Medical laboratory science is the use of clinical laboratory tests to detect, diagnose, monitor and treat disease. Blood, tissue and body fluids can be chemically analyzed and examined for foreign organisms and abnormalities. Medical laboratory scientists are laboratory professionals who are part of the medical team of specialists that works together to determine the presence, extent or absence of disease. They perform a full range of laboratory tests, from simple blood screens to more complex tests to detect diseases like cancer, coronary artery disease and diabetes.
