Hair Alcohol Testing (ETG)
Tests for: Alcohol by checking minor ethanol metabolites ETG and/or fatty acid ethyl esters “FAEE.
There are many ways to test for alcohol use. However, traditional detection times for screening for alcohol consumption are too limited, often only detecting the past use for a couple hours or days. The hair alcohol test can detect alcohol consumption for up to 3 months. The report will also characterize the usage as negative, mild/moderate, and excessive. The minimum length of hair required is 1 inch.
Detection time: up to 3 months of prior usage.
What to expect at the lab:
The process at the lab is very simple. In most cases there are no long lines to wait in and no paperwork to fill out. Simply present your AMH issued registration number, provide a photo ID (driver’s license, passport, and in some cases school ID), then provide the specimen.
The collector only needs a small amount of hair (90-120 strands), which is collected directly from the scalp. This collection does not leave any visible spots or changes in appearance, and because the entire collection is done by a professional there is a minimal chance for specimen adulteration or substitution.
Hair follicle testing typically results out in 3-5 business days; however, this time may be shorter or longer depending on certain circumstances. AMH will be happy to call as soon as results are available, provided a donor’s contact number is available, or the donor may simply call a counselor to access his/her results. Hard copies of test results can also be sent at the donor’s request.
