Poison Testing Services



Poison Definition:

Poisoning occurs when any substance interferes with normal body functions after it is swallowed, inhaled, injected, or absorbed. The branch of medicine that deals with the detection and treatment of poisons is known as toxicology.
Poisonings are a common occurrence. About 10 million cases of poisoning occur in the United States each year. In 80% of the cases, the victim is a child under the age of five. About 50 children die each year from poisonings. Curiosity, inability to read warning labels, a desire to imitate adults, and inadequate supervision lead to childhood poisonings.
The elderly are the second most likely group to be poisoned. Mental confusion, poor eyesight, and the use of multiple drugs are the leading reasons why this group has a high rate of accidental poisoning. A substantial number of poisonings also occur as suicide attempts or drug overdoses.
Poisons are common in the home and workplace, yet there are basically two major types. One group consists of products that were never meant to be ingested or inhaled, such as shampoo, paint thinner, pesticides, houseplant leaves, and carbon monoxide. The other group contains products that can be ingested in small quantities, but which are harmful if taken in large amounts, such as pharmaceuticals, medicinal herbs, or alcohol. Other types of poisons include the bacterial toxins that cause food poisoning, such as Escherichia coli; heavy metals, such as the lead found in the paint on older houses; and the venom found in the bites and stings of some animals and insects. The staff at a poison control center and emergency room doctors have the most experience diagnosing and treating poisoning cases

Could it be possible that your loved one or friend may have died from poisoning? Perhaps they are currently suffering from poisoning at the hand of a perpetrator? Have they passed on? Are they crying out for your help? Do you feel uneasy when you think about the uncertainty surrounding your loved one’s or friends death? Do you ever wonder how you can respond to their cry for help?

Unknown Chemicals and Toxins

We also offer a chemical/unknown toxin evaluation:

testing for unknown drugs This test seeks out both organic (chemical compounds derived from plants, animals and carbon) inorganic compounds (non-living, non hydrocarbon, compounds) plus unknown chemicals, poisons and toxins that include pesticides, organic exposure chemicals, painting or cleaning products, rodent poisons, volatiles (evaporating rapidly) e.g. Acetone, paints and lacquers, cleaning supplies, adhesives, photographic supplies and many others plus inhalable substances e.g. medicine, allergens, nitrous oxide, toluene, gasoline, paint thinner and others. This analysis does not test for drugs or heavy metals e.g. Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Chromium, Cadmium, and other heavy/toxic

Our organic chemical/unknown toxin and heavy metals evaluation scan a test sample using GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) following pretesting preparations. The detected results of the GC/MS data is then compared against the Mass Spectral Libraries data. The principal mass spectrometry database is the Wiley/NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology)

Antifreeze ( Ethylene Glycol)


          Little Antifreeze in your food or Drink could kill you


Today’s antifreeze is primarily ethylene glycol used in internal combustion engines for cooling and to prevent freezing. Ethylene glycol solutions became available in 1927 and were marketed as “permanent antifreeze,” a clear, colorless, odorless, liquid with a sweet taste. Antifreeze can produce dangerous toxicity effects, even death, in both humans and animals when ingested. Many cases of ethylene glycol poisoning are due to the accidental ingestion of this toxin by children. They may take in large amounts since the substance tastes good. Alcoholics may also drink it as a substitute for alcohol (ethanol).
