Fingernail Drug Testing

Fingernail Drug Test: Results in 5-7 Business Days

Fingernails are four times thicker than the typical strand of hair and often capture more of a substance than hair can. Biomarkers become locked in keratin fibers along the entire length of the nail, and can be detected up to 3-6 months after drug or alcohol abuse. Due to the relatively slow speed at which fingernails and toenails grow, it’s possible to detect these traces for months afterward. This makes nail drug testing an ideal option for those wishing to screen for drug usage at any point in the past eight or so months.
