Considering that alcohol is the most widely used drug in the United States, and alcohol problems cost companies billions of dollars each year, it is in an employer’s best interest to monitor the use and abuse of alcohol by its employees.
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence estimates that close to 15 million full-time workers in the United States are heavy drinkers. Employees who habitually consume excessive amounts of alcohol may have a tendency to frequently be tardy, absent from work, suffer from health problems and pose a greater risk of harming themselves and others.
Noble Diagnostics has a variety of products and services that can detect the presence of alcohol in a person’s system.
URINE ALCOHOL TESTS – LAB-BASED
(Ethyl Glucoronide Alcohol Test (EtG/EtS))
Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and ethyl sulfate (EtS) are metabolites of alcohol (ethanol) that are more slowly eliminated from the body than alcohol itself and can thus be used to document abstinence and detect a trend toward relapse. The presence of EtG is a definitive indicator that alcohol was ingested.
Detection times can be up to 80 hours
Allows monitoring in alcohol treatment programs
Ideal for zero tolerance situations
