Lab Technologists Seek Inclusion in NUC's Accreditation
The National Institute of Science Laboratory Technology (NISLT) has asked to be included in the National Universities Commission (NUC)'s accreditation team for it to play its rightful role in accreditation and certification of laboratories in the country.
This was contained in the communiqué issued at the end of its 23rd Annual National Conference on, ‘The role of Science Laboratory Technology (SLT) in Science Engineering, Technology and Innovation System (SETI)', held in Lagos, recently.
Issues examined at the conference included, ‘Standardisation of Laboratory Services and Products', ‘The Laboratory Role in Environ- mental Impact Assessment' and ‘Science Laboratory Technology Profession: The World Perspective'. Excerpts of other recomm-endations made, based on the NISLT's mandate, which seeks to advance the SLT profession in Nigeria, in line with its vision, to cause rapid technological development of the nation through SLT, were as follows: • Technologists should acquire knowledge of nanotechnology and virtual laboratory, and incorporate it into the SLT curriculum.
