Hair alcohol testing measures average alcohol consumption over a period of approximately three months, indicating the level of alcohol use during that time period and providing a behavioral indication of excessive use. This test has been used effectively in courts, corporate alcohol screening programs and in monitoring medical issues and probation compliance.
This non-invasive testing procedure uses a small sample of hair that is easily collected and shipped. It measures the amount of ethyl glucuronide in the hair – a trace metabolite of ethanol and a direct alcohol biomarker.
BarnesCare’s hair alcohol testing follows the guidelines determined by the World Health Organization in association with the Society for Hair Testing for measuring consumption.
