80 Hour Alcohol Test
- EtG / EtS - Ethyl Glucuronide
Ethyl Sulfate Alcohol Drug Test
EtG/EtS is a laboratory
based urine test that will detect the presence of alcohol up to 80 hours after
consumption. This is sometimes referred to as “The 80 Hour Alcohol Test” and
tests for Ethyl Glucuronide and Ethyl Sulfate.
Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) and
Ethyl Sulfate (EtS) are metabolites produced by the body only after the
consumption of alcohol has been consumed. EtG and EtS are excreted from the body
in various ways. Our laboratory is one of only a few laboratories in the
country that has the ability to identify and quantify these two metabolites.
EtG / EtS -
Ethyl Glucuronide Ethyl Sulfate Alcohol Test
EtG and EtS testing
will allow you to quantify alcohol consumption up to 80 hours
This is a LCMSMS Lab Test (a.k.a. LC-MS-MS
or LCMS, LC-MS) for professional laboratory
testing of human urine for the presence of metabolized alcohol.

RESEARCH QUALITY LABORATORY
In the United States, alcohol abuse has reached
epidemic proportions. The overall risks to physical and mental health can be
devastating. More severe are the tens of thousands of fatalities annually which
are attributed directly to alcohol intoxication. The costs associated with
enforcing laws, prison systems, governmental programs and non-profit funding is
Until recently, testing methods for alcohol
consumption have remained unchanged and unreliable. Urine ethanol has it’s flaws
such as false positive results. The window of detection for breath alcohol
testing is small and always had to be confirmed by laboratory blood testing
which may not occur for many hours after suspected consumption.
Our Laboratory has changed the face of alcohol
testing industry. We have the capability of measuring consumption up to 80 hours
afterward. Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) and Ethyl Sulfate (EtS) are metabolites
produced by the body only after alcohol has been consumed. EtG and EtS are
excreted from the body in various ways and our Laboratory is one of the few
laboratories in the country able to identify and quantify these two metabolites.
The New Front Runner: EtG & EtS
• EtG and EtS are easily quantifiable with
Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry not GC/MS and proper measurement of both
metabolites can differentiate consumption vs. environmental exposure
• EtG/EtS confirmation is the perfect testing
method for ‘Zero Tolerance’ situations and an effective and noninvasive tool for
voluntary treatment facilities and school systems
• EtG/EtS can not be masked by
illnesses i.e. urinary tract infections, and false positive results from
diabetes are eliminated.
The Most Advanced Technology Available
Our Laboratory has the most accurate technology
available for the drug and alcohol testing community. Liquid Chromatography Mass
Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) is research quality laboratory equipment, and can
accurately quantify substances well below cutoff levels. This technology
surpasses Gas Spectrometry, which in the past had been labeled the ‘gold
standard’. Western Slope Laboratory currently owns and operates 4 LC/MS/MS and
we are constantly investing in our technology.
Collection Process & Shipment
The urine collection device developed by our
Laboratory is as innovative as the testing process. An absorbent material
encased in a sealable tube. The design provides ample volume of specimen for the
lab and is less bulky than urine transport cups. Our collection device minimizes
accidental spills or specimens destroyed in transport . Because our Laboratory’s
collection devices are compact and lightweight, this reduces transportation
