Urine Alcohol Testing

A DUI or DWI can be devastating. At 12 Panel Now, we are dedicated to help individuals experience all the beauty that sobriety has to offer.

DUI (driving under the influence) and DWI (driving while intoxicated) testing is a critical component of law enforcement efforts to prevent impaired driving and ensure road safety. Both DUI and DWI refer to the act of operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Let’s explore the methods used for DUI and DWI alcohol testing, and how 12 Panel Now can provide the necessary supplies for effective testing.

DUI and DWI Testing Methods

DUI and DWI testing primarily involves urine alcohol tests and oral fluid (saliva) tests to detect alcohol and drug use. These tests can screen for a wide range of substances, including marijuana, cocaine, opioids, amphetamines, and benzodiazepines. The process begins with the collection of a specimen, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Urine tests are commonly used due to their cost-effectiveness and ability to detect drug use over the past several days. Oral fluid tests offer the advantage of providing more recent drug use information but may be less practical for large-scale DUI and DWI testing programs.

Alcohol DUI and DWI Testing

Alcohol is the most common substance detected in DUI and DWI testing. Urine alcohol testing can detect the presence of alcohol metabolites up to several days after consumption. 

12 Panel Now is proud to provide EtG (ethyl glucuronide) tests for the detection of alcohol consumption.Unlike blood or breath testing, EtG urine dip tests’ can read positive results even from the lowest alcohol exposure. They can detect Ethyl glucuronide in urine up to 80 hours or 3.3 days after initial consumption.

Ethyl Glucuronide Testing

Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a metabolite of alcohol that can be detected in a urine test for up to several days after consumption. EtG testing is useful in situations where traditional urine alcohol tests may not capture recent alcohol use, such as:

  • DUI and DWI investigations: EtG testing can help determine if a person was impaired at the time of the incident, even if they passed a standard urine alcohol test.
  • Employment testing: EtG testing can detect recent alcohol use that may not be apparent on a standard urine alcohol test.
  • Custody battles: EtG testing can provide evidence of recent alcohol use in child custody disputes or family court cases.

When to Use EtG Testing

EtG testing is most useful in situations where recent alcohol use is a concern, and traditional urine alcohol tests may not provide accurate results. This includes:

  • Suspected recent alcohol use: If there are signs of recent alcohol consumption that a standard urine alcohol test might miss, an EtG test may be appropriate.
  • Important decisions: In situations where alcohol use could influence decisions with significant consequences, like DUI investigations or custody battles, EtG testing can provide valuable additional information.
  • Long-term sobriety: For individuals trying to demonstrate long-term abstinence, an EtG test can confirm the absence of recent alcohol use.
