I like Lonnies.
Labsters is nice.
Mad Labs Minions is not good, as there is a game company named Mad Labs (least there was at some point in history, I have not seen their products recently, but I have not been looking).

I think I've got it:

Looney Techs

The full name would be "Looney Labs Technical Support", which sounds official and dignified, carries the same meaning as "Lab Assistant", and is true!  (Looney Labs products are low-tech, so anyone helping would be tech support.)

But then the nickname is short, catchy, easily spelled (if you know how to spell Looney), geeky, and nicely tongue-in-cheek, evoking both "crazy techs" and "lunatics".

What do you all think? 

If you don't like it, here are some other things I came up with along my path to this term, and they might spur your own creativity:
- Henchmen
- Minions
- Labsters
- Goons
- Mad Labs Minions
- Looney Labs Lunatics
- Loonatics
