1 Diagnostic Detectives: Medical Laboratory Professionals A Closer Look at Careers in Clinical Laboratory Science (Medical Technology)

2 Medical Laboratory Facts A behind-the the-scenes, highly skilled team of pathologists, specialists, technologists, and technicians work together to provide valuable data needed to: determine the presence or absence of disease evaluate the effectiveness of treatment maintain health Also called Clinical Pathology and Anatomic Pathology.

3 Medical Laboratory Facts Clinical laboratory professionals generate data to assist physicians in the detection of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, infectious mono, bacterial and viral infections, and drugs of abuse. 80% of all physician decisions are based on laboratory test results produced by the laboratory team.

4 Clinical Pathology This laboratory performs testing on blood and body fluids. Laboratory professionals use sophisticated biomedical instrumentation and technology, computers, as well as methods requiring manual dexterity, to perform the thousands of laboratory tests currently available.

5 Careers in the Clinical Pathology Laboratory Phlebotomist Laboratory Assistant Clinical Laboratory Scientist / Medical Technologist Clinical Laboratory Technician / Medical Laboratory Technician Supervisor/Manager/Educator Technical Specialist (PhD) Pathologist (MD or DO) NOTE: Educational requirements for professions in blue will be discussed later.

6 Other Job Opportunities Hospital laboratories Reference laboratories Physician office laboratories State Department of Health Fertility clinics Pharmaceutical / Biotech industry Veterinary laboratories Forensic laboratories

7 Daily Routine Phlebotomist Specimen Collection Laboratory Assistant Specimen Processing and Pre-Analytic Functions Clinical Laboratory Technician and Clinical Laboratory Scientist Also known as Medical Laboratory Technician and Medical Technologist May be a Generalist (working in all lab sections) or a Specialist (work in one lab) Specimen Analysis (automated or manual) Instrument Maintenance Quality Control Procedures Result Review

8 Typical Clinical Pathology Laboratory Sections: Hematology Coagulation Chemistry Toxicology Immunology Transfusion Medicine (Blood Bank) Histocompatibility Testing Medical Microbiology Molecular Pathology Flow Cytometry

9 Phlebotomy The phlebotomist collects blood samples from patients - young and old.

10 Specimen Processing Laboratory assistants receive and prepare blood and body fluid specimens for testing.

11 Hematology Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Medical Laboratory Technologist) performing blood cell counts on computerized automation.

12 Hematology Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Medical Technologist) reviewing blood cell morphology under the microscope to detect the presence of certain anemias, leukemias,, or lymphomas.

13 Hematology Laboratory Normal Lymphocyte Leukemic Blasts & Lymphocyte Atypical Lymphocyte

14 Coagulation Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Medical Technologist) performing tests that determine the presence of a bleeding or clotting disorder.

15 Chemistry Laboratory Technicians and technologists analyze blood serum for hundreds of biochemical elements that reflect cardiac, liver, renal, endocrine and acid/base function. Example tests include glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides, heart and liver enzymes.

16 Chemistry Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientists (Medical Technologists) monitor instrument quality control data and review patient results before releasing the information to the physician.

17 Toxicology Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientists (Medical Technologists) utilize thin layer chromatography to analyze urine specimens for therapeutic drugs as well as drugs of abuse.

18 Urinalysis Laboratory Medical Laboratory Technicians and Medical Technologists analyze urine for elements such as glucose, protein, ketones, bilirubin,, ph, abnormal cells and chemical crystals.

19 Immunology Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientists and Clinical Laboratory Technicians perform tests on serum to detect antibody production in response to various infections and disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, hepatitis, herpes, and allergies.

20 Transfusion Medicine Laboratory (Blood Bank) Clinical Laboratory Scientists perform ABO and Rh typing, antibody screening, and crossmatching to determine safe donor blood for a transfusion of a patient.

21 Transfusion Medicine Laboratory (Blood Bank) Medical Technologists check the paperwork for correct information before releasing the unit of blood to be transfused.

22 Histocompatibility Laboratory Medical Technologists perform serological typing of white blood cells for HLA antigens to determine: if a donor organ or bone marrow is a good match for transplantation into a recipient. certain disease associations

23 Microbiology Laboratory Clinical Laboratory Scientists use various culture techniques to determine which bacteria, virus or fungus might be causing illness.

24 Microbiology Laboratory Medical Technologists perform antimicrobial susceptibility testing on bacterial isolates to determine what antibiotics will be effective in treating the infection.

25 Molecular Pathology Lab Clinical Laboratory Scientists extract and amplify the DNA from various samples.

26 Molecular Pathology Lab The DNA or RNA nucleic acid sequences are then studied for: unique sequences of various bacterial, fungal or viral organisms defective genes found in inherited disease such as cystic fibrosis mutations in certain cancer cells

27 Flow Cytometry Lab Medical Technologists use a flow cytometer to detect: abnormal cell surface markers found in leukemia and lymphoma lymphocyte subsets in HIV infection.
