The membership consists of Chemical Pathologists and postgraduate trainees which has expanded over the last five years from a count of 15 to 50 at present. Chemical Pathology is the field in medical laboratory science which handles investigating body fluids like blood and urine.

Chemical Pathologists provide leadership to the large community of medical laboratory technologists in providing a timely and cost-effective Chemical Pathology service to the public of Sri Lanka in the forefront of medical diagnosis and prevention of non-communicable diseases while pursuing avenues of expanding the understanding of the stakeholders by continuous medical education.
