Hair Testing - Screen4

Hair Drug Testing

An introduction to hair drug testing

Hair testing in a laboratory provides a record of drug use over a number of months, which gives a much longer history than by using other sample types and methods. 

By taking 1cm sections of the hair sample, we can analyse what has been taken month by month, to give a far more detailed and concise report on use. This means hair testing can show periods of drug use and periods of abstinence, as well as being able to identify which drugs have been taken.

We report the information as analysed in a clear impartial manner to ensure complete transparency of the data so it can be clearly understood by all those parties involved, in what is usually a very emotive and distressing time.

We provide a comprehensive report and Certificate of Analysis within the same document to allow simple understanding of the issues and the actual test data.
