An EtG hair alcohol test uses a person’s hair to detect any alcohol use over the last few months, but how does it work? When you drink alcohol, your body absorbs it and sets to work metabolizing it, or breaking it down into any useful parts. The byproducts of metabolism are called metabolites and different substances produce different types of metabolites. EtG is a metabolite that is formed when alcohol is metabolized, and it can be found in trace amounts in the hair of someone who has recently used alcohol. An EtG test examines a person’s hair for this metabolite. If it is present, the person has used alcohol within the last three months or so.
Our drug and alcohol testing experts at Fastest Labs conduct hair alcohol testing, as well as other types of alcohol and drug testing services, with speed, accuracy, and professionalism. When you arrive at our hair alcohol testing facility, we'll take hair samples, and immediately begin following our EtG hair alcohol testing protocols, which meet or exceed all best practices and industry standards. That means with hair alcohol testing from Fastest Labs, you know you'll be getting the most accurate, legally admissible, certified hair alcohol testing results on the market.
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.
While an EtG hair alcohol test doesn’t provide instant results of a current state of intoxication like a breath alcohol test, but it does provide a fast record of months of potential alcohol use. At Fastest Labs, our streamlined testing procedures allow us to return results in 1-3 days. We know that the results of an alcohol test can make a big difference to the parties involved, so we do everything we can to make sure you get accurate results, as fast as possible.
Because your hair can hold alcohol metabolites for months at a time, an EtG hair test is one of the very best ways to evaluate long-term alcohol use. Unless the person has bleached, dyed, or treated their hair with chlorine (which can eliminate EtG), any drinking over the last three months will show up in an EtG alcohol test. That makes it a great option for pre-employment screenings, court-admissible evidence, and other contexts in which a long-term pattern of use is significant.
Different alcohol testing methods carry with them different levels of sample security. A hair sample is one of the most difficult to tamper with, because the chain of custody is direct and controlled. Our profession alcohol testers will obtain the hair sample directly and enter it into our secure sample control and analysis system. You can be sure that your hair alcohol testing results will not have been compromised in any way.
Along with our industry-leading alcohol hair analysis services, we offer a full array of drug, alcohol, and DNA testing services. Each method of alcohol testing comes with its own unique benefits, as well as varying degrees of detection times and accuracy. Some of our most popular testing methods include the following:
