The practice of modern medicine would not be possible without the tests performed in clinical laboratories. As a member of the healthcare team, Medical Laboratory Scientists perform a variety of tests on blood, tissue, and bodily fluids, using precision instruments such as microscopes and automated, computerized analyzers. These test results play an important role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. This type of analysis requires extensive knowledge of normal and abnormal physiology, correlation of laboratory data to specific disease, as well as solid understanding of instrumentation and individual test principles.
