Cansford Laboratories continues to act as trusted testing partner to the UK public sector – offering a diverse range of drug and alcohol testing services at scale.

As part of our ISO 17025-certified testing process, our partners benefit from:

Reduced risk:

Access to our wide range of point-of-care and laboratory test services helps protect organisations from employing individuals who might later pose a security risk. Our portfolio includes hair, blood, nail and oral fluid (saliva) tests, for detecting drug and alcohol use in-the-moment, historically and across long periods.

Faster testing:

We offer the UK’s fastest drug and alcohol testing service, with 99% of results delivered within 3 days of receipt. New employees can be on-boarded more quickly; existing employees spend less time on paid leave following their drug or alcohol test.

Practise and experience:

In working with government organisations of all types, we have decades of experience and understanding around the unique needs of the public sector. This includes the need for demonstrable cost-effectiveness – which we guarantee across all our test services.

Innovation for good:

Having pioneered hair testing more than 25 years ago, our team continues to invest in world-leading research on drug and alcohol testing. This insight informs our services, bringing benefit to the public sector and the public purse.
