This 12 panel workplace drug testing kit provides a convenient solution in monitoring your employees for the use of commonly abused drugs, as well as prescription drugs. The drug test can determine up to 90 days of drug use history and is an efficient tool for maintaining a drug-free environment in the workplace. It uses hair samples obtained from the donor to detect the presence of the following substances:
- Phencyclidine (PCP)
- Vicodin (Hydrocodone)
- Lorcet/Lortab (Hydrocodone)
- Oxycotin (Oxycodone)
- Percocet/Percodan (Oxycodone)
- Dilaudid (Hydromorphone)
A hair follicle drug test is one of the most commonly used and preferred drug testing methods in the workplace because the specimen is easy to store, has a longer window of detection and is non-invasive. Using a small sample of hair cut at the scalp, hair follicle analysis evaluates the amount of drug metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft.
Trained employees or the professional health care provider in charge at on-site collection would only need to collect 90 to 120 hair strands from the donor. Hair samples must be at least 1.5-inch in length. More strands are needed if the hair is less than 1.5 inches long or if the hair is extremely thin. If hair is short, for example only .5 inch, this length will only provide a drug use history of 30 days.
If the donor’s hair is less than .5 inch long, collect ONLY body hair (e.g. chest, leg, arm, pubic area or underarm). It is important NOT to mix head and body hair. ONLY COLLECT ONE OR THE OTHER. The collector must also complete the Custody and Control Form and mail the hair samples to the accredited lab for hair analysis using the pre-paid shipping envelope included. All hair drug test results are reviewed by a Medical Review Officer (MRO) and will be available in 2-3 business days.
This professional employee drug testing kit includes an instruction sheet detailing the proper ways to collect and store hair samples. Make sure to read the package insert prior to performing sample collection.
Drug testing in the workplace is a very common preventive measure in reducing the incidence of employee crime and violence at work. And one of the popular drug testing methods used by organizations is the hair follicle drug test. One of the advantages of hair drug test is its ability to detect drug metabolites up to 90 (30 days for every half inch of hair) days after use. The hair samples typically require lab analysis and results are available in a few days.
Using a small sample of hair cut at the scalp, hair analysis evaluates the amount of drug metabolites embedded inside the hair shaft. If no head hair is available, body hair can be used. This provides a longer window of detection of approximately 365 days. Bleaches, shampoos and external contaminants have no known impact on the results.
As there are substances that may potentially interfere with the screening, causing "false" positive results, the positive screen must be confirmed using sophisticated methods, such as GC/MS(gas chromatography/mass spectrometry).
CG/MS test is considered as the criterion standard for confirmatory testing. The method has the capability to detect small quantities of a substance and confirm the presence of a specific drug. Though time-consuming, CG/MS is known for being the most accurate, sensitive and reliable confirmatory method of testing.
The 12 panel workplace hair follicle drug test kit offered on TestCountry involves a simple collection procedure. It is easy to perform in the workplace for the random testing of employees as part of the organization’s effort to maintain a safe and drug-free work setting.
