Alcohol Hair Test
Alcohol Hair Test
 
Our Price: $225.00

Product Code: ALCOHOL 02

Description
 
With as much as an inch and a half of hair cut from the scalp of a person, a hair alcohol testing laboratory can find out what a person’s approximated consumption of alcohol has been up to a 30 day history and if the hair sample is longer, as much as a year of alcohol consumption can be tested. A series of assessments called FAEE, fatty acid ethyl esters and EtG alcohol testing are done to measure the amount of FAEE and EtG markers that are revealed in the tests. The more alcohol a person has consumed, the more markers will be present on a test. Hair testing for alcohol markers is now recognised is US judicial systems.

A word of caution -
Alcohol EtG testing in hair specimens suffers from many limitations. Legally, this testing has been found to be only reliable for determining “chronic excessive alcohol consumption.” It cannot determine whether alcohol consumption occurred on-duty or off-duty and, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, employment cannot be denied for off-duty alcohol consumption. When coupled with very real concerns of external alcohol exposure from substances encountered every day, and recommendations that EtG hair tests be supported by other, more reliable tests, Alcohol EtG hair testing becomes extremely problematic.
