electron microscopes, and other instruments. Professionals also use a variety of lab supply items, such as beakers, valves, and test tubes. Clinical laboratories offer a wide range of clinical tests for the medical community, either directly though patients or through doctors and healthcare providers. They provide routine testing via software in order to come up with a conclusive diagnosis through plenty of analysis. Applications can include forensic science, pathology, and phlebotomy, all utilizing various techniques, methods, testing products, and new and used equipment.

But in general, clinical labs are used to test specimens to get information about a patient's health. This involves not only diagnosis but also treatment and prevention of particular diseases or disorders. Subsets of clinical labs may include anatomic pathology, clinical microbiology, hematology, and even genetics. Toxicology, in particular, tests for drugs of all kinds, from recreational to pharmaceutical. As another example, surgical pathology staff members examine body parts like organs, limbs, fetuses, tissues and even tumors after surgeons have removed them for biopsy. Lab technicians often have research assistants to aid them in their jobs.
