What Hair Testing Is Used For That, You Might Not Have Guessed

A hair strand sample can reveal much about a person, including their potential drug use. Did you know that hair follicle testing is considered the most accurate form of drug testing, offering the longest detection window available?

Hair Testing

At MedPhysicals Plus, we take pride in offering hair and nail drug testing as part of our advanced laboratory services, which are court-admissible for various proceedings.

Hair and nail testing is commonly employed to detect drug metabolites embedded in keratin structures throughout the body. This means that hair from the head, face, and body, as well as fingernails and toenails, can be utilized for this type of testing. We provide customizable testing options with multiple specimen choices to best meet your needs.

The procedure of hair testing

Most hair tests require at least 150mg of root hair. Please note that treated or dyed hair, as well as painted fingernails, are not valid specimens. In these situations, we will select another specimen type to ensure a sufficient quantity for testing. Head hair and body hair cannot be mixed.

MPP can detect drug metabolites from usage up to six months ago—the longest detection window available on the market.

ChildGuard hair exposure drug testing

MedPhysicals Plus offers legal medical services, including paternity DNA testing. Did you know that we also provide ChildGuard hair exposure drug testing?

Detecting dangerous environments is paramount to keeping a child safe. ChildGuard testing can be particularly beneficial where other exposure drug tests fall short. It is the only drug test designed to detect passive exposure to drugs, distinguishing between native drugs and drug metabolites in hair specimens.
