Catalog Description

A medical laboratory technician (MLT) uses laboratory skills, computers, technology, and knowledge of pathology to provide information needed by the physician to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. In clinical chemistry, for example, the MLT determines enzyme levels to diagnose a heart attack, glucose levels to monitor diabetes, and cholesterol levels to prevent heart disease. In hematology, the MLT studies blood cells to diagnose anemia and leukemia. In immunohematology, the MLT prepares blood for transfusions. In the microbiology department, MLT identifies the organism causing an infection and determines the appropriate antimicrobials for treatment.
