Hair Follicle Drug Testing
We offer several different hair follicle drug testing panels, including a 5 panel, 5 panel with expanded opiates, 7 panel, 9 panel, 12 panel and a 14 panel.
Drugs are not detectable in the hair for a period of approximately 7 to 10 days after use because it takes approximately that amount of time for drugs to reach the hair follicle. On average, drugs are detectable in the hair for a period of 45 to 60 days after use. In some situations, drugs can be detected in the hair for up to 90 days, depending on the growth rate of an individual’s hair. Hair follicle drug testing is better for detection of a high usage situation and is NOT ideal for one time use.
The collection involves cutting, not pulling the hair, and therefore is painless. Only a small patch of hair is cut from an inconspicuous area and is not typically noticed after collection
Negative test results for hair follicle drug screenings are typically available in 2 to 5 business days, not including the day of collection. Test results can be emailed, mailed or faxed immediately upon being received.
