Thea Ann Malacad • Licensed Medical Technologist • Drug Analyst

Hi, I’m Thea Ann Malacad, a licensed drug analyst and medical technologist with 10 years of medical industry working experience in the Philippines and the Middle East.

I’m a well-rounded Lab Scientist and Drug Analyst with more than 15,000 hours experience analyzing specimens on all hospital lab departments. Most of my laboratory experience involves working as a Generalist assigned in the fields of chemistry, hematology, serology, blood bank and microbiology. My strong experience has allowed me to be chosen as a Research Medical Scientist in the Department of Health Research Institute for Tropical Medicine for Dengue vaccine studies.

I have recently earned my certification in Drug Analysis and have rendered as a Chief Medical Technologist for years in a private diagnostic laboratory setting. As a former Clinical Applications Specialist, I’m also trained to troubleshoot laboratory machine errors. This sets me apart from most Med Techs in the industry as machine errors are a common problem that greatly affects the productivity of most laboratories. I consider myself as a highly-trainable fast learner who works hard on improving my skills to deliver high quality results.
