Toxicology Services

Our toxicology services are essential in cases where substance use is a concern, providing clear, comprehensive insights into drug and alcohol consumption. Such evidence can be crucial in custody disputes, demonstrating a parent or guardian's suitability for child care. We test for metabolites created by alcohol, amphetamines, cocaine, opioids, benzodiazepines, and cannabis. Our services include nail and blood testing, however, hair drug testing remains the gold standard for exploring substance abuse over an extended time window.

Identify Requirements

We evaluate the specific objectives of your DNA or toxicology test, considering factors such as the number and type of samples, location, and your court date. We'll provide a quote based on this assessment and then outline the specifics of the sample collection that ensure legal validity. For hair toxicology tests, we cover essential details like sample length and collection sites, as well as limiting factors, such as hair colour treatments.

Collect Sample

Our collection process adheres to strict chain-of-custody protocols, guaranteeing the integrity and accurate documentation of each sample from the point of collection to analysis. This meticulous approach ensures the reliability of the evidence presented in your legal arguments.

Conduct Analysis

Our laboratory is accredited by UKAS to ISO 17025 standards, and we uphold extremely high standards to maintain this accreditation. Our expert Research and Development team performs comprehensive validation work on all our methods to ensure the integrity and accuracy of our tests. This research is regularly published in respected scientific journals. Accurate analysis is critical as it lays the foundation for interpreting results within a legal framework.

Expert Witness Reporting

Following the analysis, our specialists deliver a comprehensive interpretation of the results, contextualised within the relevant legal frameworks. The final report, prepared for court presentation, supports your case with compelling scientific evidence.
