Things You Should Know

Five Reasons Psychemedics Hair Testing Is Selected By More Trucking Firms

All Hair Testing Is NOT The Same

It is all about our numbers being better than other hair testing labs.

• Unrivaled detection rate that is 2-3X the others.

• 60% less hair required.  Fewest retests due to insufficient quantity.

• The only lab with FDA 510k clearance for every drug screen.

• Fastest turnaround time.  The speed you need.

For the numbers that matter most, Psychemedics is just better.

We Make Cheating The Test A Thing Of The Past

Urine is ideal when you want to identify usage in the past day or two or meet DOT mandates. But to identify habitual users nothing is better than Psychemedics.

Our detection rate is unrivaled by any drug test.

We capture 90 days of usage patterns, enabling you to screen for habitual users. That plus an observed collection thwarts short-term abstinence or sample doctoring as an evasion tactic.

All the while identifying up to 10X more users.

Delivers The Lowest Cost-Per-User Identified

If the objective is to identify drug users, the key indicator is a positive test result. And the first building block to R.O.I. is the cost for each of those positives. Divide your total testing cost by the number of users you identify.

And then you know.  Detection rate is everything.  And ours is unrivaled.

Our cost-per-positive result beats every drug test by 2-10X.

Every one.
