An introduction to hair alcohol testing
Similar to hair drug analysis, we can establish levels of alcohol consumption over periods of time, dependent on the length of the hair. Typically a 3cm sample of hair will show a history of the past three months.
The key ‘Markers’ of alcohol consumption are ethylglucuronide (ETG), and phosphatidylethanol or fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEE). Detection of ethylglucuronide is always associated with alcohol consumption.
Screen4 Hair Alcohol testing services
Screen4 offers testing for both ETG and FAEE markers. We can provide segmentation of the hair sample to give a month-by-month account of chronic alcohol consumption or abstinence.
We report the information as analysed in a clear impartial manner to ensure complete transparency of the data so it can be clearly understood by all those parties involved, in what is usually a very emotive and distressing time.
We provide a comprehensive report and Certificate of Analysis within the same document to allow simple understanding of the issues and the actual test data.
