Department of Medical Lab Technology
- Sc Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) is an Undergraduate Program offered by Guru Nanak University for Allied Health Sciences. Medical Laboratory Technology is an Allied Health field concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases through the use of clinical laboratory tests and is complementary to medical science.
The students will be able to analyze body matter such as fluid, tissue, and blood. It also covers micro-organism screening, chemical analyses, and cell count. These professionals, medical lab technicians and technologists, play an important role in collecting information, sampling, testing, reporting and documenting medical investigations.
Technologists are also part of the conduct of research supervised by medical researchers. They are responsible for maintaining report accuracy, conducting complex tests, and generally have more training than a medical laboratory technician, who performs routine testing under stipulated conditions. Technicians assist in the preparation of specimens and operate automated sample analysis machines, set up testing equipment, keep the lab clean, maintain lab tools, conditions, etc.
