This strip is made for the detection in human urine of alcohol use or abuse.

It allows the detection of ethyl glucuronide, or "EtG".
EtG is the main biomarker when it comes to highlight alcohol consumption, as this is a major metabolite of the ethanol contained in alcoholic beverages.

The urine test will be particularly useful in situations where alcohol consumption is absolutely prohibited, as in a medically supervised withdrawal, or in some professional environments that require total abstinence for safety reasons (eg in transport, or petrochemical fields).

This test is a qualitative assay (type "NO / YES"), and thus delivers a "NEGATIVE" or "POSITIVE" result.


Technical data

Cut-off : 500 ng/ml
This alcohol consumption test will be positive if the patient's sample contains at least 500 nanograms of ethyl glucuronide (EtG) per milliliter of urine, or negative if the sample contains less or not at all.

Detection time of EtG in urine : 2-3 days after the last alcohol intake.

This test is made to highlight a recent alcohol consumption, but cannot indicate in any case a state of alcoholic intoxication (it doesn't indicate if the patient is drunk or not). Therefore, it should never be used for road safety or occupational safety.


Available test formats


The test is immersed directly into the urine sample, which prevents any liquid handling.
