Laboratory Animal Science Technician
Laboratory Animal Technicians are expected to have a deeper knowledge of animal care and laboratory procedures than Assistant Lab Animal Technicians. Although many of the duties are the same, they are often expected to work with minimal supervision. Laboratory Animal Technician duties may include: maintaining clinical records on animals under veterinary observation and treatment; performing routine clinical procedures on a variety of laboratory animal species, including animal restraint, handling, examinations, blood and tissue collection, calculation of dosage and administration of medications, diagnostic laboratory tests and sample preparation, radiology, and necropsy; performing procedures without close technical supervision in a clinical or laboratory animal setting; providing animal health care under veterinary supervision; and providing psychological and environmental enrichment to a variety of laboratory animal species. Certification is recommended, but not necessary for job placement.
