Customer Question

I took a hair drug test recently. I tested "positive" for cocaine. This is troubling because I have never touched the stuff (intentionally) in my life. My result showed zero benzoylecnine (BE), zero Norocane (NCOC), zero Cocaethylene (CE), and less that 400 pgs of Cocaine (Coc). Do these results suggest external exposure?
Thank you,
Brian

What are the lab value cutoffs for a positive result in the testing lab?

Why was the hair test done?

Were the results confirmed with MS/GC evaluation?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
