Drugs are deposited in the hair shaft through absorption into the hair follicle. Testing is conducted on the hair shaft which prevents external contamination on the outside of the hair that may occur during accidental exposure, such as being in the same vicinity as someone using drugs. Traces of drugs will remain in the hair longer than in the urine or the blood providing a much longer detection window. Most often a 90 day detection window is requested for hair follicle drug tests.
The 10 Panel Drug Test, Hair Follicle tests hair clippings for the presence/use of 10 drugs, generally for a detection period that includes the previous 3 months. The test will cover use of the following drugs:
- Marijuana (THC)
- Opiates (Codeine & Morphine)
No, you do not need to provide a doctor’s order to get lab testing done at Sethi labs.
Test results are generally available within five (5) business days after your specimen is collected.
Walk-in appointments are available.
We recommend you share your results with your physician.
