Toxicology

Examiners in the Toxicology specialty analyze urine and blood for the presence of drugs. Testing for alcohol or inhalants is not included in toxicology testing and must be requested separately.

General Information

Types of Kits offered by Forensic Services:

Urine Kits - These kits are for urine samples that are going to be tested for drugs. We no longer have separate kits for DRE and NJDT, simply mark at the top of the form included in this kit which type of sample you collected! Please Note: If you are a DRE Officer, it is your responsibility to insert a DRE Form with the evidence (please do not seal it inside the box). Click on the link above for DRE Form if you do not have one.

Blood Kits - Use these kits when you need blood tested for alcohol or drugs (not DNA!). They have a gray top tube in them which is required to comply with IDAPA code.

Accident Victim Kits - These are provided to Coroners/Morticians only. They are only for use in compiling statistics, and remain anonymous for that reason. All of these kits will be turned into the Coeur d'Alene laboratory.

Rape Kits - Used for sexual assault cases and are provided to hospitals only. For sexual assault cases, use regular blood and urine kits (if possible) for alcohol and toxicology testing. The blood tube in the rape kit is not intended for alcohol or toxicology testing. If toxicology testing is wanted and the assault occurred within the last 12 hours, collect both blood and urine. If it has been longer than 12 hours, only collect urine (unless also requesting alcohol testing). We can only screen for GHB in urine samples. If it has been longer than 8 hours since suspected ingestion, the sample will be analyzed for GHB.
