The term “toxicology” may be a little confusing to the average person. We all know what “toxic” means, whether dealing with food or environmental abuse or even harsh language: basically, it means poisonous. But what do we mean by a “toxicology laboratory”? To be classified as toxicological, a lab has to be focused upon determining how chemicals are affecting a biological (that is, a living) organism. When new pharmaceuticals or cosmetics are being prepared for the market, they are first tested in a toxicology lab for any adverse effects that could threaten the health of consumers. Toxicology technicians run experiments to see what kinds of reactions the chemicals contained in such products are likely to produce. Toxicology labs also analyze the chemical contents of substances to determine what’s in them. And it’s the toxicology lab that tests samples of human bodily fluids to monitor the way that chemicals introduced into an individual’s system are affecting him or her.
