“Hair-testing has experienced a period of flux recently
Randox’s Gary McCutcheon
Randox Testing Services global manager Gary McCutcheon said: “Providing forensic toxicology services to over half the UK police forces as well as workplace testing to a number of household brands, means we have experienced a rapid period of growth in recent years.”
The purchase included hair testing apparatus which, according to Randox, gives a more complete picture of a person’s compliance or behaviour in comparison to saliva or urine.
“Hair-testing has experienced a period of flux recently, with one of the largest firms exiting the market, and another shifting their operations,” McCutcheon added.
“Clients such as solicitors or social services & local authorities require stability, technical expertise and reliability. Randox Testing Services are not new to hair-testing and our customer support infrastructure means we are confident anyone looking for a provider will enjoy a smooth transition.”
