I am Rose, I had my ond and hnd in Akwa Ibom State Poly., Science Lab Tech.(physics and electronic option)
I got employed in the state civil service as a Higher Technical Officer(electrical) and was immediately posted to the ministry of works. My work role is more of supervision of electrical design and installation of the state projects. There are challenges anyway especially for physics and electronic option. Since we work in engineering field, we are required to register with COREN and with our course we find very difficult to be registered. In all, Science lab. Tech(all options) ate very unigue and dynamic courses of study. I have no regret whatsoever being one of you guys.

Hi all,

Advice and suggestions needed from experienced SLTechnicians

I finished from Yabatech lower credit HND SLT biochem option and served 2013.
Worked with an FMCG in lagos as a Laboratory technician for some years. At the moment i feel like am at a dead end because HND is no bus stop for me. I am looking at the possible options of widening my scope of academic learning but also considering my job and location.

My thought line is certifications i can do that is related to product development, research, chemistry or biochemistry. The challenge is that most of what have seen related to that is foreign and quite expensive for mat at the moment. Alternatively, how i can convert my HND to Bsc at least.

Looking forward to meaningful contributions.

the only way you can convert your HND to Bsc is for u to apply for DE or write JAMB n start from 100L.my though ooo.

Yeah, They only resort is to apply for DE or JAMB and start from 200level and 100level respectively. make ur choice of cos in the field of Sciences.

Glad to know you want to move ahead in your career part. you have two options ahead of you.
1. is to go for your PGD then to masters then beyond if you want.
2. is to go back to university and use 2 years as DE. then masters after that.

In which ever way you wish, both is a good idea, wishing you best of luck.

Have crossed from banking, now am presently in EKSU as Academic Technologist II.
Any other questions is highly welcome!

Hello.......I'm a B.Tech holder in Science Laboratory Technology (Biochemistry/Chemistry Technology) from the university of Port Harcourt. I'm presently a youth corp member in Bauchi. While in Camp i worked at the clinic and was made the head of the Laboratory session. This didn't go down well with one of the Medical Laboratory Scientist but i gave no room for intimidation, because i have my license to practice as a Laboratory Technologist/Scientist. I wrote to DG via the institute's Mail Add and they responded that I'm qualified to be there.
Presently after camp i got posted go a hospital they are saying SLT graduates can't be in a Medical Laboratory and i told them its not true. The acting DG is now involved, the National Aslton Chairman is involved. Lets stand up and say no to intimidation from Medical Laboratory Scientists.

It's not Intimidation my brother, whether you like involve the president. It's the rule of law (download MLSCN Act and read it then read your NISLT act you will see why you are not recognised) and it can not overlapped. You are not meant to be there is that you are not meant to be there. I believe with just one document they will throw you out its what the law says not what your DG or ASLTON chairman says. Even NYSC recognises MLS as captioned on their website and not SLT except the DG hasn't gone through her site either
http://nysc.gov.ng/news-and_events/mobilization-requirements.php
[number 8]

If you like I can give you circulars that both the institute and association are handicapped about. It's best as you have involved the acting DG NYSC as such postings will never happen again as it will be corrected. You don't need B.Tech to practice as a MLS as it is useless, to practice you need a BMLS + Internship + NYSC (8years) to practice as one. As even with your B.Tech degree you can't get DE to study MLS that's how bad it is let alone practicing as one.

If you can prove the law of slt provides you opportunity to work in the medical laboratory then it's injustice for not accepting you. Medical Laboratory practice is controlled by MLSCN not NISLT. Your licence covers everything as enshrined by NISLT but not medical laboratories (I'm sure you won't still be accepted by any hospital as long as there a MLS on ground - No be today e start). You are lucky Nigeria is such a lawless country because they would have arrested you, your ASLTON chairman and the institute DG as enshrined by the law of MLSCN.

No MLS will drag your practice with you as we know what the law says about it and we steer clear and allow you guys be.

For the pictures, your association wrote about this same thing and this is the reply they got. Let me find the harassment letter from ASLTON

Sincerely, i do understand your plight. MLSCN is being protective because your scope of practice its just too narrow. Outside the Hospital Laboratory and setting up your own Laboratories, where you carry out medical tests e.g Malaria, Widal, Renal Function, Liver function and a few not mentioned you really lack relevance.

As for the Law as far as it is a laboratory that is built on the principles of science and its related to my field i can work there. Its just because MLS got to the health sector before SLT that is the cause of this problem. I'm not struggling to do those hopeless medical test with you because i know my Job as a Technologist/Scientist.

SLT is the majority in Laboratory Science profession and MLS is less than minority that's why MLS is afraid that if they allow SLT into the Health Sector they will be hopelessly hopeless with their graduates not having any field to practice.

By the time i set up my own private Lab and call it a research Laboratory where i will run those Medical and other Scientific Analysis, how would MLSCN stop me??

Well we are coming up, instrumentation in the health sector belongs to SLT Medics. When we fix our house together you will definately hear from us.

As a matter of fact we SLT Occupies NAFDAC, NIPRD, SON and many other research institutes. In higher institutions we occupy the Medical Laboratories where some MLS are working also. We didn't chase them or become aggressive to them as you are to us in Hospitals.

Pls fellow Technologist/Scientist lets say no to this Agent from the darkness called MLSCN they can't restrict us as we know we have a far larger scope than they.

Thanks.

Please SLT graduates let us be informed that MLS is just a Bird petching on the wall. They have no course as they borrow from Chem Path, Clinical Chemistry (Medical Biochemistry), Medical Microbiology and Virology, Bacteriology, Histopathology. and specialize in just an area in their final year. As SLT we go more strictly into our areas from 2nd year in the university, where we get a more detailed training in our various options as Biochemist/Chemist, Microbiologist/Virologist Biomedical Technologist, Physiologist/Pharmacologist Can they compare themselves with Biochemist, Microbiologist and Medical Doctor who specialize in Chem Pathology, Haematology and Histopathology

Haha then you don't know what MLS entails, MLS isn't restricted to hospital alone. Even in the NAFDAC, Biotechnology labs, research centres esp medical research centres (IHVN, National institute of trypanosomiasis) you see them there, even at SON and NDLEA.

Don't dwell on naivety, if the law is built on the principle of science why then are you being told you can't function in the medical lab? If memory serves me right before MLS (relatively new), there has been SLT (older). SLT has always been in the ministry of science and technology as that's their domain (make research in science). Though we have your colleagues who crossed over and are now MLS.

SLT is the majority in Laboratory Science profession and MLS is less than minority that's why MLS is afraid that if they allow SLT into the Health Sector they will be hopelessly hopeless with their graduates not having any field to practice.
What is majority and minority here, the basic aim for training SLTs is to occupy the industrial sector and make relative input to the development of the country. MLS is saddled with the responsibility of carrying research on anything health and related issues. We are not afraid of SLTs (reasons best known to us) we just want things to be done in the right way, you can not be SLT and you want to practice as a MLS (for another professional). You claim majority yet you want to practice minority isn't that cowardice?

By the time i set up my own private Lab and call it a research Laboratory where i will run those Medical and other Scientific Analysis, how would MLSCN stop me??

Until then but you can ask your colleagues in Delta and other states who's stopping them. The Nigeria police just last month hit a gold mine after they sealed and arrested 6000+ slt from the state. My brother if it has anything medical, MLSCN will stop you either by arrest or litigation.

Well we are coming up, instrumentation in the health sector belongs to SLT Medics. When we fix our house together you will definately hear from us.
Hahaha SLT medics indeed, the people saddled with our instruments are biomedical engineers and they are not SLT but MLScts in biomedical instrumentation (eg DCL laboratory) as SLTs don't have that knowledge to troubleshoot sophisticated equipments.

As a matter of fact we SLT Occupies NAFDAC, NIPRD, SON and many other research institutes. In higher institutions we occupy the Medical Laboratories where some MLS are working also. We didn't chase them or become aggressive to them as you are to us in Hospitals.

Even in these centers you called aside NIPRD, if they need anything medical they won't call on SLTs. Even NDLEA are filled with MLS grin. Please mention 5 of the higher institutions where SLTs occupy the Medical laboratories and I will give you the truth you seek

Pls fellow Technologist/Scientist lets say no to this Agent from the darkness called MLSCN they can't restrict us as we know we have a far larger scope than they

You are a licenced laboratory technologist please practice as one as it is within your scope. We are licensed Medical Laboratory Scientists and we practice within our scope and not on the "principle of science". Even 98% of your colleagues knows this.

Thanks.

We didn't borrow any course from these aforementioned courses as you stated as MLS isn't only in Nigeria but worldwide (I believe your phone can browse).
We don't compare ourselves to microbiologist and biochemist (degrading as our practice encompasses all these fields of study).
You can check what MLS practice is all about but if you can't I will state them here for you.

If that MLS is just a Nigerian thing I will agree with you aside Africa mention countries where SLT is practiced.

For education sake we don't compare ourselves that's what our practice entails, Medical Laboratory practice includes medical microbiology, clinical chemistry, chemical pathology, haematology, blood transfusion science, virology, histopathology, histochemistry, immunology, cytogenetic, exfoliative cytology parasitology, forensic science, molecular biology, laboratory management etc

You think it's only in Nigeria SLTs are barred from the hospital labs, go to your neighbouring Ghana and Zambia ask and get first hand info. You claim MLS is minority and you are headstiff as to why you were rejected. Go and practice your majority grin grin grin

Research institute aren't diagnostic centres as such he might be exempted (thats if he was, you can call him and ask if he was arrested). As he is permitted to conduct research on his field and not endangering lives (It's allowed the reason it's a research institute). Once life is involved it becomes a Medical research institute and out of the league of SLT as seen in NIMR.
As even Ogun State have arrested many SLTs for putting up illegal medical diagnostic centres as centres are seen as quack sites.

Biomedical instrumentation is a course for 2years in MLS (which is like doing it in SLT from 200l - final year grin). We know how to take care of our instruments and if it's too sophisticated we call our biomedical engineers not SLTs

Biomedical instrumentation is a course for 2years in MLS (which is like doing it in SLT from 200l - final year grin). We know how to take care of our instruments and if it's too sophisticated we call our biomedical engineers not SLTs


Good luck to you, if you like invade PG schools you will still obey the rule of law lol
Why are you a chronic liar? What's is the plc of SSAUTHRI and NUAHP in universities. They don't exist only NAAT for technologist and SSANU for Admin staff.

Its not you who interprete the rule of law. The court will interprete very very soon.

Olodo like you Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, MLS etc in University health services are members of SSANU (not just admin staff - and I thought you knew something) not NAAT members (as it is for science and engineering technologists)
In University Teaching Hospital, they are (except doctors) members of NUAHP and SSAUTHRI (Senior staff association of university teaching hospital and research institute)

Its not you who interprete the rule of law. The court will interprete very very soon.
Yeah and it has been interpreting it since 2013. It interpreted one just last 2 Fridays sending doctors out of the lab (Headship - as it is not contained in MLSCN Act and Scheme of service). Even the one filed by the Delta state ASLTON against the MOH and MLS, that too has been interpreted. The reason for the numerous arrests going on in the state.
Provided it's written in white and black, the rule of law must prevail. If there was a part in NISLT act that had permitted clinical / medical investigation then it could have gone your way.
Sorry bro, MLSCN Act is all encompassing (very detailed)

N.B: No medical lab scientist is intimidating or might have intimidated you it's called "Territorialism". They are protecting the lives of innocent Nigerians at the hands of quacks like yourself when you find your way there (quack). Stay in your science labs (primary school, secondary school -biology, chemistry, physics and tertiary labs- mcb, bch, Pharmacology) and be useful there, leave the Medical lab for us we know what to do with it.

I think you are the olodo here, as i never mentioned teaching hospitals here but the university teaching labs eg Anatomy, Physiology, pharmacology, Med Biochemistry, Pharmacy, microbiology et al....who do you think are in the health services Lab in Universties??
Technologist my dear. Quack u call me...why are you guys fighting so hard for territorialism..... if not for Fear that you will bcme so irrelevant.

Is the university teaching hospital not part of the university - where do the Medical courses get their training then? Why then do we have administrative staff of the university in teaching hospital?
Quote one university/polytechnic health service (school hospital) in Nigeria that we have SLTs in the labs. Not technologists in the various labs for teaching students practical as that is your practice.

We are not fighting so hard we just don't want to put the lives of many at the mercy of quacks who have no training about life and to prevent defamation of our name cos when it happens people will be quick to shout MLS not knowing its from wannabes
Example is this:

Major function of the NISLT as enshrined in the NISLT which it's members must abide to
NISLT Act 12, 2003
1(l) conducting inspection of science laboratries in schools, post-secondary institutions, industries and research institutes in order to improve the professional standards

m)doing such things as may advance and promote the advancement of the profession in both the public and private sectors of the economy


Read your act well and stop dragging with MLS what is theirs as they are neither the cause to your predicaments @Joshuachuks93

My dear you are the one in a serious predicament here.

Why will you just copy a part of the act and paste here....what happened from A to K??

Did i hear you say you learnt how to save life?? What title of your course did you learn that?
What where the major courses you did that were not drawn from other Basic Medical sciences??
That was where you learnt to manage lives and by going for laboratory postings.
You are making noise because those that startef your profession were smart enough to carve a niche for you people and built a castle in the niche that was carved. NISLT was not as vibrant as they were. But just wait and see as those of us who have upgraded to the degree level takes over the institute. You can rant because the founders were timid. It will not be for long my dear.

That's why i urge my dear just gather much now while the space is still free for you to operate.

You mean you are so daft and want me to tell you that Laboratory Technologist/Scientist are in the Health centres of most universities. Well i have told you, just find out and see.

All Medical courses not just MLS have their foundation from BMS (Medicine, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, MLS etc). Yes the professionals are called health care providers because they are saddled with life. My brother you don't learn how to save lives, you just have to make your input to save lives regardless.

That was where you learnt to manage lives and by going for laboratory postings.
We don't go for that jamboree you call I.T; from 300l to 500l you are actively involved with patients not just on books but physical as you get scored. After posting you are left with patients as you are already licensed to take care of them (internship) then NYSC. It's a system that is not broken

You are making noise because those that startef your profession were smart enough to carve a niche for you people and built a castle in the niche that was carved. NISLT was not as vibrant as they were. But just wait and see as those of us who have upgraded to the degree level takes over the institute. You can rant because the founders were timid.

MLS wasn't carved out of Nigeria,it has always been and it came to Nigeria not like SLT that is only practiced in some countries in Africa
While you may think of upgrading, MLS is upgrading at a fast speed you are still crying of B.Tech, MLS is moving from BMLS to MLS.D (Doctorate degree) + a postgraduate college to produce specialists (making things more difficult)

That's why i urge my dear just gather much now while the space is still free for you to operate.

No matter what you do your place is still in science laboratory if you like go to heaven and get a degree when you come back you will still go back to your (post)secondary labs

You mean you are so daft and want me to tell you that Laboratory Technologist/Scientist are in the Health centres of most universities. Well i have told you, just find out and see.

I said just tell me one university health services where SLT are the ones in the their medical laboratory. Please be civil in making your point. I need just one I know there are many universities and polytechnics in Nigeria but in their health service just mention one institution to verify your claims.

@Joshuachuks93, we're not here to talk about MLS as you said it's minority please stick with your majority and practice it. We don't drag SLT with you guys.
You know no one is intimidating you as that's not your practice so you're not welcomed in a hospital lab. Just do well and apply for reposting as NYSC DG, your acting DG and even president Buhari cannot help your case.
Na long throat dey carry you enter MLS territory.

Which hospital rejected you sef ATBU health services or teaching hospital?
Inferiority complex isn't worrying you yet you want a place out of your league. MLS.D has been in existence for long as countries like Ghana, US and Pakistan have long since started (we just want to follow in their steps grin)
I will be watching you my brother grin

After all said and done please carry your flag of MLS away from here. My people dont allow them to come divert the main topic here. you speak rubbish because u neva see teaching hospitals employing SLT(for the records LUTH recently did). Just leave here in peace we beg you, carry your hate far from here thanks.
Re: Science Lab.Tech (All Options) by Tundellinium(m): 7:58am On Feb 26, 2017
I hold a National Diploma in SLT from Kwara State Polytechnic. I finished my ND program last year and I'm looking forward to Direct Entry in Optometry (Distinction only) at UNIBEN. SLT is very nice course. I now know much about virtually all science subjects both practical and theory but I'm scared of what the future holds.
