Legal Drug and Alcohol Test

Nail Testing

Nail clipping analysis from either fingernails or toenails can give an overview of drug and alcohol use covering 6-12 months (Fingernail clippings 6 months overview & Toenails 12-month overview).

Hair Testing

  • In order to gain a clear picture of how long a client has been using Alcohol or Drugs a hair sample is recommended. On average a person’s head hair grows 1cm per month within this timeframe a proportion of a Drugs metabolites will enter the hair folic. 
  • The hair sample collected will give an overview of drugs ingested during that time frame, as an example if a 3-month window is required for analysis then a 3cm portion of hair is required. Giving us a chance to analyse the hair on a month-to-month basis to indicate which months the client has consumed drugs or alcohol. 
  • To gain a more in-depth view of drug use it is recommended that hair be segmented, and each segment analysed separately for drug or alcohol use. This gives a clearer picture over which months drugs or alcohol were ingested.
