Psychemedics Corporation Receives New, Additional FDA Clearances for Hair Analysis Drug Testing
Date:6/12/2012

ACTON, Mass., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Psychemedics Corporation (NASDAQ: PMD), hair testing pioneer and global leader for twenty-five years, announced that after a rigorous and thorough review, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the company 510(k) clearances for five new, additional assays to test for the detection of cocaine, opiates, PCP, methamphetamine and marijuana using enzyme immunoassay (EIA) analysis of head and body hair.

Raymond C. Kubacki, Chairman and CEO stated, "Superior detection is the key to providing the greatest return on investment for our customers from their drug screening p
