In this lab, the student learns the difference between forensic chemistry and forensic toxicology. They gain knowledge in understanding how over-the-counter drugs, controlled drugs, and illegal drugs may act as toxins. Students will have the opportunity to perform presumptive chemical tests on drugs and poisons, identify unknown samples based on chemical test results and examine urine for evidence of heavy metal poisoning using chromatography. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included. This kit contains enough material for 15 groups.
