Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT)

Medical Laboratory Technology is an Allied Health specialty concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases through the use of clinical laboratory tests. The student of BMLT works in central laboratory which is well-equipped with modern and automated equipments such as ELISA Reader, Biochemical, Electrolyte and Hematological Analyzers, Spectrophotometer & Digital Calorimeters, Electrophoresis unit, Binocular & Projection Microscopes, Microtome, and Automatic Tissue Processor etc.

Though the Medical Lab Technologists spend less time with patients than doctors and nurses, medical laboratory professionals play a critical role in collecting the information needed to give the best care to an ill or injured patient. The fact is that the practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the laboratory.

Infrastructure

Well equipped Clinical Microbiology, Clinical Biochemistry and Pathology Laboratories which has an input of samples from the OPD and IPD of the 1000 bedded Multi-Super specialty Hospital- Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital. Most of the diagnostic tests are conducted by fully automated, advanced instruments and are monitored by strict quality control and quality assurance Programmes.
