Our main objective is to offer a public service for assessment, analyses, diagnostic and research in toxicology, mainly addressed to Administration, and especially to Justice Administration.

At the moment, the Service is divided in four sections, which correspond with the four main fields of knowledge of Toxicology: Food Safety, Veterinary Toxicology, Environmental Toxicology and Forensic Toxicology. The latter section is included, as a specific unit, in the recently set up “External Service of Forensic Sciences and Techniques” of the University of Murcia.
