Our Laboratory checks the hair and if it has been adulterated or chemically treated to the extent the drug test results could be compromised then the test is stopped. The results will be reported as Fatal Invalid with no result.

No, we eliminate external contamination and passive smoking from the results ensuring your results are indicative of what you have ingested during the detection period.

Highly Sensitive Environments

Where staff are employed in High Risk or Highly Sensitive environments such as Police, Military, Aneasthetists, Ambulance officers, Fire Fighters, Elite Athletes etc, a clear mind is essential. Hair drug and alcohol testing is commonly used in these environments because the tests are virtually impossible to defeat, will identify patterns of drug and alcohol use and are used to identify people at risk BEFORE they are involved in an accident or incident. 

Brassets Group operate a High Security confidential program where each employee's name and details are not provided to the Laboratory or on record. Where confidentiality is essential our proven high security process assigns a unique number to each person that is tested. Only the Employer can identify who provided a Positive Drug Test result relates to.
