The techs are placing the samples into the liquid handling robot and removing the caps. They will remove the samples at the end of the run and recap them and place into storage. They will also be moving 96 well plates from the liquid handler to the PCR platform and remove them for destruction once the PCR process is finished. There are few other minor tasks but this is the main activity. They need a bachelors degree and some basic wet lab experience. Familiarity with lab automation is a plus.
Laboratory technicians assist with the receiving, labeling, testing and analyzing of samples (blood, COVID, tissue, saliva, etc.) in a sterile environment. They assist in the design and execution of laboratory testing according standard procedures, as well as maintain accurate computer records of the process and results. They will be working with human samples that are potentially pathogenic and must follow all safety guidelines.
