Phlebotomy is the practice of drawing blood from patients and taking the blood specimens to the laboratory to prepare for testing. Phlebotomy technicians work in hospitals, physician offices and other health facilities, and are an important member of the clinical laboratory team. Duties of a phlebotomy technician may include drawing blood, preparing specimens for storage or testing, assembling equipment and verifying patients’ records. A phlebotomist may also conduct patient interviews and screen donors at a blood bank.
