DrugCheck® Rapid EtG™

Instant test for ethyl glucuronide

DC-Rapid-ETG_logo_2c

Express Diagnostics is excited to offer the first onsite, lateral flow test for ethyl glucuronide (EtG) – a unique biomarker of alcohol use – optimized for abstinence monitoring. EtG testing previously has been available only through laboratories, at significant cost and several days in transit and processing. The DrugCheck® Rapid EtG (Patent Pending) urine test delivers accurate, reliable results in as little as one minute, at a fraction of the cost of lab-based EtG tests.

 

The 500 ng/mL cutoff of the DrugCheck Rapid EtG dip test is widely considered to be the optimal cutoff for ethyl glucuronide testing for abstinence monitoring. Positive results at the 500 ng/mL threshold for Rapid EtG are consistent with recent ingestion of alcohol – up to approximately 48 hours prior to specimen collection. Studies also indicate that positive results at this cutoff are not associated with incidental alcohol exposure, such as from mouthwash or hand sanitizer.
