LMP Q&A BUG: Jaimelyn Rara



The LMP Q&A BUG has been getting around lately, with the last three ‘infections’ occurring at Toronto General, Toronto Western and this week at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Jaimelyn Rara, hematology lab technologist was this week’s victim and the nomination came from friend, Selene Fernando in Transfusion Medicine. You can find Selene’s photo Q&A series: HERE.

As a hematology lab technologist, Jaimelyn handles and tests patient samples on a daily basis. The lab specializes in testing for blood clotting mechanisms and blood and bone marrow disorders, such as anemia and leukemia. Jaimelyn and other technologists in the hematology lab will also analyze samples under a microscope to identify possible malignant cells or cells tied to disorders. In addition to the regular duties of a hematology lab technologist, Jaimelyn is also a member of the designated core lab technologist group for viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF) testing, and trained to conduct testing on possible Ebola patient samples.
