The Ethyl Glucuronide Urine Test is a rapid one step test for the qualitative detection of Ethyl Glucuronide in human urine at 500 ng/ml cut-off level.

Ethyl Glucuronide (ETG500) is a metabolite of ethyl alcohol which is formed in the body by glucuronidation following exposure to ethanol, such as by drinking alcoholic beverages. It is used as a biomarker to test for ethanol use and to monitor alcohol abstinence in situations where drinking is prohibited, such as in the military, in professional monitoring programs (health professionals, attorneys, airline pilots in recovery from addictions), in schools, in liver transplant clinics, or in recovering alcoholic patients. ETG can be measured in urine up to approximately 80 hours after ethanol is ingested. ETG is a more accurate indicator of the recent exposure to alcohol than measuring for the presence of ethanol itself

How to use

Test must be in room temperature (50.0℉ ~86.0℉/10 ºC ~30 ºC).


  1. Open the sealed pouch by tearing along the notch. Remove the test device from the pouch.

  2. Hold the one side of the device with one hand. Use the other hand to pull out the cap and expose the absorbent end. 

  3. Immerse the absorbent end into the urine sample about 10 seconds. Make sure that the urine level is not above the “MAX” line printed on the front of the device.

  4. Lay the device flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface.

  5. Read the result at 5 minutes. Do not read after 5 minutes.

Read the result

result reading

Positive (+)

One colored line appears in the control line region (C). No line appears in the test line region (T). This positive result indicates that the drug concentration exceeds the detectable level.

Negative (-)

Two lines appear. One colored line should be in the control line region (C), and another apparent colored line should be in the test line region (T). This negative result indicates that the drug concentration is below the detectable level.


Control line fails to appear. Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test using a new test. If the problem persists, discontinue using the lot immediately and contact your local distributor with the lot number.
