Matrix Hair Testing
Hair testing is ideal when a longer period of detection is required. This type of testing is widely used in the legal sector.
The benefits of opting for hair testing include the fact that a substance will remain detectable in a sample for a considerable time after the hair has been removed from the head. This fact makes a historical case of drug use easier to establish. In addition, as the collection is non-invasive it is difficult to adulterate a sample.
Matrix Diagnostics provides clients with a service to test for a wide range of substances detectable in hair samples. Our rapid turn-around service tests for the following drugs: Amphetamine, Benzodiazepines, Cannabis (THC), Cocaine, Mephedrone, Methadone, Methamphetamine (including MDMA & MDEA), Opiates and Tramadol.
Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEE) are used to detect alcohol abuse/prove abstinence. We also provide testing for a wide panel of NPS (new psychoactive substances) and a full hair steroids panel.
Customers, can if they wish, use our collectors to obtain samples. We can alternatively supply the necessary kits to facilitate the rapid dispatch to our laboratory, immediately following the collection.
