Forensic Science 

ChemCentre plays a key role in the administration of justice in Western Australia. Our forensic science experts provide high quality, defensible chemical analysis and testing for the Office of the State Coroner, Western Australian Police and other government agencies and regularly provide expert testimony in legal proceedings.

ChemCentre works closely with police in the fight against illicit drug use and clandestine drug manufacture and is one of the world’s leading laboratories in the testing of illicit and synthetic drugs. We also support police in keeping our roads safe through the provision of alcohol and drug analyses. As well as these essential government services, we also offer commercial testing services to property owners or tenants to detect any toxic waste or residue which may have resulted from the use of chemicals in clandestine drug laboratories where illicit drugs have been produced.

Our specialist racing chemistry team delivers comprehensive analytical and consultative services to Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA), WA’s controlling authority for thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing, to ensure the integrity of the industry is maintained.

Private industry clients as well as government agencies can also access a range of bespoke toxicology products within our community health toxicology services.These services complement traditional workplace drug testing policies and include a range of services such as alcohol and blood drug analyses, as well as consultative services.
