Accurate Diagnostics use the most innovative technologies to analyze hair samples for drug presence. This method can detect drug use for the previous 90 days and is well known as a sure test that cannot be fooled. The hair analysis is emerging as the drug test of choice by most companies around the United States.
How it works: Ingested drugs circulate in a person’s bloodstream; in turn, this nourishes the developing hair follicle. Trace amounts of the drugs become entrapped in the core of the hair shaft in amounts roughly proportional to those ingested.
Why hair analysis? These drug residues cannot be washed away, bleached out, or flushed out and are very stable over time. Thus, an accurate drug history can be obtained from the hair of any individual.
Saliva analysis is another fairly new innovation in drug testing that many people choose due to its non-invasive nature.
How it works: Trace amounts of ingested drugs are present in saliva. Accurate Diagnostics have the capability of administering tests which will register the presence of these drugs.
Why saliva analysis? Because it is a simple procedure that it is much less invasive than urinalysis, and our technique of saliva test administration prevents tampering and ensures an unadulterated test.
The most common form of drug testing involves taking a urine sample. Urine contains indication of recent drug use, and urinalysis is ideal for random and/or pre-employment testing.
Accurate Diagnostics provide collectors, specimen bottles, and chain-of-custody documentation to facilitate testing and to ensure validity of test.
We will also help you or your company set up a drug-testing program, complete with employee seminars, training, record keeping and reporting.
Fingernails, like hair, are made of the protein keratin. Results of a fingernail sample will represent drug use that is approximately six months previous history for a thirty day window of detection.
Fingernails can be clipped, or, if length does not allow, can be shaved in a safe and pain-free sample collection.
Why fingernail analysis? This is commonly used when the person being tested doesn’t have enough hair to sample and is much less invasive then the urinalysis.
