About the NPIS - laboratory tests and antidotes

Updated 5/2018

Can the NPIS help with unusual laboratory tests and antidotes?

The NPIS units are all located in major UK teaching hospitals which have associated laboratory facilities.

In addition, TOXBASE® also provides a link to "Assay Finder", a web-service providing information on availability of assays in the UK and details of sample requirements.
