Whenever matter is submitted to the criminalistics laboratory of the Nebraska State Patrol for chemical analysis to determine if the matter is, or contains, a controlled substance, the report of that analysis shall be admissible in any preliminary hearing in any court in Nebraska as prima facie evidence of the identity, nature, and quantity of the matter analyzed. Nothing in this section is intended to require the use of a laboratory report in a preliminary hearing or to prohibit the use of other evidence, including circumstantial evidence, in the preliminary hearing to establish the identity, nature, and quantity of a controlled substance.
