Utah Public Health Laboratory

Forensic Toxicology Laboratory

The Forensic Toxicology Laboratory analyzes body fluids and tissues to determine the presence of alcohol, drugs, and other substances. Toxicology results are used to:

  • assist medical examiners in determining cause and manner of death; and
  • assist law enforcement agencies in cases involving driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs, automobile homicides, and other crimes.

Toxicology staff conduct the analyses, issue reports on their findings, and provide court testimony to interpret the test results.
