Alcohol (EtG) Urine Test Kit
$7.70 incl. GST
The APAC Security Australia Alcohol (EtG) Urine Test Kit is used to screen for ethanol in urine. As opposed to a breath test, which measures ethanol during impairment, the EtG test has a longer detection window, typically 1-4 days – dependant on the amount of alcohol that is consumed.
The APAC Security & Diagnostic Alcohol (EtG) Urine Test Kit is used to detect the presence of Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) in urine. EtG is a metabolite of ethanol, which is formed in the body usually as a result of drinking alcohol. EtG is used as a marker in urine to test for ethanol use.
Breath testing and other traditional laboratory practices typically measure the amount of alcohol present in the body. Depending on the amount of alcohol that has been consumed, this method usually reveals alcohol ingestion within the past few hours. The presence of EtG in the urine, on the other hand, demonstrates that ethyl alcohol was ingested within the past three or four days, or roughly 80 hours after the ethyl alcohol has been metabolized by the body. As a result, it can be determined that a urine alcohol test such as the APAC Security Australia Alcohol (EtG) Urine Test Kit is more accurate than the traditional laboratory test which simply measures the short period existence of ethyl alcohol in the urine.
EtG urine screening is frequently used to monitor alcohol abstinence in situations where alcohol consumption is prohibited, such as Alcohol Rehabilitation Clinics, Correctional Facilities, the Military, the Construction Industry, or any other situation where abstinence policies are in place.
The APAC Security Australia Alcohol (EtG) Urine Test Kit utilises a dip cassette to carry out the test; Simply remove the cap that covers the strip and insert it into the specimen jar containing the urine you want to test.
