Why Choose 5Strands
NO PRICKS, NO PRODS, NO PAIN!Collecting a hair sample is easy and non-invasive. We require only 10-15 strands of hair.
FASTER RESULTSHair testing is completed quickly and efficiently with results reported within 5-7 days after the sample arrives at the lab. Other types of testing may take up to several weeks.
AFFORDABLE COSTWe provide a way to test more items cost-effectively, allowing us to pass the savings along to the customer.
HAIR TESTING IS STABLEOur testing is not affected by factors such as recent meals, stress, medications, dye, etc. Hair testing eliminates storage, transportation and usability constraints that are associated with other types of tissue samples.
