Forensic toxicology is an important tool to a
lawyer that provides an opportunity to determine the
identity and/or quantity of an alleged substance, or

a true representation of their findings.
Types of Forensic Toxicology Services
Ethyl alcohol (ethanol) is found and
in many types of alcoholic beverages including beer,
liquor, and wine. The concentration or level of
ethanol can be measured using blood, breath, or saliva.
Instrumentation used can be a breathalyzer (used by some
law enforcement agencies), Gas Chromatograph
Flame-Ionization Detection for blood ethanol detection,

attorney submitted to us all documents including medical
records, lab reports, etc. for us to review and to make
a determination if the person correctly identified the
alleged assailant. The attorney represents the
alleged assailant. After reviewing all the it was
