Medical Laboratory Technologists
Medical laboratory technologists (MLTs) perform diagnostic testing on tissues and body fluids which assist physicians in proper diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.
Areas of specialty include:

MLTs have completed an accredited training program at a post secondary institution, such as BCIT, and are certified by the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS). We have over 130 MLTs working in the laboratory.
Medical Laboratory Assistants
Medical laboratory assistants (MLAs) collect and process biological specimens. They are front-line workers whose duties include phlebotomy (blood collection), specimen processing, and data entry. In order to work as a medical laboratory assistant, MLAs must graduate from a recognized Medical Laboratory Assistant Program. Our laboratory currently employs 45 MLAs.
