3 Common Misconceptions About Being a Food Laboratory Technician

This month Cherney features Kea Schmuhl, one of our dedicated Sample Preparations Technicians who looks to clear up some of the misconceptions about working in a testing laboratory.  Thank you to Kea for her insight and unique perspective!

When people ask me what I do for a living and I say, “I’m a Sample Preparation Technician,” or work in a “Food Safety Testing Laboratory” they often make generalized assumptions. These thoughts tend to be based on the stereotypes they have seen on TV or read in a book portraying laboratory technicians.  However, quite a few of these assumptions are not the case when describing my role as a Sample Preparation Technician at Cherney.
