What is Toxicology? Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemicals (including prescription or illicit drugs) on living organisms, understanding of basic properties and actions of chemicals, and the means to prevent or alter such effects.  In addition to therapeutic agents, toxicologists examine many environmental agents and chemical compounds that are synthesized by humans or that originate in nature.   The relationship between dose and its effects on the exposed individual is of high significance in toxicology. The chief criterion regarding the toxicity of a chemical is the dose, i.e. the amount of exposure to the substance. The toxic effects of these agents may range from disturbances in growth patterns, discomfort, disease, or death.  At ACL we provide invaluable service to our clients.  We raise the bar in result turnaround time, the accuracy of our test results, and clinical support.  Advanced Clinical Laboratories is certified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
