Hair testing for drugs and substances of abuse
At Lextox, we provide drug testing services via hair strand analysis. This provides a unique window of detection covering months, rather than days or hours. We offer a month by month segmental analysis, a bi-weekly analysis or an overview.
Hair grows at an average rate of 1cm per month; therefore a 3cm section of scalp hair can provide an approximate 3 month retrospective profile of drug use.
Our experts analyse hair samples to detect trace amounts of drugs and their metabolites (a substance produced by the body when a drug is taken and can be used to show direct usage). From our laboratory analysis we can provide an expert interpretation on the levels of drugs detected.
