Urine Testing

Urine testing is the most common form of drug testing in Columbia, SC. The urine screen detects Marijuana use for 4 – 6 weeks, and the period of detection for other drugs is 48 to 78 hours.

While urine screens can detect marijuana use for an extended period of 4 to 6 weeks, the detection window for other drugs is typically shorter, ranging from 48 to 78 hours. This timeframe can vary depending on factors such as the specific substance, dosage, and an individual's metabolism.

Hair Testing

The hair is nourished by the bloodstream. Chemical metabolites consumed by the donor are therefore deposited into the hair shaft.

Depending on the length of hair, drugs may be detected in head hair for one to three months (head hair grows approximately ½ inch per month). The lab tests only 2 inches from the hair root. Body hair (chest, arm, leg, underarm or pubic hair) grows at a slower rate and may detect up to 6 months of drug use.

Hair testing is available for 5 to 10 panel drug screens and alcohol testing (ETG).

Fingernail Testing in Columbia, SC

Fingernails, like hair, are nourished by the bloodstream. Chemical metabolites consumed by the donor are deposited in the fingernail. Fingernail testing detects drugs used within the past 6 months. Fingernail testing is available for 5 to 10 panel drug screens and alcohol (ETG) testing.

Accurate and reliable drug testing solutions are very important and our fingernail testing services in Columbia, SC, provide a solution to detecting substance use over an extended period. By analyzing the chemical compounds present in the fingernails, we can identify drug metabolites that have been incorporated into the nail as it grew.

Fingernail testing offers several advantages, including a longer detection window compared to traditional urine or blood tests. This extended timeframe allows for the identification of substance use patterns that may have been missed by other testing methods. Additionally, fingernail samples are less susceptible to tampering or adulteration, ensuring the integrity of the results.
