This 5 panel hair + Alcohol test provides testing for common drugs of abuse.  Most people requesting a Hair Follicle Drug Test request a detection window for up to 90 days, depending upon the length of hair collected.  A small sample of hair will be collected from several inconspicuous spots on your head.  As a substitute, body hair can be used; however, the detection window varies for body hair.

 

The 5 panel hair and alcohol test is a type of drug test that looks for the presence of five specific substances in a person’s hair sample. These substances are commonly abused drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, and opiates. The test is used to determine if an individual has recently used these drugs.

 

On the other hand, a 5 panel fingernail drug test is a type of drug test that looks for the presence of the same five drugs in a person’s fingernails. This test is less commonly used than the hair test, but it can provide a longer window of detection for drug use.

 

One key difference between the two tests is the sample that is collected. For the hair test, a small sample of hair is taken from the back of the head, while for the fingernail test, a small sample of fingernail clippings is collected.

 

Another difference is the length of time that the test can detect drug use. A hair test can detect drug use for a longer period of time, up to 90 days, while a fingernail test can only detect drug use for the past several weeks.

 

In terms of accuracy, both tests are considered reliable for detecting drug use, but the fingernail test may be slightly more sensitive. However, because the fingernail test is less commonly used, there is less research available on its accuracy compared to the hair test.

 

Overall, both the 5 panel hair and alcohol test and the 5 panel fingernail drug test are useful tools for detecting drug use, but they have some key differences in the sample that is collected and the length of time they can detect drug use.
