Bowling Green State University's Medical Laboratory Science program is hosting the 80-foot long Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics truck on campus Tuesday and Wednesday.
The public and the university community are invited to see first-hand some of the high-tech equipment used in hospitals and medical labs to do various tests. The truck, which will be parked in Lot N near Jerome Library and Wolfe Center for the Arts, will be open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Visitors are welcome to come as their schedules allow and to stay as long as they wish.
"You will be able to see what happens between the time your blood is drawn and when you have the results," explained Rebecca Bertz, director of the BGSU's Medical Laboratory Science program. "You can learn what happens in the middle - the rest of the story," she added.
The equipment on the truck can handle a variety of tests such as Vitamin D, pregnancy, cholesterol, glucose, illegal drugs, allergies, thyroid diseases, herpes, cancer tumor markers, hepatitis, HIV and blood clotting.
The Medical Laboratory Science program will have a table with information about the program.
The visit is sponsored by the Center of Excellence for Health and Wellness Across the Lifespan and the College of Health and Human Services.
