Brief History

The laboratory was opened in 1981. It started as a simple haematology unit and manned by only one Medical Laboratory Scientist – Mrs. Dada and Mr. Ikedieze Onyendi took over the affair of the Laboratory on December 12th 1983 till July 24th 2008.


In the beginning, only hematological investigations were being carried out.
