Hair Follicle Testing
Benefits of Hair Follicle Testing
Hair Follicle Testing is a non-intrusive collection procedure that is nearly tamper proof, gender neutral, and observed. Courts, law enforcement agencies, businesses, schools and even parents are taking advantage of hair testing accuracy and window of detection. Hair Follicle Testing for drugs is the one of the only ways to get an in depth assessment of up to 90 days in the past to determine if someone has been using drugs. This is a great test for an employer or parent.
Hair Testing for a 90-Day Drug Use History
Simple specimen collection and highly accurate results that meet the same reference standards as urine testing without having to use special facilities. Fluid based specimens, require restrooms, storage, and transportation of messy and potentially infectious bodily fluids. Because specimen collection can be directly observed, the risk of adulteration is even further reduced.
We get the results back to you quicker: Negative results are reported within 24 hours of receipt at the laboratory. All positive results are confirmed using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) within 48 to 72 hours. Hair testing is also forensically defensible.
When compared with urine specimen testing, hair testing provides up to 2.5 times the number of positives and a longer detection window. Hair testing can test for the following classes of drugs:
- Amphetamines (including Ecstasy and methamphetamine)
- Opiates (Codine, Morphine&6-monoacteyl morphine)
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
Hair samples can also be tested for an extended opiate panel that includes Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Hydromorphone.
