Laboratory Technician Jobs FAQs

Can A Laboratory Technician Make 100k?

Yes, you can make $100,000 per year as a laboratory technician. It is highly unlikely to earn over $100k because the average annual salary for a laboratory technician is $37,512. Even laboratory technicians in higher-paid positions do not typically earn more than $50,000 per year. For example, laboratory technicians in Alaska whose salaries are in the 90th percentile earn an average salary of $119,000.

How Much Money Do Laboratory Technicians Make?

Laboratory technicians make $41,000 a year, on average. This salary depends upon the experience of the technician and the location of the employer.

Entry-level laboratory technicians will make less than the national average with some making as little as $20,000. However, only 17% of laboratory technicians make under $30,000 per year.

What Qualifications Do You Need To Work In A Lab?

The qualifications you need to work in a lab vary depending on the state and the specific employer. Some states and employers have very specific requirements while others are less so.

There are twelve states that require anyone working in a lab as a technician to hold a certification in the field of Laboratory Technology. To earn this certification, a candidate must have an associate's degree from an approved program and pass the certification exam. Montana, in addition to certification, requires all technicians to take an additional fourteen hours of education to maintain their license. Other states like New York require all technicians hold a bachelor's degree in lab technology but they do not require certification.
