Attending SOFT and TIAFT members are made up of toxicologists, scientists, laboratory managers, technicians, medical examiners, coroners, attorneys and researchers in the field of forensic toxicology.
The Randox Toxicology workshop; The Evolution of Immunoassay Drug Testing with multiplex Biochip Array Technology aims to educate attendees on optimising laboratory resources and improving workflow through the implementation of multiplex Biochip Array Technology.
