Although Psychemedics pioneered the commercial use of hair testing for abuse drugs in 1986, our scientists actually have forty years of practical knowledge, publishing groundbreaking research that hair follicles provided a means to detect drug use in 1979. For a drug test using hair analysis, a sample of a person’s hair is sent to a laboratory to detect illicit drug use using various scientifically-validated testing methods. The two tests used by Psychemedics to analyze hair samples for the presence of drugs of abuse are an FDA-cleared immunoassay test followed by confirmation by mass spectrometry.
The Psychemedics hair drug testing analysis has been chosen by the most recognized brands in the Fortune 500, a wide variety and cross-section of national and international businesses, some of the largest and most respected law enforcement agencies, and schools across the nation.
We have detected more drug users for more companies than any hair testing lab in the world.
If an employer requires a pre-employment drug test, you can assume that the company wants to hire drug-free candidates. If they require random testing of employees, you can assume they are serious about eliminating the higher costs and risks to their business that typically come with drug use. A Psychemedics drug test using hair analysis detects more drugs than any other test. It can detect 6-10X more drugs than a urine test and 2-3X more than other hair tests.
With a drug test using urine, there is safety in numbers. The detection rate is low, and the drugs can only be detected for a few days after use. You might literally get lost in the crowd of people tested. Not with Psychemedics. We detect drugs used months ago rather than a few days back, and our technology misses virtually nothing.
If a company uses the Psychemedics hair test for drugs, they are serious about identifying all high-risk applicants or employees.
