What is the purpose of an Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) test?

When someone consumes alcohol (ethanol), the body metabolizes it at the rate of approximately one drink per 90 minutes. However, once the alcohol is gone, a side product of the body’s metabolization, known as ethyl glucorinide, remains. This metabolite stays in the urine for about 3 days after the consumption of alcohol.

Who should order this test and why?

EtG tests should be ordered to check if someone has had any alcohol at all. Since these tests look back 3 days, it is appropriate in certain situations, for example: when an alcohol abusing parent has custody of children for the weekend, or when a recovering alcoholic has returned from rehab and needs to be tested on an ongoing basis.

How does scheduling work?

Once the test is booked and paid for, either online or over the phone, you’ll receive a registration code that can be used at the nearest clinic to the city, state and/or ZIP code you choose. The person being tested can then walk-in to the clinic with their photo ID and the registration code.

When and how will I get my results?

Results are available in one to two business day for negative screens. We will send you your results, signed by our physician, via email. (If the screen is not negative, we will subject the specimen to a confirmation test. This can take up to five business days). All results are reviewed by a Medical Review Officer – a physician.  The doctor will call you to discuss your test – before releasing the results – if it is not negative. This is your opportunity to explain any prescription medications you might be taking.
