Maintain Laboratory Records

Testing work is not complete until the results of the tests have been entered into the laboratory's record system, ready for reporting to the client. Part of this job includes entering data into a computer database for storage and later retrieval as necessary.

It is very important, especially for technicians working in a clinical laboratory, to be aware of the need to ensure that clients' test results are kept confidential. To assist in this, test results are held in secure systems that control the access of personnel to the results.

There are two tasks you will be undertaking in this section.

1. Record test results
2. Maintain confidentiality and security of results.

Complete each task in order, following the steps and instructions.
