The Journal of Medical Laboratory Science & Technology of South Africa is published under the auspices of the Society of Medical Laboratory Technology of South Africa. In this realm, it is supported by the Pathology disciplines covering the disciplines registered under the Health Professional Council of South Africa such as Haematology, Chemistry, Histology, Cytology, Cytogenetics, Microbiology, Virology, Molecular Biology, Immunohaematology and related fields.

It therefore provides a platform for multi-disciplinary articles in research or on a diagnostic level. 

The journal supports primary scientific articles, technical reports, short communications and review articles.

This is a name change from the previous Journal of Medical Technology South Africa. The MTSA Journal archives can be found using the MTSAJ archive link on the website.
