Instant EtG Screen (Urine)

Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG), is a minor metabolite of ethanol (ethyl alcohol) and is considered a direct biomarker of recent ethanol consumption. EtG can be detected in urine for up to 80 hours after last consumption of an alcoholic beverage.  This test is considered a screening tool only.  Positive results are considered presumptive, and should not be interpreted as definitive evidence of ethanol use without additional laboratory-based confirmation testing.  Laboratory confirmation of presumptively positive instant drug test results is available if necessary.  Additional charges for laboratory confirmations may apply.

Test Details

Ethyl Glucuronide (ETG), the direct biomarker of ethyl alcohol (ethanol), is formed in the body after consuming alcohol.  ETG is formed in the system even in small amounts of alcohol and can be detected as soon as 2 hours after consumption and up to 80 hours afterwards.  This instant urine ETG dip screen will produce results within minutes. The instant ETG urine screen is a forensic use product ideal for court or law enforcement (i.e. prisons, correctional facilities), and other entities that have implemented a zero-tolerance and abstinence policy.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ETG AND ETOH (Urine)?

Both ETG (Ethyl Glucuronide) and ETOH (ethanol) are used to detect the presence of alcohol.  However, ETOH has a relatively short window of detection compared to ETG.  ETG is the direct biomarker of ETOH and is only produced when alcohol is in the bloodstream.  The more alcohol a person consumes, the greater amount of ETG biomarkers present in body fluids, even hair.  ETG also has a longer window of detection than ETOH.

WHAT IS THE WINDOW OF DETECTION FOR INSTANT ETG URINE?

Like many drug tests, different variables may affect the window of detection.  However, the instant urine ETG can detect from 2 hours after consumption and up to 80 hours after consumption.

SHOULD I GET A CONFIRMATION TEST IF THERE IS A POSITIVE RESULT?

ETG is a highly useful test in detecting recent alcohol consumption.  However, to avoid any false positives that may occur with drug screens, it is recommended that any positive result is followed up with a confirmatory test from a certified laboratory.

If I have questions about my tests results who should I contact?

We recommend you share your results with your physician.

WHAT IF MY RAPID DRUG SCREEN IS PRESUMPTIVELY POSITIVE FOR A DRUG CLASS?

If necessary, specimens that are presumptively positive on a rapid drug screen can be sent to a toxicology laboratory for confirmation of the positive drug class(es).  Note that an additional charge for each individual confirmation test that is requested will apply.  Contact your local Any Lab Test Now location for the additional cost.
