HAIR FOLLICLE TESTING
Hair follicle drug testing is the most accurate way to identify drug use over a long period of time, it provides history and longer detection periods than any other drug testing method.
Since hair growth is fed by the bloodstream, drug metabolites taken orally, via injection, snorted, or smoked, are delivered into each hair strand via the bloodstream and embedded inside the hair shaft. Hence, external contaminants and commercial products like shampoos, bleaches and other hair chemicals will not alter the test results.
Human head hair grows at a rate of approximately 0.5 inches (1.27cm) each month. Every 1.5 inches (3.8cm) of head hair detects a 90 period. Testing can be conducted up to a 12-month period, hair length permitting.
ADVANTAGES OF HAIR DRUG TESTING:
- Longer window of detection, months instead of hours/days (urine)
- Can’t be cheated
- Differentiates between one-off incidents and addictive behaviour.
- Easier to collect, store and transport. We can even come to you.
