Some Interesting Facts
About Hair Testing

Hair is one of the most versatile specimen in the analytical world of science to find out if there are any drugs, poisonous compounds, or perhaps some alcohols, or other chemical compounds.  In addition, not to overlook the advances in DNA testing to determine maternal parentage through mitochondrial DNA in hair, a blood line heritage from an Egyptian human remains over 2000 years old, and many others.

 

The hair sample has an excellent resistance to degradation in that it's almost impossible for the hair to break down by microbial degradation means, just like the bones that also possesed this remarkable quality.  Of course, the only way to get rid of it completely is to burn it.  In addition to hair's toughness and rigidity, as far as sample collection is concerned it is less invasive, and more imporntaly more hair can be recollected at a later time, if more testings are required or to repeat the hair test again.
