Forensic Blood Toxicology (QUARTZ)

Who is this scheme designed for?

The LGC AXIO QUARTZ scheme is aimed at laboratories undertaking forensic toxicology and coroners' work.

The industry challenges

Within this field of work it is essential that results provided are accurate and reliable. As they can be the deciding factor to the outcome of a police investigation to a wide range of serious cases such as suspicious deaths and drug-facilitated sexual assaults.

AXIOs solution for our partners

Participation in AXIOs QUARTZ scheme will provide independent performance assessment and confidence that results are meaningful and accurate. Consistent good performance will allow laboratories to demonstrate to third parties, customers, regulators and accreditation bodies the quality of their results.

Our AXIO QUARTZ scheme offers the choice of a number of test materials, comprising blood and urine spiked with drugs and metabolites. Case scenarios provided for interpretation include sudden and suspicious deaths, drug-facilitated sexual assaults (DFSA), impaired driving and other relevant cases.

We also supply an Alcohol Technical Defence (ATD) exercise that allows practitioners to demonstrate competency in performing these types of calculations.

Test analytes and case scenarios included in the scheme are discussed regularly with our Advisory Group. The operation of our AXIO QUARTZ scheme is supported by an Advisory Group consisting of members of professional bodies, scheme participants, and others experienced in the field.
