2.0 BACKGROUND for Medical Diagnostic Laboratory Business Plan In Nigeria Feasibility Study
The idea to establish a unique, Daystar diagnostic laboratory at
Afikpo is the result of the supervision recently conducted by medical
laboratory scientists that revealed that of the three medical
laboratories instituted in the area, only one is up to standard

and managed by people who have no knowledge of the profession and did
not even study it as a course.
People even with their money, suffer and die of sicknesses whose
causes could be identified and the right treatment given if the
existing laboratories were competent. I think this is an ample
opportunity to establish a qualified laboratory whose competence is
well known to the general public because of the quality of service/
diagnosis it is capable of delivering.
