Our laboratory is accredited by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and all tests are supervised, reviewed and approved by Ph.D. staff scientists; our laboratory staff has experience with over 1.5 million hair tests. Positive results are confirmed via a Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) method, which analyzes and reports back the levels of drugs consumed over a 90 day period (excluding marijuana/THC). There is no chance of adulteration as hair samples cannot be affected by external contaminants like shampoo, hair dye or bleach.
Hair testing is ideal for detecting drug use over a longer period of time compared to more traditional forms of drug testing (such as urine testing). A 1.5 inch section of hair can provide a historic 3 month profile of drug use or abstinence. In the case of a urine test, most drugs are undetectable if the test is conducted more than 2-3 days after use, with the exception of marijuana (THC).
The HairConfirm Express drug test kit includes overnight shipping to ensure quick results within days of mailing the sample. This kit screens for a 90-day drug use history of Marijuana (THC), Cocaine (COC), Opiates (OPI), Amphetamine (AMP), Methamphetamine (mAMP), Ecstasy (MDMA) and Phencyclidine (PCP).
