Toxicologist

A toxicologist is a scientist who, during autopsies, examines body fluids and tissue samples to assess the existence of toxins or chemicals. They operate in laboratories and use different approaches to find within the body toxic levels of medications or other poisons. Many toxicologists work to help settle criminal prosecutions and will testify on behalf of their testing reports in court.
