Private labs take over Colorado crime blood tests

DENVER (AP) - Colorado defense attorneys are concerned because private labs are taking over blood-alcohol tests and blood-drug samples normally sent to a state lab.

Beginning Monday, only three labs are certified to begin processing blood-drug specimens.
    
According to the Denver Post , the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment suspended state tests on June 28 after defense attorneys exposed an internal report by the health and environment department they say revealed potentially tainted lab results.
