Pacific Toxicology Laboratories (PacTox), located in Chatsworth, California, is a privately owned company that performs five distinct lab functions under one roof - drug testing, biological monitoring, medical surveillance, therapeutic drug monitoring, and forensic toxicology. PacTox's competitive advantage is its unique ability to provide integrated biological testing services. Clients include corporations, medical and occupational health clinics, academic and government researchers, district and defense attorneys, and physicians and other health professionals.

In today's heavily regulated health care environment, many organizations are required to satisfy the security mandates outlined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. To that end, laboratories like PacTox are investing in enhanced automation software to slash costs, streamline information flow, and provide better testing and faster results for their patients.
