Testing for illegal substances in hair gives a far greater window of detection than urine, blood or saliva samples. Simply order our hair drug testing kit, then arrange for a sample to be collected.
We are able to detect drugs in hair samples for several months – if not years, depending on the length of the hair. We can test any length of hair, however with longer hair, we cut the samples into 3cm long sections in order to maintain the sensitivity and accuracy of the test.
We can test for Amphetamines / Methamphetamines, Benzodiazepines, Buprenorphine, Cannabis, Cathinone, Cocaine, Ketamine, Mephedrone, Methadone, Opiates, Pethidine, Tramadol. (Alcohol tests EtG and EtG / FAEE are available by quotation).
The most popular request we receive is for a 3 month history of drug use or indeed, abstinence. Hair typically grows at a rate of about 1 cm per month, so a 3 cm (1 ¼ inches) long hair sample is required.
The profile of drug use history can range from 1 month to over 2 years – if the person’s hair is 24cm long or more.
The test results are admissible in court as long as the hair collection has been conducted or witnessed by a professional person (Doctor, Lawyer, Dentist, Magistrate, Police Officer etc).
