When working with National Autopsy Experts and considering moving forward with an independent private autopsy, this is a service that could prove to be very effective in determining causes of your loved one's passing. Toxicology aids medical or legal investigation of death, poisoning, and drug use.
Toxicology is of minimal invasiveness and can greatly assist investigation to causation of death. Specimens are collected during an autopsy. Specimens are then collected, identified, labelled, and sealed. They are then tested in a laboratory for examination and reporting.
"Forensic toxicology applies analytical toxicology to the purposes of the law, and includes the analysis of a variety of fluids and tissue samples to determine the absence or presence of drugs and poisons. Once the analytical component is complete, the toxicologist has the equally challenging aspects of interpreting the findings" (NFSTC, 2013).
