Medical Technologists, also known as Clinical Laboratory Technologists or Clinical Laboratory Scientists, work in clinical laboratories. Much of our work involves the analysis of body fluids such as blood and urine with the results of these tests reported to the doctor. The clinical microbiologists' primary function is to identify pathogenic (harmful) bacteria,viruses,parasites, and fungi.

The State of California has changed the way that testing is done in order to become a licensed CLS in California. Information concerning these changes can be found at the LFS web site (link is in the next column).

For more specific information, please check the Occupational Handbook from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
