From sample preparation to report delivery, accuracy is critical in toxicology reports required to assist the Coroners and the Police in their investigations.
Examinations undertaken for coroners are designed to establish the presence or absence of drugs, alcohol or poisons in autopsy specimens and their concentrations. Our findings assist coroners to determine the role that these substances may have played in sudden or unexplained deaths.
Analysis of blood and urine specimens from drivers suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs are carried out for police involved in traffic law enforcement. Biological exhibits and other miscellaneous items are also examined in connection with serious criminal assaults and suspected drink spiking incidents.
Police road safety programs are supported by the provision of standard alcohol solutions for breath testing instrument calibration.
We also provide a wide range of toxicology consultancy including interpretation of results and provision of expert testimony to courts and tribunals.
