New hair drug testing service from Cellmark

I have received the following from Cellmark:

New from Cellmark, the UK’s first, foremost and most recommended DNA testing company, comes a simple yet comprehensive drug and alcohol testing service.

Cellmark’s approach is to offer a cost effective approach for identifying your clients’ drug and alcohol usage. Gone is the laborious task of individually selecting which of the many possible drugs should be tested. Instead we have made it simple by introducing two main drug panels: A for the most common drugs of abuse; B for some less frequently tested drugs. With an option to add in our enhanced Cannabis test, you could say that it’s as easy as A-B-C...

Panel A includes the following common ‘drugs of abuse’:
  • Amphetamine and Methamphetamines - including the ‘Ecstasy’ drug MDMA.
  • Opiates - including markers of Heroin use.
  • Cocaine – including markers to indicate the use of ‘Crack’ Cocaine and the concurrent use of Cocaine and alcohol.
  • Methadone
  • Benzodiazepines

Panel B includes LSD, Ketamine and Phencyclidine (PCP).

Whilst Cannabis is the most commonly used drug of abuse it is especially difficult to detect accurately. We have therefore developed a very specific test for Cannabis and its metabolites and this test can be selected in conjunction with either of our panels. We do not offer it as a stand alone test

Our laboratory is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to the International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005 to test for a wide and expanding range of drugs in hair.
