ETG Urine Alcohol Testing Laboratory Service Screening & Confirmation

Detects alcohol intake up to 80 hours after consumption

Product Description:

  • Urine based laboratory test that detects the metabolites of alcohol (EtG/EtS) for up to 80 hours after consumption
  • Ideal for zero tolerance treatment programs and abstinence enforcement
  • EtG/EtS tests may be run conveniently with other RTL drug screens
  • Lab results in 48 to 72 hours

Alcohol is the most commonly abused substance which the human body processes at a rate of (approximately) 1 drink per hour.   When alcohol is absorbed by the body, it metabolizes and creates ethyl glucuronide which is detectable for up to 80 hours after consumption, regardless of the individuals’ prior drinking history.
Using our EfG/EtS urine alcohol testing laboratory service will increase the accuracy and detection time greatly and is a great alternative to the alcohol urine test.


NOTE:  This test is inadmissible in a court of law

Additional Information

  • Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) is a minor, non-oxidative metabolite of alcohol (ethyl alcohol or ethanol) EtG is used as a marker or surrogate for ethanol in the body because of its much longer half-life compared to ethanol itself. EtG in urine can therefore indicate recent consumption of alcohol long after the ethanol itself can no longer be measured or detected
  • EtG was first described in the early 1950s, but it wasn’t until 2001 that it was identified as an alcohol marker by two doctors, Dr. Gregory Skipper (USA) and Dr. Friedrich Wurst (Switzerland) when they did a study of alcoholics in a psychiatric facility in Germany. Their findings showed how EtG in urine, in comparison with ethanol, was a more sensitive and reliable indicator of both drinking and abstinence.
