Laboratory sample collection is a crucial step in ensuring the quality and reliability of research results. However, there is often a gap between the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills of laboratory workers in this area. This paper evaluates the positive impact of training laboratory workers on the latest techniques in sampling, using a mixed-methods approach. The training program consisted of online modules, workshops, and hands-on practice sessions, covering topics such as sample preparation, preservation, transportation, and analysis. The participants were 50 laboratory workers from different fields and institutions, who completed pre- and post-training surveys, interviews, and tests. The results showed that the training program significantly improved the participants' knowledge, confidence, and performance in sample collection, as well as their awareness of the ethical and safety issues involved. The paper discusses the implications of these findings for improving the standards and practices of laboratory sample collection, and suggests directions for future research.
