MEDICAL LABORATORY TECHNOLOGY

Medical Laboratory Technology also called Clinical laboratory science is an allied health profession which is concerned with the diagnosis and prevention of disease through the use of clinical laboratory tests. In addition, this field of science studies various clinical applications of microbes for the improvement of health. These tests help doctors to detect, diagnose and treat diseases. Medical Laboratory Technology is one of the largest and important wings in modern healthcare Sector. A Medical Laboratory Technologist (MLT) also referred to as a medical technologist, a clinical scientist, or clinical laboratory technologist do these tests by analyzing body fluids, tissues, blood typing, microorganism screening, chemical analyses, cell counts of human body etc. They play an important role in collecting the information’s needed, sampling, testing, reporting and documentation of these investigations. They determine the presence, extent or absence of disease and provide data needed to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment.
