- Next, dip the test strip in the specimen for at least 10-15 seconds. Do not immerse above the MAX line.
- Then, remove the strip from the specimen and place it on a non-absorbent flat surface.
- Next, start the timer and wait for the colored band(s) to appear.
- Finally, read the result at 5 minutes. Do not interpret it after 10 minutes.
This alcohol urine test includes internal procedural controls.
If there’s a sufficient amount of specimen and the procedure is followed properly, a positive result will show as a colored band in the control region.
However, there are no external controls in this kit. That’s why we highly recommend further testing to verify positive results.

An EtG test strip detects the presence of alcohol in human urine. EtG stands for Ethyl Glucuronide, a byproduct of ethanol, which makes alcoholic beverages intoxicating.
Think of it as a biological marker for alcohol consumption. It tells you whether a person is staying away from alcohol or not.
However, unlike complicated lab procedures, which can take days to get results, these Etg test strips only take as little as five minutes.
- A positive result shows a colored band in the control region.
- On the other hand, you’ll see two colored bands on the strip when the test is negative.
- No visible marks mean the test is invalid. When and if this happens, you’ll need to repeat the test to rule out false results.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use an alcohol test strip
- Remove the EtG strip from the sealed pouch or canister. For best results, only open the packet if you intend to use it within an hour.
- Then, hold the strip in the area where the label is. Do not touch the membrane to avoid contamination.
- Next, hold the strip vertically and dip it in the urine specimen for at least 10-15 seconds. Do not soak past the maximum line of the test strip.
- Once done, remove the alcohol strip from the specimen. Then, place it on a non-absorbent flat surface.
- Start the timer and wait for the colored band to appear.
- Finally, Read the result within 5 minutes. Do not interpret after 10 minutes as this might lead to a false result.
