The primary purpose of the Field Medical Laboratory FML program was to perform the necessary research and development leading to a new Field Medical Laboratory for use by the Army Medical Service during the 1970 time frame with capabilities consistent with the requirements for modern laboratory medicine. A Field Medical Laboratory system was defined and described in terms of mission, capabilities, procedures, organization, equipment, supplies, personnel, and facilities. A laboratory model was developed and a feasibility demonstration was performed. Selected representative equipment items were subjected to environmental testing, drawings were completed and procurement specifications were prepared. Step-by-step laboratory procedural manuals and equipment operating and maintenance instructions were developed. Lastly, documentation relating to the FML organization, personnel, and equipment allowances TO and E and a revised AR 40-4 pertaining to FML services was developed in addition to a plan for activation and deployment of the FML. The program resulted in the definition, description, development, and evaluation of a feasibility model of an advanced Field Medical Laboratory system designed to provide effective medical laboratory services on a world-wide basis in the 1970 time period. The total development of the FML system can be realistically achieved within the required time frame. Author
