If a blood alcohol test is taken, but the sample is not tested for 5 weeks, is the test still accurate? Can the sample deteriorate?

If a blood alcohol test is taken, but the sample is not tested for 5 weeks, is the test still accurate?  Can the sample deteriorate?

Labs and Liability: If a lab is testing a sample and reporting a result then it has significant liability if the sample is not appropriate for testing. I would bet that the sample tested is accurate if the lab is willing to report the results. ...Read more

If i had 3 cups of vodka straight, how long will it take to leave my system? Will it show up in a blood alcohol test?

If i had 3 cups of vodka straight, how long will it take to leave my system? Will it show up in a blood alcohol test?

24-48 hours & YES!: 3 cups of vodka is about 24 shots - or 24 drinks and it takes roughly 1-2 hours for a drink to clear the averge persons body or longer for females. 3 cups of vodka at one time would most likely kill you or at least take you to the hospital with alcohol poisining & a pumping of your stomach. Don't do it! ...Read more

Blood alcohol test for my probation how far does the test go back.

Blood alcohol test for my probation  how far does the test go back.

Aprox. 2 days: Alcohol has an approximate detection time of 12-24 hours in urine. People who achieve a moderate level of intoxication (0.10% blood alcohol content - bac) are detectable about 8 hours after achieving that level. The interesting fact is that alcohol is absorbed into the blood relatively quickly and metabolized more slowly. ...Read more

How long does it take after having one beer to have a negative blood alcohol test?

How long does it take after having one beer to have a negative blood alcohol test?

A short time: one beer will rarely raise the blood alcohol level to more than 10 mg percent (0.1 grams percent), and we metabolize that amount in about one hour. So two hours or so after drinking the alcohol level should be zero. However, there are other tests, like ethyl glucuronide and ethyl sulfide, which test alcohol metabolites and they can remain positive for 1-2 days, depending on the test used. ...Read more

What happens if I was exposed to gas for a long period of time can it cause me to fail a blood alcohol test?

What happens if I was exposed to gas for a long period of time can it cause me to fail a blood alcohol test?

Don't know what: type of gas you are referring to. Are you referring to inhalation of gasoline ? From what I have read, heavy inhalation of gasoline fumes could impact a breathalyzer test reading. But I do not know if this is by a small amount or more. ...Read more

I had my last alcoholic drink 13 hours ago. I had to have a blood alcohol test at the hospital laboratory on the 13th hour. Will the alcohol show up?

I had my last alcoholic drink 13 hours ago.  I had to have a blood alcohol test at the hospital laboratory on the 13th hour.  Will the alcohol show up?

Probably yes: Alcohol has an approximate detection time of 12-24 hours in urine in routine tests. The detection time for alcohol depends upon the maximum level of blood alcohol content (bac) achieved and varies by individual. People who achieve intoxication of 0.10% bac are detectable about 8 hours after achieving that level. However, there are high sensitivity tests (etg) that can detect for days after. ...Read more
