Hello Medical Laboratory Scientist in the house,

What kind of test can a man run if he thinks maybe his sperm is not active and which good Medical Laboratory would you guys refer the person to for the test.Thanks and would be expecting a prompt response.

@bernard08,victor2009 et al,
sorry,have been awol for a while,it's just the work factor.
have been trying to follow the forum to the best of my ability.
as per the electricity issue,my own 1kobo is that any nation wanting to advance both in technology or otherwise needs to have a stable supply of electricity,without it,it's gonna be 1 problem after the order.the generator should be a backup plan and not the main appliance.
i am looking forward to that great day when there wouldn't be curses thrown at the power company in naija again.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 10:04am On Jun 30, 2009
@femilangy, answer to your querry is already in the forum. The diagnostic laboratories highlighted so far in this forum could be of help. Contact them.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 10:12am On Jun 30, 2009
@heroes1983, let me personally welcome you here. We are very glad to have colleagues abroad identifying with this forum.
The first step to take when you arrive Nigeria after your course is to officially register with the Medical Laboratory Council of Nigeria. You'll also need to join the Association of Medical Laboratory Scientist of Nigeria-the parent association of all Medical Laboratory Scientists in Nigeria. I have also figured out that you have a biase for oncology. The Society of Cellular Pathology Scientists of Nigeria is an interest group of choice too. Just keep in touch. You'll have all information to get you on course.
Cheers

welcome back Bernard
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 11:26am On Jul 01, 2009
@dominique,
thanks for keeping the forum moving. My absence was not deliberate. It is as a result of one of the nagging problems we contend with in all aspects of our lives as Nigerians. If not power problem today, it is going to be ISP problem tomorrow. Actually, my ISP have been fumbling of recent hence I had to be hopping from one cyber cafe to another in the interim to keep in touch.
But I must say I am really proud of you. You have proved you can keep this forum on and on by your useful contributions and response to querries raised by members. It is very nice having you around.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by dominique(f): 2:17pm On Jul 02, 2009
thanks Bernard, but i cant take much credit for keeping the thread running. your absence was greatly felt, hope you keep in touch more regularly.

I apprecite you giving little me your time.

Basically, I'm a BMS student and trying to complete my portfolio. Part of that involves a presentation, ive decided to go for haematology, biochemistry or microbiology.
Are you in any of these sections? if you are, I'll just like to know what you think should be in my presentation

Your presentation should have a guideline on what is expected of you.

I work in any of the above - one have to be multi-disciplinary these days.

By the way, which degree is yours, a co-terminus one or similar?
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by 1honeybee: 6:06pm On Jul 02, 2009
Its co-terminous but its full time. I get to do 2mths work placement during summer holidays.
Any guideline on heamatology then? grin i enjoyed it better. microbiology was the best but i detest the smell, biochemistry is BORING.
lol
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by ElRazur: 6:16pm On Jul 02, 2009
Two months work is not enough to do your portfolio am afraid. smiley  You need at least a year, or in most case two. I guess the portfolio you are referring to is the on for your course and not the whole thing for the IBMS/HPC.

Look at various topic you have been taught. Then you consider what is expected of you, how long the presentation should last, what materials to use - board, power point or a combination of both.  Ideally, you would be given a list and then you can take from it.

One of the popular topics usually evolves round blood disorders. This can be easily presented on a board and several point based explanation made on your part. For microbiology, look at a life cycle of a known organism that have health implications etc. . . . You could get specific and more detailed, but Ideally your presentation would last a max of 10-15mins. Meaning you may not have all the time to dwell into certain areas.

Remember that you would have to work at least 3months in each area or so before you complete your IBMS/HPC registration portfolio.
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by 1honeybee: 6:26pm On Jul 02, 2009
The co-terminus one I'm doing is sort of integrated into the 3yrs of study at UNI and it is sponsored by a group of NHS hospital, first yr placement is 8wks, one wk in each of the sections, 2nd yr placement is 8wks as well but in one section. I'm doing my first placement now and gathering evidences. After my 3 yrs in uni I'll be qualified and registered. Basically , I'll spend 4months training instead of the usual 1yr or more.
Yes------you're right, the presentation will be for 10-15mins. I just don't know how I'm gonna make a !5mins presentation from an experience of 1wk without going off the topic/title, grin

[quote][/quote]

Its all inclusive. IBMS/HPC registration is the only reason for the placement
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by ElRazur: 6:33pm On Jul 02, 2009
Yeah am aware of how the co-terminus thing work. Let's just say you guys are cheating.  grin Mine was a straight degree, then have to run around trying to get experience. . . .  Any how, since the presentation is based on work expereince, what you need is to get your mentor , or whoever you are assigned to show you how some routines are carried out. Use this routine to form the basis of your presentation and then incorporate your lecture into it.

For example look at blood disorders affecting immigrants etc - NHS specifically run test for this - link it with your notes in Uni [This is usually in most text book you use] then make your move from there. Any more question, and I would be charging you. grin
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by 1honeybee: 6:37pm On Jul 02, 2009
lol-------We're not cheating oooo. For some reason, they seem to think they don't have enough people in the profession, so these group of NHS are using a scholarship scheme to woo us, cheesy

Thanks for your advise, I don't think my course facilitator will be of much help though, trust me grin
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by ElRazur: 6:49pm On Jul 02, 2009
That is what you think. Come back and tell me once you graduate.

Ideally, If you wont get anyone to help you, then make sure you understand the principle behind one clinical routine. See if you can link it with your uni work. . . that is the best option I can think off for a week's experience. smiley

PS
I am talking about who ever you are working with down at the lab. smiley

We change departments each week and the placement is split between 2 hospitals.
We're not under just one person as well----lol
Its a bit all over the place really.

Dont worry, , , , the group of NHS are my potential employers once I graduate as long as i pass, except if i dont want to work with them ofcourse. They pay the 3yrs tuition, accomodation during placements and they pay us band 5 salary during placement-----surely they won't want all that to go down the drain tongue
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by ElRazur: 7:52pm On Jul 02, 2009
Band 5 salary? Now I am convinced you guys are cheating. grin Nice one though. smiley
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by 1honeybee: 7:57pm On Jul 02, 2009
Do I smell jealousy?

I'll contact you when I write up my presentation and you can go through it, I'll look for you again like I did todaygrin smiley

Jealousy? lmao. Erm okay. grin For the record, you get a percentage of band 5. 

No worries. If I am less busy - Starting an Msc in Public Health soon.  smiley

awwww, goodluck with that.

Kindly accept this rather late personal compliment from me. You are welcome to the forum.
I believe members are already smelling great with your contributions. keep it up
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by heroes1983(m): 6:07am On Jul 05, 2009
Thanks mates,  (dominique and benard) for your help and advice. guess all i have to do now is enroll for NYSC embarassed and hope to be sent to lagos. jezz the tot of that sends charges down my spine. hope this NYSC wahala just a cliche. one problem though - i cant google out the addresses or any of these associations. just wanted to see if there are any requirements before being a member. some guy told me that i would have to take some courses on tropical diseases or something like that before i can get enlisted to the Cellular Pathology Scientists of Nigeria. can anyone confirm it, please? ill be finishing this year and i hope to meet more laborants grin when i get back,  ill keep in touch.
keep up the spirit, folks
Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by benard08(m): 1:41pm On Jul 06, 2009
Yes, you will need to enroll for your NYSC but at the same time, I'll advice you commence the process of registration with the MLSCN. That will make things easier for you by the time you round up your NYSC program. As for courses in tropical diseases, you don't need it to join the Society For Cellular Pathology Scientists (SCPS). The society will be having a workshop between 20th and 23rd July, 2009 at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, Lagos.
Anyway, be free to send your queries here if you need anything about Medical Laboratory Practice in Nigeria.

Cheers.

Re: Medical Laboratory Scientists Forum by louchi: 9:02pm On Jul 09, 2009
The best forum I have gone through so far. I was thinking of studying nuclear medicine but I was told MLS sets one up better for grad school. Anyways kudos to Benard and co. for this wonderful forum. I really want to do great things with MLS. One quick ?, are the diagnostic techniques in Nigeria up to par with those abroad?
