Kubacki commented, "We are pleased to have received this patent, which is fundamental to all hair analysis drug testing and enhances our ability to identify more drug users.  Continued investment in the development of the science is critical to Psychemedics and we remain the only company to obtain patents for getting the drugs out of the hair --- a very critical first step in the detection process.  This new patent covers the breakdown of the hair structure to release the drugs without destroying them --- removing virtually 100% of the drugs from the hair.  This patent is fundamental to hair analysis drug testing because if you cannot get all the drugs out of the hair, you cannot accurately measure them; and if you cannot accurately measure the drugs, you cannot identify all the drug users.  This is now our second fundamental patent focused on removing drugs from the hair, following our init
