Forensic toxicology services


With some of the UKs most highly skilled forensic toxicologists, Forensic can assist the Crown Prosecution Service and Police with even the most complex of criminal cases


Our forensic toxicologist can undertake:


Forensic case reviews

Some of the more serious criminal offences, involving drugs or poisons, require a significant amount of expert interpretation of the evidence and expert opinions in relation to the significance of that evidence, before a prosecution for such an offence could be considered.


Forensic case reviews - case example

Do you have a suspected attempted murder, involving administration of a noxious substance, which you feel should be committed for trial, but, based on the analyses already carried out and the scientific statements so far received, appears to lack the strength of evidence necessary pursue a prosecution?


How can our forensic toxicologists help?

Our toxicologists have many years of experience in examining and reporting complex toxicology cases, involving advanced case strategies and expert interpretation of the evidence.

How can we help?

Our toxicologists have years of experience in working their way methodically and systematically through toxicology cases with a maze of exhibits and planning and executing complex case strategies, in order to obtain best evidence to support a successful prosecution.
