Step 12: Toxicology Examination
It is the DRE's job to obtain the specimen that will be sent to the laboratory for chemical analysis. He must follow proper procedure as well as the lab that will be doing the testing. They have to ensure proper handling, packaging, and delivery of the specimen. Failure to do this may result in the evidence being excluded from the case.
