They perform diagnostic procedures in the health care setting, such as chemical analysis
of body fluids, classification of blood cells, identification of disease producing
microorganisms, and the selection of compatible donor blood for transfusion.

graduates to perform laboratory procedures in a variety of settings. Career and employment
opportunities include hospitals, research and reference laboratories, public health
and veterinary facilities, and environmental and quality assurance laboratories.
