Alcohol Testing Supplies in Longview, TX

Testing methods should be based on the circumstances, the need for accuracy, and the required detection window.

Each test can identify the presence or recent consumption of alcohol, but they don’t tell the degree of impairment. 

Alcohol Saliva Test

This method measures the amount of alcohol in a person’s saliva, serving as a quick, non-invasive preliminary screening tool.

Urine Test (EtG Test)

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG), present in urine post-alcohol consumption, can be detected up to 80 hours afterward, offering a longer detection window than breath or blood tests, subject to various factors.

Breath Test (Breathalyzer)

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured by the amount of alcohol in the air exhaled by an individual. Breathalyzers, used by law enforcement during traffic stops or by employers in the workplace, offer the advantage of providing immediate, non-invasive results for determining impairment.

Hair Follicle Test

By measuring ethyl glucuronide (EtG) or fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEE) in hair follicles, this method can detect alcohol consumption over the past 90 days, making it useful for assessing long-term alcohol consumption patterns due to its extended detection period.
