Medical Laboratory Technicians (MLT) are essential members of the healthcare team, acting as detectives, uncovering and providing clues that assist physicians in patient diagnosis and treatment as well as disease monitoring or prevention. The MLT uses sophisticated biomedical instrumentation and technologies to perform laboratory testing of blood and body fluids.
