Biomedical Laboratory Techniques
Biomedical Laboratory Methods graduates are healthcare professionals that deal with the laboratorial, assessment and research activities associated with biomedical and biotechnological analyses, particularly in relation to biochemistry, microbiology, parasitology and virology, pharmaco-toxicology, immunology, clinical pathology, haematology, cytology and histopathology.
Graduates provide autonomous professional services in direct collaboration with the qualified laboratory personnel in charge of all associated operational duties. An adequate command of English enables graduates to enter relevant working environments not only nationally but also at the European and non-European level.
In laboratory facilities, they:
- are responsible for the correct completion of analytic procedures and for their own conduct within their sphere of duty, in compliance with the work protocols set out by the managers in charge;
- verify that the services provided correspond to the indicators and standards set out by the centre manager;
- monitor and check that the equipment used is functioning correctly;
- oversee the standard maintenance and potential elimination of minor difficulties;
- assist in the planning and organisation of operations within the their place of work.
Graduates in Biomedical Laboratory Techniques can pursue careers in:
- clinical biochemistry, microbiology and virology, clinical pathology, haematology and immunohematology, immunology, molecular genetics, hysto-clinical pharmacology and toxicology, anatomy and pathology analysis laboratories operating in hospitals and other institutes on the National Health System and related private centres, or in scientific recovery and treatment institutes;
- quality control laboratories in the biomedical field of pharmaceutical industries;
- production industries and sales agencies operating in the laboratory diagnosis sector;
- university and non-university research laboratories in the biomedical sector.
