5-Panel Drug Test

Our Unrivaled Detection Makes This Standard Test A More Effective Deterrent.

We invented hair testing.

We know the process better than anyone.

The 5-Panel Drug Test is the cornerstone for many drug detection programs. Start here and add other screens or tests as needed.

Psychemedics brings our unrivaled detection to the standard 5-Panel Drug Test.  The certainty of detection we deliver is a powerful deterrent, and our 90-day window of detection spots habitual users who pose the highest risk to your organization.

All the incentive you need is in the National Institutes of Health data.


Our 5-Panel Drug Test may be extended with FDA 510(k)-cleared screens for benzodiazepines, fentanyl, and adderall, as well as alcohol, nicotine, and synthetic cannabinoids.

No one else can make that claim.     No one.

The certainty of Detection is what we bring. Deterrence is what you get.
