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.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
