Interesting Biochemical Industry Exposure
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Mansfield, MA – December 21, 2015
This internship revealed the job world to me and allowed for an of exposure to the biochemical tools available researchers and clinical technicians for molecular diagnostics. This position also helped bring the industrial side of chemistry into full light.
A typical day included lab cleaning, work in manufacturing, following diagnostic sops for product verification and quality assurance, and lab restock. I learned how to work with a variety of chemists, engineers and administration to execute all functions of laboratory testing, sop development and maintain the laboratory environment. Hardest part of the job was working repetitive motion jobs such as pipetting and labeling. The job was very rewarding when operating the diagnostic intrument: Modaplex. Understanding the theory of their real time pcr CE machine was quite fascinating.
