Laboratory technologists work on short- or longterm research projects as well as supporting educational projects. Laboratory staff ensure quality control, handle safety issues on a daily basis, as well as the technical maintenance of instruments and equipment. Laboratory technologists are also helpful in regards of purchasing consumables, and carrying out method optimization and development in collaboration with scientific researchers.
