Looking Closer to Determine the Full Picture

Alere Forensics (formerly ROAR Forensics) is a leading provider of expert toxicology services, also providing training and research, utilising our thorough analytical approach to casework. Our analysts and qualified reporting team have extensive experience in supporting the investigation of a full range of Coronial and criminal cases with particular expertise in new psychoactive substances (including so-called “legal highs”/”bath salts”) and GHB (Gamma- Hydroxybutyrate). We continue to look and find the drugs in the samples analysed as we are focused on providing you with a comprehensive toxicology service supported by modern technology.

Toxicology Training

We provide a range of training courses, seminars and events to educate and provide you with clarity on the many aspects of forensics.

A Quality Service

Quality is at the core of our analytical service, which is exemplified by our scope of ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. As well as participating in a number of proficiency testing schemes, we are regularly audited and monitored by independent organisations, including UKAS, the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) and the Home Office. ISO/IEC 17025 is an internationally recognised standard for laboratory testing that is a prerequisite for police casework.
