The bug is once again making its way through LMP labs and offices, showcasing the personal side of laboratory staff. Check out the photo Q&As in this series to learn a little more about your colleagues.
This week the Q&A BUG paid a visit to Toronto General Hospital’s Core Laboratory and ‘infected’ Megan Spencer, Senior Technologist, Immunology. The nomination came from our previous Q&A BUG ‘victim,’ Emmanuelle Chung. You can check out Emmanuelle’s photo Q&A HERE.
As a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Immunology, Megan is responsible for testing various patient samples for special proteins, and signs of autoimmune disorders. Many patients come from Princess Margaret’s myeloma clinics, but throughout any given day Megan will test patient samples coming from across UHN, as well as many from external organizations who count on LMP for referral testing.
In addition to all Megan’s clinical work – she also played a lead role in the recent video series produced by LMP and the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science that highlights the work MLTs perform ‘In The Lab.’ So if you want to get an inside look at what’s involved in Immunology testing – take a look at Megan’s Protein Electrophoresis video HERE.
