ETG urine alcohol test strip kits
• ETG ethyl Glucuronide is a metabolite of alcohol which is formed by the body following comsumption of ethanol.
• ETG is detectable in urine for up to 3 days, long after ethanol has been cleared.
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.
• ETG urine test kits is the best (comparison to saliva) can be used to detect alcohol consumption for up to 3 days ( 72 hours ) after consumption of alcohol.
• Sometimes referred to as 80 hour alcohol test
• Detection Limit: 0.02% to 0.30% for approximate relative blood alcohol level
• Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette will react with methyl, ethyl and allyl alcohols
• Quick and easy to use
• 100% accuracy
• Certified quality : CE, GMP, ISO product line.

When should I do the test?
This test can be carried out at any time. To perform the test:
- Remove the cassette from sealed pouch and use it within 1 hour. Observe the reactive pad on central window of the cassette. If the reaction pad has a blue color before applying urine sample, do no use.
- Place the cassette on a clean and level surface. Hold the dropper vertically and transfer 3 full drops of urine to the specimen well of the cassette, and then start the timer. Avoid trapping air bubbles in the specimen well.
- Read the results in 3-5 minutes. Compare the color of the reaction pad and standard color card to determine the relative blood alcohol concentration.
To read the results of your test you will need to do the following.
Interpretation of Results
Positive: The Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette will produce a color change in the presence of urine alcohol. The color will range from light blue color at 0.02% relative blood alcohol concentration to a dark blue color near 0.03% relative blood alcohol concentration.
Note: The Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette is very sensitive to the presence of alcohol. A blue color that is lighter than 0.02% color pad should be interpreted as being positive to the presence of alcohol in urine but less than 0.02% relative blood alcohol.
Negative: When Urine Alcohol Rapid Test Cassette shows no color change this should be interpreted as a negative result indicating that alcohol has not been detected.
Invalid: If the color pad has a blue color before applying urine sample, do not use the test.
Note: A result where the outer edges of the color pad produces a slight color but the majority of the pad remains colorless the test should be repeated to ensure complete saturation of the pad with urine. The test is not reusable.
Conclusion: Clearly, the detection window for EtG in urine is significantly longer than it is with oral fluid. Therefore, Alcohol Urine Test is better.
