Product Information

These are high quality EtG test strips for urine testing to detect alcohol consumption.

NB: EtG (ethyl glucuronide) is a test for a breakdown product of alcohol and not for alcohol itself.

Sensitivity:

EtG Cut-off 500 ng/ml

Intended use:

  • Home or workplace testing 
  • Screening for alcohol use
  • Regular testing to confirm or reinforce alcohol abstinence 

Detection time:

EtG can be detected in urine for an average of 80 hours (3.3 days), and up to 5 days after alcohol consumption.

The detection time can be affected by:

  • amount of alcohol taken
  • body weight
  • use of medication and drugs
  • health problems

What does Cut-off mean?

The cut-off is the minimum level of EtG that can be detected by the test. For example, a cut-off of 500 ng/mL means that EtG can be detected at concentrations at or above 500 ng/mL but not below this number. 

Sensitivity:

Up to 97%

 

Accuracy

How accurate is the test?

This test is highly sensitive and up to 99% accurate.


It is CE and FDA certified.


This is a lateral flow, one-step immunoassay for the qualitative detection of specific drugs and their metabolites in human urine. 


This test can be used as a quick and convenient screening procedure. All positive tests should be considered as preliminary positive as there is a small chance of a result being a false positive. All preliminary positive results should be confirmed by a laboratory using GC-MS or LC-MS specialised testing as advised by the European Workplace Drug Testing Society guidelines

Instructions for use
  1. Ask test subject to pass urine into a container

  2. Dip the test strip into the urine making sure that the urine does not come above the 'MAX' line

  3. Wait 5 minutes.

  4. Read the test

a) The top red strip labelled 'C' is the Control strip and should always be present. If this is missing the test is invalid and should be repeated with a new drug test strip.
b) The bottom red strip labelled 'T' is the Test strip If it is present, even faintly, then the test is negative.
c) A Preliminary Positive result is indicated by a red 'C' strip and completely absent 'T' strip. This result should be confirmed by specialised testing for that particular substance by GC-MS or LC-MS methods.
