Celebrating 50 Years Of ASEAN | 8 August 2017
As a member association of the ASEAN Association for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (AACLS), MIMLS is proud to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of ASEAN!

The AACLS was formerly known as the ASEAN Association of Medical Laboratory Technologists (AAMLT). The agreement was signed at the 1st ASEAN Conference of Medical Laboratory Technology (ACMLT) at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur in April 1985.

Current members of AACLS include:
  • Malaysian Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences (MIMLS)
  • Persatuan Ahli Teknologi Laboratorium Kesehatan Indonesia (PATELKI)
  • Association of Medical Technologists of Thailand (AMTT)
  • Singapore Association of Medical Laboratory Science (SAMLS)
  • Phillipine Association of Medical Technologists, Inc (PAMET)
  • Brunei Darussalam Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (BAMLS)
  • Myanmar Medical Technologist Association (MMTA)
  • Association of Medical Technologists of Cambodia (AMTC).

The objectives of the Association are to foster all aspects of Medical Laboratory Sciences in the region of ASEAN, promote cooperation in scientific exchange among the ASEAN countries, establish a closer professional and personal rapport amongst members, organise a conference meet of the Association every two years, help establish and formulate policies to attain the highest possible level of practice of Medical Laboratory Sciences for the people of ASEAN and promote cordial relationship with other similar organisations sharing the goals of the Association.

The AAMLT Constitution was drafted and adopted during the 1st Biennial General Meeting at the 2nd ACMLT hosted by PAMET (Philippines) in November 1986. In November 1993, AAMLT was formally affiliated with ASEAN during the 1st meeting of the 27th ASEAN Standing Committee held in Bangkok, Thailand. The Constitution was amended and the name AAMLT was changed to the ASEAN Association for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (AACLS) at the 11th ACMLT in May 2006, Jakarta, Indonesia.
