Using a sample of hair around the thickness of a pencil allows for a historical overview of drug use. The method is non-invasive, simple and painless for the donor. All collections are carried out by our trained collectors who ensure the sample is taken as neatly and discreetly as possible whilst maintaining a strict chain of custody. As head hair grows at approximately 1 cm per month, we can use a hair sample to report drug usage in two ways:
An average of the total period of analysis e.g. 3 cm of hair can demonstrate whether an individual took significant quantities of heroin at some point in the last 3 months.
A segmented month by month analysis e.g. 3 cm of hair taken in October can demonstrate whether an individual took significant quantities of heroin in July, but has abstained in August and September.

All blood samples are safely collected by trained phlebotomists and are securely transported to the laboratory.
