BSc. Medical Laboratory Science

Did you know that behind every laboratory test carried out in the hospital lies a healthcare professional, whose duty is to bring out the health status of the patient?

This healthcare professional is the medical laboratory scientist who performs chemical, haematological, immunologic, microscopic, and bacteriological diagnostic analyses on body fluids such as blood, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), pericardial fluid, and synovial fluid, as well as other specimens.

As modern medicine advances, the horizon of the Medical Laboratory Sciences also expands and the body of knowledge pertinent to the different disciplines widens. This fact, coupled with the reliance of clinicians on laboratory testing to confirm and enhance their diagnostic skills places a great and increasing responsibility on the laboratory professional.
