ARCpoint Labs offer both business and private citizen hair follicle drug testing.
Hair sample drug testing is a great way to detect whether or not a person has used drugs over the past few months. Hair drug testing by our labs can provide a 90 day window of detection, which is useful for safety-critical positions where there is zero tolerance for drug use.
Hair testing is becoming one of the most utilized methods of drug testing, especially by ARCpoint Labs. We think this is because, according to our most recent information, there are no solid ways to adulterate a hair specimen in order to falsify the results of the test; despite what some retailers advertise. This, and the historical window of use, makes a hair follicle drug test very attractive to many employers and individuals who want the most accurate method of detecting drugs
How is a Hair Test Collected?
At our many labs nationwide, a hair drug test is actually quite simple and requires only a small volume of hair from an abscise spot in order to be completed.
The hair is cut as close to the scalp as possible, and then is put into a chemical solution to rid the hair of all external contaminants and is then liquefied and tested for drugs
How far back can a hair drug test detect?
In most cases, hair sample drug testing can detect drug use for up to 90 days after use. The detection window is much larger in hair drug testing because trace amounts of drug chemicals become trapped inside each hair. Like fingernail testing, hair follicles are composed of a hard protein called keratin and are tested with the same process as fingernails. Drugs are incorporated into the hair's fibers from the blood stream and remain locked in the hair as it grows.

- A hair follicle test can detect drug use for up to 90 days after use.
