Triple A Forensics was established in March 2008 to provide an independent Consultancy Service for companies, academic institutions and individuals engaged in activities associated with analytical science and forensic science.
Peter Ashton, Alex Allan, Bob Ardrey, Cathy Frew and Heidi Halstead, the principals of Triple A Forensics, have a wide range of experience as experts in toxicology and the analysis of drugs of abuse in both casework, from prosecution and defence perspectives, and civil litigation, and also in research and development environments. We act as expert witnesses for the review of scientific reports and statements and regularly appear in court.
Cathy Frew and Heidi Halstead have recently joined our consultants and bring with them considerable experience in drugs casework, drugs and toxicology training and the design, setting up and formal accreditation of analytical and forensic laboratories.
Associated with the setting up of a laboratory is the selection of appropriate methodologies for the examinations to be undertaken and we are able to provide advice on this as well as the evaluation and purchase of appropriate equipment.
We have considerable experience in the application of analytical methodologies, particularly mass spectrometry and chromatography, to a wide range of problems and undertake both short-term and long-term research and development in these areas.
We also provide introductory courses on various aspects of forensic science to the legal profession and to forensic scientists.
We have delivered bespoke training courses in mass spectrometry and chromatography for a number of years and contribute to a number of forensic science courses at universities in the UK. Further details of our training activities may be found on the "Company Activities" page of this web site.
Our publications include a book on LC-MS, published by John Wiley and Sons in 2003.
The "Current Topics" page contains a number of articles in which we review subjects which we hope will be of relevance and interest to users of this site. If there are any further topics that you feel would be useful additions please let us know.
