August 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
SAN DIEGO, CALIF - Confirm BioSciences ( is pleased to announce that it has over 15 distributors for the HairConfirm™ product line throughout the US after being on the market for just 6 weeks. It’s anticipated based on current sales that the distributors combined will purchase more than 200,000 kits annually. The company is currently in discussions with some of the major pharmacy chains for retail distribution.

“Parents have been asking for a product like this for several years, many prefer a hair test to an instant urine test and like the fact that the hair test goes back several months in detecting drug use. We expect this product to be a big seller”, said Joseph Reilly of Florida Drug Screening, one of HairConfirn’s main distributors. Reilly is also Chairman of the Board of Directors of DATIA, the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association with over 1300 members.

HairConfirm™ enables parents to take a more proactive role in preventing their children’s illegal drug use. "By offering HairConfirm through our distributors, we are better able to offer the product to a wide range of individuals who need to use the test” said Zeynep Ilgaz President & CEO of Confirm BioSciences. “The feedback we have gotten from parents that have used the test has been overwhelming. It is a good feeling to know that we’re making a difference in those family’s lives. By drug testing at home, parents are not only confronting the problem but also are doing something about it. ” she continued. The HairConfirm ™ Hair Follicle Drug Test Kit is ideal for parents who want to test their teens.

HairConfirm™ is the first home hair drug test of its kind to provide accurate results and a detailed drug history report—detecting drug use for up to 90 days and identifying whether the user is a low, medium or high user. Moreover, test results are available two business days after the lab receives the sample, the fastest turnaround time in hair testing. Unlike urine and saliva testing which can be tampered with and detectable for only up to two or three days, HairConfirm™ screens for the five most popular drug classes including cocaine, marijuana, amphetamine, opiates and heroine.

“Drug testing sounded scary and invasive, but when I came across the Hair Confirm Hair Follicle Test Kit I felt immediately at ease. The days of complicated tests are over and I'm eternally grateful." said Carolyn Simmons of Montgomery , Alabama

HairConfirm ™ is sold through resellers and drug stores and available to consumers, and schools.. For more information visit and
