ProfessionHospital Medical Lab Departments
  • Accessioning Specimen Collection (phlebotomy)
  • Hematology
  • Chemistry
  • Histology/Anatomic Pathology
  • Microbiology
  • Transfusion Medicine

  • Venous blood collected from veins using needles,
    syringes, specimen tubes
  • Capillary finger/heel poke samples

  • Hematology the study of blood cells
  • 5 types of White Blood Cells bodys defense
    against infections (bacterial/viral/fungal)
  • Red Blood Cells carry Oxygen to tissues
  • Platelets tiny cells essential for clotting

  • Blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, other body
    fluids are analyzed for chemical levels
  • Thousands of chemical substances measured
    Glucose (blood sugar), electrolytes (Na, K, Cl,
    HCO3), hormones, enzymes (cardiac/liver/pancreas
    ), proteins, drugs of abuse

Histology Anatomic Pathology
  • Lumps, bumps, biopsies
  • Tissue sent to lab to be processed, sliced one
    cell thick, stained by MLTs
  • Tissue slides are analyzed for disease (i.e.
    cancer) by pathologists

  • Culture (grow) bacteria from infections urine,
    blood, cerebral spinal fluid (meningitis),
    wounds, sputum (pneumonia)
  • Identify bacteria, fungi, parasites
  • Test bacteria for sensitivity to antibiotics

Transfusion Medicine
  • Determine blood group (A, B, AB, O) type (Rh
  • Crossmatch blood and blood products for patients
    requiring transfusions
  • Products transfused blood, plasma, platelets,
    albumin, cryoprecipitate, blood clotting factors
    (VIII hemophilia)

Where MLTs Work
  • hospitals, private public medical laboratories,
    community health care clinics, research
    laboratories, forensic laboratories, veterinary
  • Excellent job prospects projections of
    increasing job vacancies for MLTs in Canada.

Professional Role of MLTs
  • Key member of the diagnostic team, MLTs performs
    sophisticated laboratory testing that provides
    critical information used by physicians to
    diagnose treat illness, and to maintain their
    patients health.
  • MLTs conduct laboratory tests on blood, body
    fluids and tissues, and interpret the results.

  • On top 20 list of best jobs
  • 2.5 year program 26/hour to start (BC
    hospital wage)
  • Interesting challenging work
  • Work independently, but as part of the health
    care team
  • Excellent job prospects
  • National certification CSMLS National
    Exams are written after the program has been
    completed qualified to work across Canada

MLT Profession
  • If you enjoy
  • independent, detailed work
  • problem solving
  • the medical science field
  • challenging work
  • producing quality results
  • And you can clearly differentiate colours
    posses physical stamina manual dexterity
  • then Medical Laboratory Technology could be the
    profession for you!
