Poisoning is not uncommon and identifiying poisons requires both analtical techniques, an understanding of the effects and how the body handles the substance. While typically thought of in a forensic contect, a clinical toxicology laboratory focuses on investigating patients.

Dr Ian D Watson is a retired consultant clinical biochemist and toxicologist formerly at the University Hospital Aintree, Liverpool. He will discuss the methodologies used from a historical context progressing to current practice.
