We have the ability to modify the level of detection in most panels to identify the presence of a substance event with the smallest amount ingested

Which test for you?

Testing Options Made Simple

Guide to selecting the right test for your purposes:

  • Determine detection timeline:

    Drug Testing:
    When testing for the presence of drugs, a urine test (the most common, and least invasive method,) is an effective test for detecting ingestion within 1-30 days.
    Hair will retain substance ingestion data up to 90 days.
    Testing finger or toe nails will detect substances ingested up to 12 months from time of collection.
    Alcohol Testing:
    The current state of alcohol consumption can be measured with a Breathalyzer test, previous consumption can be detected through a urine test for up to 3 days.

  • Determine which substance(s) to detect.

    Narcotics, Prescription Drugs or Alcohol?

Alcohol Testing Options:

The most objective alcohol testing results are accomplished using direct products of alcohol biomarkers: Phosphatidylethanol (PEth), Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) and ethyl sulfate (EtS) are direct products of alcohol metabolism. There are lots of resources to describe how these biomarkers develop, but for the purposes of identifying the best test for the situation, it's important to point out that each of these biomarkers are useful in detecting the presence of alcohol at specific time periods following ingestion, or habitual ingestion.


Instant Breathalyzer (BAT): Platinum fuel cell technology enables a calibrated breathalyzer to instantly read of the current state of alcohol present in the breath. The most effective test in detecting very recent consumption.
AK&A Staff are trained, certified and accredited to use the most current, state-of-the-art testing protocols and equipment recommended by The Department of Transportation and used by law enforcement officers around the world.

Urine Tests

Urine EtG: A positive results in urine can indicate alcohol consumption within up to three days of specimen collection depending upon the amount of alcohol consumed.

Hair | Nail | Blood

Hair/Nails ETG: A positive EtG result in fingernail or hair specimens can detect multiple occurrences (six or more) of high alcohol consumption (0.08% BAC) within a three-month window of time prior to collection for testing.

PEth: PEth is detected in dried blood spot specimens and can indicate high alcohol consumption within the three weeks prior to specimen collection.
