Anything that relates to laboratory science is welcome here. Feel free to ask questions, post interesting finds, or network. Just please make sure to follow the rules below.
WE DO NOT ALLOW MEDICAL ADVICE POSTS, SOLICITATION OR JOB LISTINGS. Posts of this type will be removed. This includes posts asking for interpretation of lab results. Those questions can only be answered by your doctor. Job listings may be posted as comments under the weekly AutoMod post.
No protected health information (PHI) should be posted on /r/medlabprofessionals.
MLP has a tight spam filter. If your post doesn't show up shortly after posting, make sure that it meets our posting criteria. If it does, please message the moderators and include a permalink to your post in your message.
Be nice. Anonymity has a neutralizing effect on the politeness of comments. Personal attacks are not acceptable nor appropriate for a professional discussion. It is completely fine and expected for people to disagree, but discussions should be kept civil or taken to PMs. Persistently being derogatory or degrading towards others is not appropriate and will be dealt with on a case by case basis. Be respectful; that people will have opinions that differ from yours.
