As a biomedical scientist, you would normally work in a laboratory. You would use computers and hi-tech lab equipment to test and analyse biological samples. You would specialise in one of three areas:
- infection sciences
- blood sciences
- cellular sciences.
Depending on your chosen area, your duties could include:
- testing for diseases such as Legionnaires’ disease and food poisoning
- screening and testing for infectious diseases such as rubella or hepatitis
- analysing blood for disease and monitoring organ function
- supporting the blood transfusion and transplant service through blood grouping and matching
- screening for blood abnormalities and diseases – testing for anaemia and leukaemia
- processing and analysing tissue samples from operations and autopsies
- using specialist procedures such as cell culture to detect cancer
- routine testing of fluid and tissue samples such as cervical smear tests
- updating paperwork or computerised systems with data and test results.
You would also be involved in carrying out new research, and would often support junior staff and technicians.
