It is well acknowledged that biostatistics is a crucial tool in medical, clinical, and health research. The application of statistics to biological fields, medical fields, or medical studies is known as biostatistics. It covers a wide range of topics, including agriculture, genetics, biology, biochemistry, demography, epidemiology, ethnography, and many more, in addition to health, medicine, and nutrition. The medical laboratory scientist uses biostatistics to assess a variety of issues including life and death. The purpose of this article is to inform the general public about the uses of biostatistics in the field of medical laboratory science.
