Formed in 1992 NIVHA has ISO 9001:2008 certification for Drug & Alcohol Collection and Testing.
We are based at Catalyst (formally the Northern Ireland Science Park) in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, at the heart of Innovation in Northern Ireland. NIVHA is ideally placed to cater for the Drug testing needs of industry, legal & social services.
To date we have processed many thousands of legal cases and have many workplace testing customers in Northern Ireland, England, Scotland, Republic of Ireland and also further afield - Holland, USA, Canada and the Middle East.
NIVHA offers a comprehensive range of products to assist the courts, judges or healthcare professionals involved in Safegaurding Children. These include Hair or Urine collections for alcohol (and alcohol markers) and a wide range of drugs. Analysis is carried out by fully Accredited Laboratories and case reporting by qualified scientific and medical professionals.
NIVHA also provides a full range of workplace drug and alcohol solutions for pre-employment, unannounced or for-cause testing using urine, oral fluid, breath or hair. We are also acutely aware that companies with only a few employees need to benefit from modern testing solutions as well as large companies with hundreds of employees. Indeed, the impact on the productivity of a small organisation can be significantly affected by even one employee who is affected by drugs and alcohol.
NIVHA can also help with DNA testing for legal/court use, immigration and home paternity testing.
At NIVHA we are authorised suppliers of Dräger equipment and subsequent training in their use. The equipment ranges from simple combination Drug and Alcohol swabs to legally defensible Breath Testers and On-Site Analytical Drug testing equipment.
