Toxicology Reporting

Reports are expert statements from Toxicologists, detailing the detection, isolation, and identification of drugs or alcohol in each sample. The expert statement will also include a detailed interpretation of the results and a conclusion of the findings. 

Obtaining a toxicology report can provide a clearer understanding of the results, which can assist, along with other evidence, toward the overall outcome of a case.

Toxicology reports can vary based on the specific needs of each client.
However, they generally include:

  • Matrices for testing
  • Testing methods: What was tested for and the period of detection.
  • Detailed analysis of lab results: Analysis of results and how this correlates with ingestion. Cross-analysis with any statements provided by the donor or findings identified by the requesting authority.
  • Cited research to support findings: Cited research including copies and interpretation of how this supports the Toxicologists findings.
  • Explanation of the findings: In summary, the Toxicologist will provide a conclusion based on the interpretation and research findings.

Circumstances requiring Toxicology reports can vary widely and can include:

  • Child safety matters
  • Custodial cases
  • Drink spiking/drugging
  • Drug facilitated crime/sexual assault
  • Drug dependency/Rehabilitation programmes
  • Workplace monitoring/Return to work programs
