FORENSICS

The primary focus of the Forensics Laboratory is the investigation of deaths that result from criminal activity or unnatural events.  Such investigations are ordered by a coroner.

The Forensics Laboratory is located at the Hamilton General Hospital. The team is made up of forensic pathologists and morgue technicians. Experts from the Forensics Laboratory are often called upon by the Criminal Justice system to testify for either the Crown or the defence.

They rely on macroscopic (gross) and microscopic observations. Other forensic testing includes molecular tests, chemical analysis for drugs, toxicology, metabolic and ultra structural tests.
