Cell Bowl

The Cell Bowl is a lively, interactive competition between medical laboratory science programs nationwide that culminates in the Super Cell Bowl for the Varsity league and the Second Chance Showdown for the Junior Varsity league. The program tests the scientific knowledge of MLS and MLT students with team competitions that enhance their knowledge of blood cell morphology and build their professional networks (all while preparing them for the ASCP Board of Certification exams!).

How is ASCP Involved?

ASCP is the top-tier sponsor and supporter of the Cell Bowl. Medical Lab Lady Gill is the nucleus of the Cell Bowl: this program is courtesy of her imagination and implementation.

We at ASCP think this competition is such a fantastic experience for students and program directors that we enthusiastically support the continuation and expansion of the Cell Bowl.

ASCP’s Council of Laboratory Professionals is highly involved, with many of its members offering support in the form of planning and social media.
