The department of Medical Laboratory Science has a number of unique labs that will be used to address different practical subjects that are taught within the department. These labs provide hands-on experience to all students enabling them not just to read theory, but practice the profession.
Biochemistry: It is the branch of Chemistry that can not be separated from other specific labs of DMLS. Exercises lead to a deep understanding of human physiology, normal and abnormal mechanisms, and the effect of unbalanced food on organ functions. Improving students use of the diagnostic kits besides their manipulation to do these analyses manually.
Biology: The lab exercises focus on learning foundation skills for DMLS students. The terms of lab safety and ethics in the department, acquiring the skill for using general lab equipment, microscopic and dissection techniques. The student is also trained to prepare slides for microscopic examination of various microorganisms and animal tissues.
Chemistry: Students gain experience in the careful handling of chemical substances. And they acquire the skill of preparing and using chemical reagents and conducting chemical analyzes. The experiments that were carried out during the term promote students understanding of several human body activities, as well as facilitating diagnostic kets use.
Hematology: Involves the blood study, particularly how blood can affect overall health or disease. Hematology tests include tests on the blood, blood proteins, and blood-producing organs. These tests can evaluate various blood conditions, including infection, anemia, inflammation, hemophilia, blood-clotting disorders, leukemia, and the body’s response to chemotherapy treatments.
Histology: Histology is the study of microscopic structures of tissues. It is responsible for preparing excellent paraffin-embedded, hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections as well as special stained sections. A wide range of specimens is handled in the laboratory, including bone marrow biopsies, surgical resections and biopsies, dermatology biopsies, and a wide variety of research specimens.
Histopathology: Allows studying the structure and function of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems. It is the microscopic examination of biological tissues to observe the appearance of diseased cells and tissues in very fine detail. Histological stains are important as they enhance the ability to visualize and differentiating microscopic structures to develop an optimal plan of treatment.
Immunology: The responsible for laboratory testing and clinical consultation in several broad areas, including the evaluation of autoimmune disease, immune deficiencies, immune proliferative disorders, and allergy, as well as having responsibility for some aspects of infectious disease serology.
Microbiology: The lab exercises focus on studying bacteria and their characteristics. Students conduct numerous experiments to isolate and differentiate between types. Preparing the culture media, isolation techniques and diagnostic tests are among the basic skills. Collection of samples from humans and test their bacterial contents via general and differential culture media.
Mycology: During the lab exercises, students acquire the skills of isolating fungi from natural habitats and the direct microscopic examination technique. Study the medical fungi is the sole aim of the lab. It includes sample collection, culturing, and identification with the safe procedure.
Cancer Research: This is a newly established laboratory within the department that has all the necessary equipment required to conduct basic ‘cancer’ research.
