Services

In these times of increased laboratory costs, the ETSU Toxicology Lab offers clinical services at fees that are significantly lower than current discounted market rates.  We offer a 24 hour turn around for results, Monday through Friday, on specimens received by 9:00 am, as well as consultations on our results.  Some tests performed include: various drug screens (blood, gastric, urine); blood and urine alcohol; volatiles (acetone, isopropanol and methanol) and ethylene glycol; and therapeutic drug monitoring including acetaminophen, carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, salicylates, theophylline and valproic acid.
