Can I send in hair from a hair brush for unknown hair substance testing?

Unknown substance testing is conducted using a head or body hair follicle specimen collected at one of our 20,000+ certified collection facilities. Testing is unable to be performed using a hair follicle specimen taken from an individual's hair brush as the testing laboratory is unable to identify which ends of the hair strands are the roots. Additionally, the thickness of a hair specimen should be equivalent to that of a sharpie marker to ensure accurate and conclusive testing. For more information, contact US Drug Test Centers today!

White Powder Testing

A white powder can indicate many different types of drugs, both illegal and over-the-counter, in addition to supplements. White powdered drugs are often an indication of:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Bath salts
  • Methamphetamine
  • Fentanyl
  • Ketamine
  • Ecstasy

Methamphetamine is particularly dangerous. It appears as fine, transparent, shiny crystals and is commonly called Ecstasy, Crystal Meth, Ice, Crank, Glass, and Tina. Meth users experience euphoria, increased alertness, excessive talking, feeling of well-being, and decreased appetite. Smoked or injected, methamphetamine produces an intensely euphoric “rush.”

Cocaine is a shiny crystalline powder resembling snow, often called Coke, Coca, Coco, Snow, Powder, Charlie, Dust, or Snowflake. Common effects of cocaine use are euphoria, stimulation, insomnia, and loss of appetite.

Our lab has accreditations from the College of American Pathologists (CAP), along with Federal and State Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agencies.
