Toxicology / Nutritional Testing
Feed, Water, Soil, Environmental Testing

You can consult with a toxicologist (Dr. Patricia Talcott, 509.335.0807) to facilitate the selection of the appropriate test(s).

We offer a wide variety of testing, including screens that test for multiple substances as well as testing for individual elements, minerals and substances.

 

Below is a list of the screens and tests that we offer.  Other tests may be available upon request.  Please call the Analytical Sciences Laboratory (208) 885-7466 or Dr. Patricia Talcott at (509) 335-0807, if the test you are looking for is not listed.

To find specific information about individual tests and screens such as the testing schedule, specimen types, and prices, please go to our

and type in one of the test names below or "toxicology" for a list of all toxicology test.

 

Screens

Anticoagulant Rodenticide Screen (includes brodifacoum, bromadiolone, chlorophacinone, diphacinone, difenacoum, difethialone, warafin)
Carbamate Pesticide screen
Chlorinated Herbicide Screen (includes 2,4-D, dicamba, bromoxynil, MCPA)
Ionophore Screen(includes monesin, narasin, lasalocid, salinomycin)
Melamine Screen(includes melamine, ammeline, ammelide, cyanuric acid)
Organic Toxicology Screen by GC-MS
Organochlorine pesticide screen
Organophosphate pesticide screen
Selenium and Copper screen
(tissue)
Trace Element Screen (serum, plasma) (includes calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc.  Sodium and potassium by request)
Trace Mineral Screen
(tissue) (includes arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, iron, lead, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, zinc)

The laboratory is moving away from tissue ICP testing, and toward tissue ICP-MS testing. Tissue (liver, kidney) mineral testing is now available under the Trace Mineral Screen that includes 12 elements. This method provides better sensitivity with lower reporting limits, to accommodate smaller sample sizes.
