The EtG/Ets urine alcohol test, sometimes known as the “80 Hour Alcohol Test,” is a way of monitoring recent alcohol intoxication. But how does the urine alcohol test work? When your body processes alcohol, it creates by-products, known as metabolites. The presence of these metabolites in the body and in body fluids is clear evidence that alcohol has been ingested and processed by the body. The urine alcohol test analyzes a person’s urine, looking for two key alcohol metabolites: EtG and Ets. It takes 3-5 days for urine to eliminate these metabolites, so a urine alcohol test will return a positive result if someone has used alcohol at some point within the last 3 days and even perhaps in the last 5 days.
At Fastest Labs, we conduct all of our drug and alcohol testing services with a special focus on speed and accuracy. Our urine alcohol testing is no exception. While not as cheap and easy as our breath alcohol test, an EtG/Ets urine alcohol test is more accurate, covers a longer range of potential alcohol use, and is more legally persuasive. After we've received your sample, we'll immediately get started analyzing it so we can get you the accurate results you need as quickly as possible.
Our alcohol testing locations are certified collection labs, who can provide alcohol testing by way of a breath alcohol test, also known as a breathalyzer, saliva alcohol screening, EtG hair alcohol tests and more. We offer the most comprehensive alcohol screening services with paramount speed, accuracy, and professionalism, just like we do all of our drug and testing services
We provide alcohol screening services for both individuals as well as employers. Please contact a alcohol screening location nearest you to find out more about our alcohol testing services in your local area.
When accuracy is the highest priority, as it often is when it comes to drug and alcohol testing, there’s no better option than the EtG/Ets urine alcohol test. While limited in the scope of alcohol use it can cover, for recent use, the urine alcohol test is unparalleled in providing accurate results without false positives. That’s why the EtG/Ets test is the go-to alcohol testing option for employers, courts, and most other testing organizations.
If you want to detect recent drug use from the last 1-5 days, an EtG/Ets urine test is a great option. It may not detect immediate use, as it takes time for the alcohol to be processed and the metabolites to be found in the urine, but it will do a great job of detecting recent, non-immediate consumption. That’s why this test is frequently called the “80 Hour Alcohol Test.”
False positives are the worst possible results from an alcohol test, because of how they can unfairly interfere with someone’s life. Sadly, with some alcohol tests, there’s no way to avoid the occasional false positive. With the urine alcohol test, however, there are no false positives, because the EtG metabolite is never present when alcohol has not been recently consumed. Eliminating false positives is an important priority for many testing programs that wish to protect those they are testing and insulate themselves from potential legal headaches.
