Fingernail alcohol testing is an excellent, non-intrusive way to obtain long-term alcohol use and dosage history.
After consumption of alcohol, the alcohol spreads throughout the drinker's body, affecting body systems and being processed by organs as it goes. As part of that process, biomarkers of alcohol consumption are deposited in nail tissue. Those biomarkers remain in the fingernail tissue for up to 90 days. That means that, within 90 days of drinking, one can analyze the drinker's nail tissue for these biomarkers, and thus determine whether or not the person has used alcohol in the last few months. That makes it one of the very best options for those looking for a long-term alcohol usage history. Fastest Labs always conducts its fingernail alcohol testing with unparalleled speed and accuracy. You'll be surprised how quick the sample collection process is and how rapidly you get your fingernail alcohol testing results.

Although the fingernail alcohol test is mostly similar to a hair alcohol test, a fingernail sets itself apart in cases where a hair is not easily obtained. If a test subject happens to be bald and doesn’t want to provide body hair, a fingernail test is a suitable alternative. The sample collector simply takes clippings from each of the subject’s ten digits, and files them to obtain a nail dust for testing. Negative results are available within 24 to 48 hours. If fingernail/toenail alcohol test is positive, it may take up to one week to receive results. Fastest Labs requests that diabetic clients have their toenail clipped by a professional podiatrist to minimize the risk of infection.
Along with hair alcohol testing, which covers a similar time period, fingernail alcohol testing covers the largest period of time of any common tests. Since alcohol biomarkers persist in nail and hair tissue for up to 90 days, those tests can provide an alcohol dosage history for the last three months. That makes it a great option for regularly scheduled employee screenings, as the length of the testing range makes manipulation around the testing schedule more difficult. In addition, nail testing provides a more complete picture of a testee's alcohol history for pre-employment screenings.
While both nail and hair alcohol tests cover a similarly long range of time, a hair sample is usually more simply acquired than nail tissue. For that reason, hair alcohol testing would be the easier option. However, there is an inherent gender bias within hair testing, as many of the cosmetic treatments more commonly used by women can render hair tissue ineffective as an alcohol testing sample. In addition, certain health situations make it more difficult for some people to provide a hair sample. For those reasons, large scale testing programs are almost always better served by using fingernail and toenail alcohol testing.

While not ideal for random or “for-cause” testing, because it takes up to a week for alcohol indicators to be found in a user’s fingernail tissue, fingernail testing is ideal for situations in which a long-term pattern of alcohol use is sought. That makes fingernail testing one of the best methods for pre-employment screenings, pre-employment screenings, random alcohol testing programs, or scheduled screenings.
