About Us

Who We Are

The Association of Kenya Medical Laboratory Scientific Officers (AKMLSO) was founded and registered on 4th December, 1964. In this country we have three cadres of members in the profession of Medical Laboratory Sciences:

  • Medical Laboratory Technicians (Certificate holders)
  • Medical Laboratory Technologists (Diploma, Higher Diploma and Degree holders).
  • Medical Laboratory Officers (Undergraduate, Masters and PhD degree holders).

In 1970, it was thought that the name should be changed from Kenya Medical Laboratory Technicians Association
(KMLTA) to Association of Kenya Medical Laboratory Scientific Officers (AKMLSO), so that both cadres can be adequately accommodated.

Ensuring excellence in medical laboratory practice in the Republic of Kenya and beyond.

Mission Statement
