Interesting question: Medical technologists are always in demand and usually duties include serving in different areas of clinical laboratory. If you are qualified you may be assigned to microbiology part of the lab, but this requires training and experience in this specific area. In the modern era microbiology is utilizing a lot of molecular techniques in everyday testing, so expertise in this area might be a plus.
