Medical Laboratory Sciences Major

Medical Laboratory Sciences (also known as Medical Technology or Clinical Laboratory Sciences) is the branch of laboratory medicine that deals with the study of blood and other body specimens to aid in the diagnosis of human disease, determine optimal therapy, and monitor the progress of treatment.

Medical Laboratory Scientists are essential members of the healthcare team who are responsible for performing the analysis, evaluating normal and abnormal results, and correlating the results with disease states. The information they provide physicians is essential to patient care. They are involved with every aspect of clinical laboratory testing including method development, analysis, quality assurance, training of personnel, and laboratory management.

Areas of the clinical laboratory include hematology, immunology, microbiology, chemistry, transfusion services, urinalysis and molecular diagnostics.
