A Scalable Solution Perfect for Toxicology Labs
The practice of toxicology covers a wide swath of disciplines and specialties including aquatic, clinical or diagnostic, drug treatment, environmental, forensics, and pain management. The most prevalent types are drug testing and pain management laboratories. Toxicology labs may be a commercial standalone, an in-house facility as found in many hospitals or attached as a health facility department operated by a state or municipality.
For clinical toxicology laboratories, testing is focused on identifying drugs and other chemicals within the blood, urine, saliva, or other bodily fluids either as qualitative, quantitative, or confirmation testing. The drugs tested for may be swallowed, inhaled, injected, or absorbed through the skin or mucous membrane. Reported clinical data must comply with HL7 standards.
The use of a LIMS for toxicology laboratories is now imperative. The sensitivity of the information gathered, the reporting requirements as well the need to process large amounts of samples with precision all dictate a proper, and effective system is in place.
