Medical labs are where MLT professionals can be seen in action. Government hospitals, private hospitals, clinics and nursing homes having medical labs are known to recruit medical technicians. Independent commercial medical labs and pathological labs are also known to recruit MLT professionals.

About the Course:

With a career in the Medical Laboratory, you make the choices. Your opportunities are limited only by your imagination. Clinical laboratory testing plays a crucial role in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Clinical laboratory technologists, also referred to as clinical laboratory scientists or medical technologists. Medical and clinical laboratory technologists generally have a bachelor’s degree in medical technology. They perform complex chemical, biological, hematological, immunologic, microscopic, and bacteriological tests.

Technologists microscopically examine blood, tissue, and other body substances. They make cultures of body fluid and tissue samples, to determine the presence of bacteria, fungi, parasites, or other microorganisms. They analyze samples for chemical content or reaction and determine blood glucose and cholesterol levels. They also type and cross match blood samples for transfusions. The course is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and is offered by Padmashree Institute of Medical Laboratory Technology.
