AREAS OF STUDY FOR MLS
- Chemistry: state-of-the-art instrumentation is used to analyze many biochemical constituents such as glucose, cholesterol, enzymes and drugs in body fluids
- Hematology: whole blood is used for examining, counting, and identifying red and white blood cells and platelets
- Immunohematology (blood bank): units of blood or components are typed and cross-matched for transfusion
- Microbiology: disease-causing microorganisms are identified and their susceptibility to antibiotics determined
- Molecular diagnostics: detection of nucleic acids in clinical specimens is used for the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of disease
- Body fluid analysis: urine and body fluids (other than blood) are analyzed chemically and examined for cellular structures and crystal formations
- Phlebotomy: blood is collected by venipuncture or by fingerstick for use by the laboratory departments to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of diseases
