ABOUT THE COURSE

Medical Laboratory technology is conscientious for performing laboratory investigations as a medical laboratory scientist (MLS), Clinical Laboratory scientist (CLS), Medical laboratory technician or technologist (MLT). It is a healthcare professional who performs chemical, hematological, immunologic, histopathological, cytopathological, microscopic and bacteriological diagnostic analyses on body fluids such as blood, urine, sputum, stool, cerebrospinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, pericardial fluid and synovial fluid as well as other specimens. Those intellectuals work in clinical laboratories at hospitals, reference labs, biotechnology labs and non clinical industrial labs. As vital members of the health care team, medical laboratory professionals play a critical role in collecting the information needed to give the best care to an ill or injured patient. The fact is that the practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the laboratory. The candidates are well trained to handle sophisticated laboratory equipment, including cell counters, microscopes and automated analyzers. These devices are used to search for parasites, bacteria and other microorganisms. Medical laboratory technicians carry out less complicated procedures and tests than do medical laboratory technologists.
