Alcohol Tests

Trusted Labs will combine traditional Blood Tests together with Hair Alcohol Testing to provide you with a fully comprehensive result.

Trusted Labs can establish an accurate historical record of alcohol usage providing information, which can help to differentiate between a one-off user and a chronic substance misuser.

Hair Alcohol Analysis Explained

Our alcohol hair test detects the alcohol biomarkers FAEE’s (Fatty Acid Ethyl Esters) and EtG (Ethyl Glucuronide).  EtG and FAEE can only be carried out on head hair and requires a sample with a minimum length of 3cm. If both drugs and alcohol testing are requested, a further sample, again minimum length 3cm, is needed due to the different analytical techniques carried out in the laboratory for these tests.

We will provide the results in 5 working days of receipt of the sample into our laboratory.

Blood Alcohol Analysis Explained

LFT/CDT blood testing – The Liver Function Test (LFT) analyses the levels of a number of enzymes produced in the liver. Our Carbohydrate Deficient Transferrin (CDT) test is generally used to identify alcohol usage over a shorter period of time than the LFT.
