The EtG test is a biomarker test that detects the presence of ethyl glucuronide (a metabolite in the body produced by exposure to alcohol) in urine samples. It is used to monitor alcohol consumption in individuals who are prohibited from drinking alcohol in the workplace or by the justice system. The presence of EtG in urine indicates that alcohol was ingested within the previous 72 hours.

How Accurate and Reliable is the EtG Test?

EtG is a direct metabolite of alcohol, and their detection in urine is highly specific, similar to testing for other drugs. Additionally, MedDirect’s laboratory utilizes the most sophisticated  equipment and technology available to screen, confirm, and quantitate EtG. This methodology provides highly accurate results.

A key benefit of using the EtG test is the detection of recent usage more accurately and for a longer period of time than standard testing.
