The goal of the Sample Processing Lab (SPL) is to process, bank and distribute biospecimens for research. The SPL functions as a common biorepository for human biospecimens derived from patients who have consented to participate in clinical trials and research studies.
The Lab Assistant I works independently with limited direct supervision in preparing clinical specimens for shipment for ulterior analysis and for biobanking. Ability to troubleshoot quickly and under time-pressure is key, as sometimes more or less specimens than anticipated will be delivered to the laboratory, and given their valuable nature, they all need to be processed accurately while adapting the protocol on the spot. The Lab Assistant I is responsible for the correct inventorying of the biospecimens, whether this means banking them in house or shipping them to the right location for storage or analysis.
