Diploma in Medical Lab Technology (DMLT)

This is  Medical Lab Technologist course. Medical Laboratory technology is the branch of medical  science responsible for performing laboratory investigations relating to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.

                           Diploma in Medical Laboratory Technology is a 2-year diploma course pursued after the successful completion of the 10,+2(Science Group) level of education..

Major components of study that form part of the DMLT Syllabus are:

  • analysis of body matter such as:
  1. 1.body fluids
  2. 2.tissue
  3. 3.blood.
  • micro-organism screening.
  • chemical analysis.
  • cell count procedures that are used to detect certain diseases in patients.

Such professionals are typically recruited as:

  • Medical Lab Technicians
  • Technologists.

They are responsible for:

  • collecting information.
  • sampling it.
  • testing..
  • reporting and documenting their medical investigations
  • conducting research studies supervised by medical researchers.
  • maintaining report accuracy.
  • conducting complex tests.
  • performing routine tests under stipulated conditions.
  • preparing specimens.
  • operating automated sample-analyzing machines.
  • arranging and setting up testing equipment.
  • maintaining lab equipment.
  • supervising experiments.
  • maintaining tools and safe conditions.

Such postgraduates of DMLT are actively involved in the following procedures:

  • Blood banking
  • Clinical Chemistry (chemical analysis of body fluids)
  • Hematology (blood related)
  • Immunology (study of immune system)
  • Microbiology (study of bacteria and other disease-carrying organisms)
  • Cytotechnology (study of human tissue)
  • Phlebotomy
  • Urine analysis
  • Coagulation
  • Parasitology
  • Blood Sample Matching
  • Drug Efficacy Tests

Successful Diploma-holders of the course perform duties such as:

analyzing human body fluids like:

  • 1.sputum
  • 2.blood
  • 3.urine
  • 4.drug count
  • 5.cerebrospinal fluid, etc.
