Integrity In
Every Test

As a leading laboratory, we are relied upon by many local authorities and law firms throughout the UK to provide accredited results that meet tight court deadlines and stringent specifications. Our services include full case management, frequently involving clients in multiple countries across the world.

Supporting the Legal System in All Circumstances

Our mission is to support the legal system with rapid, informed, and understandable scientific evidence. In high-stakes matters such as those in Family Law, our promise is to enable robust legal decisions based on clear scientific findings. No two subjects are the same, which is why we offer a range of toxicology solutions using head hair, body hair, finger and toes nails, and blood, in order to determine a person’s substance use over time. DNA testing is another key service we provide, helping to confirm genetic relationships from parents to third degree relationships including first cousins, great aunts and uncles, and great grandparents.

  1. Absolute Integrity

    We handle each case with the utmost respect and confidentiality. All procedures, from sample collection to DNA and toxicology testing, are conducted under strict chain-of-custody protocols. Our ISO 17025 UKAS accredited laboratory showcases our commitment to quality standards and provides clients with confidence in the legal defensibility of our results.

  2. Committed to Clarity

    Clarity is paramount in our delivery of Expert Witness Statements, which are meticulously prepared to be easily understandable while meeting rigorous scientific standards. Every report we provide translates complex laboratory data into clear, concise, and court-admissible documentation. This commitment to clarity aids legal professionals in presenting compelling and factual evidence regarding toxicology and genetic relationships.

  3. Rapid Results

    Understanding the urgency of legal timelines, AttoLife prioritises the rapid delivery of results without compromising quality or accuracy. Our advanced technology and efficient processes are designed to meet tight court deadlines, providing swift yet comprehensive data analysis. This rapid response capability not only helps in adhering to judicial requirements but also reduces the emotional strain on all parties involved by speeding up the resolution process.
