Hair Testing provides quantifiable results across a 90-day standard testing timeframe. Sample collection requires no special facilities and is non-invasive, with hair samples being cut close to the scalp. Hair samples cannot be substituted or diluted and are difficult to adulterate. This test is preferable for pre-employment and random screening, as it detects those who choose a lifestyle of drug use.
Hair testing is a process in which hair specimens are analyzed for the use of illicit drugs. Omega Laboratories uses detection levels and confirmation methods that follow government recommendations.
While some laboratories may take over a week to report a confirmed positive, Omega consistently achieves the same results in three business days.
Hair testing has been proven as acceptable evidence in Court systems throughout the U.S. and worldwide. Hair testing is currently used as evidence in criminal, civil, and military courts and has passed the admissibility of expert testimony known as the Frye Rule, the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the Daubert Rule.
