Expert reports and witnesses

Expert reports and witnesses

Lextox expert reports are written by our own team of laboratory experts, with over 100 years’ combined experience. We can also provide expert witnesses to attend court to explain test results, including the sample analysis and chain of custody.

Expert reports

Our expert reports are designed to provide a clear interpretation of results so that you can make informed critical decisions. Our reports are also useful in court as they detail chain of custody procedures and case specific information such as the use of medications and hair treatments.

Expert witnesses

In addition to our reports, we can also provide expert testimony in court to explain testing results, including sample analysis and chain of custody. Our laboratory analysts and reporting scientists are Bond Solon trained and routinely report on over 1,000 family law cases every month, which resulted in increased awareness of hair.

Please note, our preferred method of giving evidence is via remote video link or telephone but we can attend in-person where necessary.

Certificate of analysis

If an expert report is not required for court purposes, we can provide the results in the format of a certificate of analysis. This will list the drugs and analytes that we have analysed and indicate if they have been detected or not.

Certificates of analysis are still reviewed and issued by our scientists and further interpretation in the form of an expert report can be requested at a later stage.
