With the very latest equipment and experienced analytical toxicologists, we are able to undertake a wide range of customer led research and development projects. These complement our own work to help increase the body of toxicology knowledge and offer our own scientists professional development.
We have partnerships with several major forensic science laboratories to undertake specialist toxicological analysis that only our toxicologists can perform using our state of the art instrumentation and techniques.
We utilise high specification instrumentation, not normally associated with an operational toxicology laboratory and collaborate with major equipment manufacturers to provide a state of the art service. This includes time of flight mass spectrometry that can pinpoint specific toxic molecules or metabolites as well as high speed liquid chromatography. We can go further than any laboratory in the UK to ensure that casework is subjected to the most rigorous and highest level toxicological investigation.
THE PROFESSIONAL’S EXPERT
Our R&D initiative is led by our Consultant Forensic Toxicologist with many years of toxicology experience. As one of three published toxicologists in the company, we have an impressive and demonstrable track record of research capabilities.
Apart from published work in the public domain, our operational R&D mirrors customer led queries, eg determining potential poisons found at a crime scene or active ingredient take up of topical pharmaceuticals. All research and development is undertaken under the strictest confidentiality.
UNKNOWN TOXICOLOGY PROBLEM?
WE CAN HELP
Apart from published work in the public domain, our operational R&D in casework has been used to determine potential poisons found at a crime scene, or to identify unknown compounds detected in biological samples.
All research and development is undertaken under the strictest confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.
