The UMMC toxicology department is the only clinically oriented laboratory in the state to provide comprehensive toxicology testing. The department is staffed from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday with personnel on call after hours and weekends for emergency requests.

The toxicology department is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to our patients, as promptly as possible. The department offers a comprehensive test menu, including blood lead, comprehensive drug screens, confirmation of drugs of abuse by GC/MS, ethylene glycol and volatile alcohols (methanol, ethanol, acetone and isopropanol).
