What is involved with Hair Strand Drug Testing?

What are the benefits of Hair Strand Drug Testing?

There is a unique long window of detection covering a period of months with hair stand drug testing.  In comparison to other testing such as blood or urine where the time period can be as little as a couple of days.

Drugs remain locked in hair for as long as the hair is there.  Drugs will remain in the hair almost permanently.  This means that for example 12 centimetres of hair can show drug usage over the past 12 months.

The testing can determine which specific drugs have been used.

Hair strand testing allows for sectional month by month analysis so that trends and patterns of drug usage can be seen.

Simple and quick sample collection, involves just a sample of hair being taken.  Whereas blood and urine testing can be more invasive.

This testing is commonly used and accepted as evidence in cases involving children in the Family Courts.
