Advancements in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease can often be linked to the work of Clinical Laboratory Scientists. Working with pathologists and physicians, these medical technologists use precise methodology to develop data from human blood, tissue, and fluid. With this information they can establish and monitor quality assurance and improvement as well as discover new procedures to combat medical challenges. Areas of concentration for Clinical Laboratory Scientists include hematology, microbiology, immunohematology, and immunology.
