Pharmaceutical
Specialty Toxicology Testing


Toxicological testing of drugs is also available on other fluids other than the more common blood, serum, or urine, and solids. These include CSF, Stool, Saline, IV Solution, etc. Typical specimen requirements are minimum of 2 mls (liquid) and/or 2.0 gr (solid). If this is not available, we will work with what you provide us. Most test can be done on a Stat basis. If available, please provide us with as much information as possible about the case (i.e. suspected drugs, amount, etc.).
