The medical practitioners that help solve or diagnose tests in the laboratory are your initial health care specialists. These health care professionals help to identify errors in blood samples and undertake the responsibility of providing proper test results to the patient. Although they may not treat you or write down any prescriptions they are essential for the healthcare business. They help to identify any uniqueness with your case through sample method and also conduct tests of various types through technical tools for accurate results.

When you enrol for B.Sc in Medical Laboratory Technology you become a laboratory scientist. There are a variety of tests that are conducted by these scientists. Unravelling information and decoding laboratory tests after analysing the information and particles that are present in the samples is the task of laboratory scientists. They also help physicians and assist them with pre procedures. B.Sc in Medical Laboratory Technology covers the curriculum for you to diagnose and identify diseases incurred by patients and help physicians with the treating it. It is also your duty to monitor or prevent any type of disease that the patient is at risk so as to maintain the health of the patient.

Professional duties covered under B.Sc in Medical Laboratory Technology

As a practitioner there are essential duties that you would be required to carry out. These duties pertain to the following areas:

  • Identifying presence of abnormal cells which cause leukemia
  • Understanding and analysing cardiac enzyme activity released in case of a heart attack
  • Detecting whether any bacteria is causing any disease in a patient
  • Identifying through sample method whether there is any DNA markers for genetic diseases
  • Collecting blood, urinal or any other type of sample from a patient in order to identify the presence of a disease is also an essential duty of a laboratory scientist.
  • Understanding about various technologically advanced tools that help identify the diseases or bacteria of a patient.

These are all topics covered under B.SC in Medical Laboratory Technology and helps you become a healthcare professional. You can choose to join a hospital or you can open your own lab and practice there. Other types of career options include becoming:

  • Clinical laboratory supervisors or managers,
  • Clinical laboratory administrators and directors
  • Quality specialists and managers of quality that undertake the responsibility to check whether all the tests conducted prescribe to a
  • certain standard set by the diagnostic centre.
  • You can become research technologists who conducts research in clinical trial organisations.
  • You can work in government agencies or forensic laboratory

Thus, a lot of options are present to you for specialising in this course. Although you need to have an eligibility for having studied science in your 10+12 and your aggregate is also taken into account during the enrolment process. You need to understand the scope of this course which I have already elaborated in the blog but you must research on your own in case you want to be a qualified clinical laboratory scientist or practitioner. The healthcare industry is on an growing stage in India with the progress in medical practices there has been a surge in the job recruitment of this industry. Thus you will have a soaring career if you enrol for this program.
