Omega Laboratories Applauds the Adoption of Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) by Major Hair Testing Laboratories
Date:6/13/2012

MOGADORE, Ohio, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Omega Laboratories, Inc. recognizes and applauds yesterday's announcement that the remaining laboratory of those accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) for forensic hair drug testing has decided to utilize Enzyme Immunoassay technology. This announcement comes after a decade of disagreement and confusion regarding differing methodologies and proprietary techniques. This change could signal that the hair testing industry has finally come to a consensus on the superiority of Enzyme Immunoassay technology as a screening method for drugs of abuse.

This announcement represents a unity of methodology within the hair testing industry, as all three major workplace hair testing laboratories now use EIA as their screening method of choice. Omega anticipates that this harmonization on screening methodologies will aid in the acceptance of hair testing by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and their Drug Testing Advisory Board (DTAB).

Omega Laboratories has chosen to use Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) technology since its inception in 2000, citing superior accuracy, reliability, and low impact upon the environment. Omega's use of EIA for 12 years has contributed to its position as a leader in the hair testing industry, allowing Omega to be an active and successful participant in worldwide proficiency testing programs. In addition, it has aided Omega in securing prestigious international accreditations and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearances for the company's screening assays.

Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) is a quick and cost effective biochemistry assay used to identify the presence of substances within specimens. When used for drugs of abuse screening, this technology allows laboratories to efficiently and accurately detect drugs of abuse in hair specimens, which can then be confirmed through GC/MS and LC/MS technology.
