Hair Follicle Testing

Hair Follicle Testing is one of the only ways to get a long term in depth assessment (about 90 days using head hair and 1 year using body hair) to determine if someone has been using drugs. This is a great test for an employer or parent and the one courts use for almost all child custody cases. Simple specimen collection and highly accurate results that meet the same reference standards as urine testing. In addition, there are no known reliable methods for cheating this test.

Negative results are reported within 48 hours of receipt at the laboratory, and positive results are confirmed using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) within 72 hours. Hair testing is also forensically defensible. Medical Review Officer (MRO) is included at no additional cost, if needed, to make sure you don't get a positive result because of a valid prescription.

Basics & Benefits of Hair Follicle Testing

Hair testing is the most accurate and effective method of finding users of drugs of abuse. Using a small sample of hair cut at the scalp, hair analysis evaluates the amount of drug metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft. The collector only needs a small amount of hair (about 90-120 strands), which is cut as close as possible to the scalp. This collection typically does not leave any visible spots or changes in appearance.

It is the most commonly used test for custody cases because it is accurate, tests for a long period of time and is virtually impossible to cheat. Because many drugs are no longer detectable in urine sample after 3 days, hair follicle testing is growing in popularity for pre-employment testing and parents testing their teens. The validity of hair testing has been upheld by courts across the United States in both civil and criminal cases.
