Suwanee, Georgia – Job applicants in today’s market should be concerned with more than pre-employment criminal reports
. Companies are now performing more drug tests on applicants as the technology evolves into mobile drug testing and hair testing which is much more accurate and delivers better results even months after an applicant stops using drugs.
Hair drug testing
is not only more accurate it is also easier to perform since the applicant has to submit only a hair sample instead of urine. Hair testing is able to detect each illegal substance that an applicant has used in the last few months leading up the test. It is almost impossible to trick a hair drug test into coming back negative which is why more and more employers are now choosing the method over urine and blood samples.
Testing an applicant’s hair instead of urine has actually become a standard method of drug testing
in the United States. Since hair growth is stimulated by the blood in the system, the metabolized drug enters the hair follicle and grows in the hair cortex. This means that the hair drug test cannot be fooled by shampoos and conditioners that can only cover the hair follicle on the exterior. The drugs are found deep inside the hair.
Recent surveys and studies indicate that hair drug testing is a now major player in the field of testing job applicants for illegal drugs. Each half inch of hair that is submitted for drug testing represents thirty days of the applicants life, and the submission of 1.5 inches of hair will show a 90 day drug usage history.
