Analytical Toxicology

Analytical toxicology is the detection, identification, and measurement of foreign compounds in biological and other specimens. Analytical methods are available for a wide range of compounds like chemicals, pesticides, drugs and natural toxins. Analytical toxicology is used in the diagnosis, management, prognosis, and prevention of poisoning. Analytical toxicology laboratories may be involved in activities such as the assessment of exposure following chemical incidents, forensic analyses, therapeutic drug monitoring and monitoring for drugs of abuse. They may also be involved in research like determining the pharmacokinetic and toxicokinetic properties. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry are generally used today in analytical toxicology.
