What Does a Medical Laboratory Technologist Do?

As important members of the healthcare field, medical laboratory technologists perform diagnostic laboratory tests used in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Duties include collecting and processing biological samples using standardized laboratory practices; accurately performing analytical testing; and correlating those test results with human health while complying with state and federal regulations.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the field is projected to grow 7 percent from 2021 to 2031, making it a solid career choice for those interested in healthcare.
