Developing and establishing procedures for collecting, processing, and analyzing biological samples. Operation of complex electronic instruments to analyze blood, body fluids, and other substances for the presence of normal, abnormal, and malignant chemical components and cells. Prepare blood for transfusion and match proper blood donor to recipient; A Screen, evaluate, and monitor transplantation patients. Perform specialized and complex tests that include, how cytometry, forensic testing, paternity testing, and Cytogenetics; and molecular probes. Microscopically classify and differentiate normal and abnormal cells, microorganisms, and crystals.

Medical laboratory Technology is one of the most rapidly expanding health care fields as current research shows that the health care industry is in the midst of one of the most significant shortages of trained Medical lab Technologists in its history, and leaders predict this trend will continue. Healthcare and technological advances embraces the need to conduct high level scientific research to gain better understanding and offer new diagnostic tools for endemic diseases. Graduates of the program may be candidates for positions such as laboratory managers, education coordinators, college or university medical technology faculty members, laboratory computer specialists, research laboratory technologists, departmental supervisors, etc
