‘HairConfirm' Is First Drug Test of Its Kind to Report Low/Medium/High Usage; Now Available at Local Discount Drug Marts
Date:6/10/2009

A new home-based hair follicle drug test kit called HairConfirm™ can detect drug use as well as usage frequency for up to 90 days, equipping parents with a valuable new tool for combating substance abuse. The kit is now available at a local Discount Drug Mart Store.

San Diego, CA (Vocus) June 10, 2009 -- A new home-based hair follicle drug test kit called HairConfirm™ can detect drug use as well as usage frequency for up to 90 days, equipping parents with a valuable new tool for combating substance abuse. The kit is now available at a local Discount Drug Mart Store.

Developed by Biotech Company Confirm BioSciences, the test overcomes the limitations of two- or three-day saliva or urine screenings that enable users to escape detection by avoiding drug use for a short period. It is also the first home hair test to report the amount of each chemical detected as well as whether the results indicate low, medium or high usage.

“I can tell you first hand how easy it is for families to dismiss the visible signs of drug abuse in a loved one,” said Leigh Lehmann, a HairConfirm customer who purchased the kit for a family member. “But numbers don’t lie, and the detailed information provided by this product will help bring people together to deal with it. I wish I had done this years ago!”

HairConfirm is the first of its kind, and tests for 7 different types of illegal drugs including Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy and Heroin. The product measures the molecules embedded inside the hair shaft, eliminating external contamination as a source of a positive result. Since hair growth is fed by the bloodstream, the ingestion of drugs of abuse is revealed by analyzing a lock of hair. HairConfirm test results cannot be altered with shampoos, bleaches or other external chemicals.
