Live Scan Labs offers testing for an array of substances. Our panels can test a variety of specimens, such as blood, urine, and hair, depending on the desired detection period. Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a direct metabolite of ethanol alcohol and can be used to detect recent alcohol consumption even after the ethanol alcohol is no longer measurable (usually up to 80 hours after ethanol alcohol has been metabolized by the body).
Employers: We offer pre-employment, random testing and post-incident testing for your business, contact us today to get more information on our Business Drug Testing services.
Not All Addicts Smoke Marijuana
Marijuana accounts for only 43% of all positive drug tests. 57% are other substances. Drug use in the workplace poses a serious risk to employee safety and productivity. Employers are obligated to provide a safe and healthy environment for employees. We provide quick results for drug and alcohol testing. No one gets you results faster.
EtG Alcohol Testing
Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a direct metabolite of ethanol alcohol and can be used to detect recent alcohol consumption, even after the ethanol alcohol is no longer measurable (usually up to 80 hours after ethanol alcohol has been metabolized by the body). This urine test is used for folks who are required to abstain from alcohol.
Studies conducted have proven EtG screening is accurate in detecting recent alcohol consumption regardless of the individual’s prior drinking history. EtG testing is used as an effective tool for law enforcement, corrections and treatment programs.
Hair Alcohol Testing
A hair alcohol test can detect alcohol consumption for a 90 day period. The longer the hair sample, the larger the detection window (up to a year, in certain cases).
Hair drug testing, also known as hair follicle drug testing, requires a small sample of hair that is collected under direct supervision without any invasion of privacy. Despite assumption it is not actually a hair follicle test, as the hair is not plucked from the head. It’s cut with scissors. During a hair collection, the collector cuts approximately 100-120 strands of hair from the crown of the donor’s head. The hair is cut as close to the scalp as possible, so only the strands of hair above the scalp are tested and not the actual hair follicle.
What can affect the results?
A range of treatments can affect the results of a hair tests, such as sprays, gels, bleaching, straightening, and perming. Before a test is performed, it is important to submit a list of used hair products to the laboratory to avoid incorrect results.
