Hair Drug Testing with LC-MS/MS

Hair-drug test exclusively provides a longer detection window than other methods such as blood, urine or saliva test. Hair-drug test can detect drug abuse/chemical intake history for up to several months. Besides, it can detect more substances in the same test comparing with other common testing services in the market. Another uniqueness of hair testing is that it is able to provide more accurate result because the detected level is not usually affected by external factors such as drinking a large amount of water and hence causing adulteration. Moreover, procedures of hair sample collection are easy and less invasive. Furthermore, hair test is empowered with the HPLC-MS/MS technology which has sensitivity up to picogram level in one milligram of hair (pg/mg).
