One of the three "biggies", I would have to say, of course, would be basic lab skills in instrumentation and maintenance, an ability to work with others and pitch in to a team spirit attitude. Patient empathy, ethics, attention to detail, and Cleanliness= good laboratory practices. I've worked in several labs, and was surprised at how many of the techs did not wear gloves and did not wash their hands.....nor clean their areaS to maintain a sterile field.
My, that's more than three....
