Wrong diagnosis can be harmful in clinical management of ailments

Prince Elochukwu Adibor, the Chief Executive Officer of EL-LAB Medical Diagnostic  Centre says wrong diagnosis can ge harmful in the clinical management of ailments.

He said that the recent award of International Standard Organisation (ISO 15189: 2012) accreditation certificates to three outstanding Nigerian laboratories by the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN) was a plus for the profession.

"The gesture was based on the council’s determination to take medical laboratory services to new heights which will transform a critical sector like the medical laboratory services.

"You can agree with me that it is not only getting to the top, but remaining there which takes a lot of hard work, determination, discipline and diligence.

"Quality laboratory services must be accurate, reliable, and timely and off course affordable,"he said.

Adibor said that before now, no Nigerian Laboratory was accredited by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) which was not good for the profession and its practitioners.

According to him: "The ISO certification will strengthen the belief of the public because of this very strict and stringent international accreditation in checking quality and safety.

"That means that whatever result you receive at one of these three ISO accredited laboratories under the same conditions will be the same all over the world."
