Need clarification: Etg is a test for ethyl glucuronide. It is a metabolite of ethanol (the alcohol in our liquors, beer, wine, etc). It can remain in your body up to 80 hours after drinking alcohol. Samhsa (substance abuse & mental health services administration) a govt entity, doesnt recommend this test be used for legal reasons because simple using hand sanitizer can make you test positive.
