Sparrow’s Toxicology Department is designed to perform analyses to assist the legal community and to analyze post-mortem results.

The highly trained technical and support staff perform testing under the direction of a board-certified forensic toxicologist who is available for professional consultation and as an expert witness.

Toxicology’s work covers:

  • Human performance forensic toxicology focuses on behavioral situations to assist the law enforcement, judicial and educational communities with DUI investigations and athletic drug testing, among other areas.
  • Post-mortem forensic analyses often involve comprehensive drug testing in blood, urine and other biological materials. Toxicology also offers quantitative information for drugs and other abused substances identified in blood, as well as a variety of other analyses.
