Time is a critical element to getting child custody cases resolved effectively without excessive costs.

We understand the desire of government and the family court service to reduce costs and improve delivery of expert witness services.  At Cansford we are very conscious that delays in getting results of testing can be very frustrating.  It can lead to extra costs, as Court cases have to be put back.  And worse, it can add to the trauma that children have to suffer because resolution takes so long.

Cansford Laboratories have been busy  researching and developing new Laboratory procedures for analysing hair samples to give full profiles of what drugs/alcohol people have been taking. We are still leading the way in the industry.

You will receive results within 3 days from sample receipt in the Laboratory

We have designed new Laboratory procedures for analysing hair samples for drugs and alcohol.

We have devised new processes that enables the delivery of results within 3 days.


Fast results at no extra cost to you

We have optimised the production of reports so that, as well as Certificates of Analysis, we can produce statements that can be read out in court for only £50 and NO delay to the reporting.


You will receive proven high quality results

The procedure has been fully audited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service to ISO 17025 standards and the certificate can be viewed on the UKAS website.

The procedures are fully automated with all steps monitored by an information system that identifies where the samples is at every stage of its travel from sample taking to final report production.  Full chain of custody procedures guarantee that all samples have to be processed individually and uniquely, with a record of all that happens.  From the time the sample is taken and validated at the collection stage there is no chance of any mix up with the sample.

 We consistently deliver the results and expert reports within 3 days.
