Hair testing is the most accurate and effective method of finding users of drugs of abuse. Using small sample of hair cut at the scalp, hair analysis evaluates the amount of drug metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft.
Since each hair has its own directly blood supply, the ingestion of any illegal drugs will be transport by blood and trapped by the hair, which can be revealed by analysis a small sample of hair. Our testing method measures the drug molecules and the metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminated external contamination as a source of a positive test result.
Hair sample, the only time limitation for detection drug usage is imposed by the length of the donor’s hair. Each ½ inch of the head hair provides a 30-days history of drug use. The standard of the industry is the to test 1.5 inches, which provides a 90-days history of the donor’s drug use.
If no head hair’s available, body hair can be use. Bleaches, shampoos and external contaminants ( i.e marijuana smoke) have no known impact on test results.
In order to maintain high accuracy and reliability, and fullfill the licensing requirements of all authorities, the laboratory has simultaneously employed proficient methodologies.
Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methodology, which has been proven reliable for the routine drug testing. Any sample that test presumptively positive in the screening process are then subjected to gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), gas Chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (GC/MS), or Liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) confirmation testing.
The testing sensitivity and report accuracy meet international standards and the courts also recognize hair test results for Legal and forensic purpose.
