Alcohol EtG Hair Follicle Test

Ethyl Glucuronide


Specimen Type: Hair

Description:

Alcohol EtG Hair Follicle Test

The Alcohol EtG Hair Follicle test looks for Ethyl Glucuronide, a metabolite of alcohol. Hair drug testing can typically detect alcohol use up to 90 days in the past.  It may take 7-10 days for consumption to be detectable in hair.  This test provides an initial screening with confirmatory testing on any positive results at no additional cost.  A positive confirmatory test will provide numerical results.

A Urine Alcohol EtG test is also available for customers who do not require the longer detection period provided by hair testing.

Turnaround time is typically up to 7 business days. Additional time may be needed for confirmatory testing.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

Hair must be at least 1.5-2 inches in length. Hair will be collected from the top of the head only. The lab will be required to take a sample of at least 200 strands.

Please note that not all lab locations are able to perform the collections for hair drug testing.  When placing a testing order online you will only be able to select from lab locations that are able to perform this type of testing.
