Hair testing for EtG metabolites is a very accurate way to determine all recent alcohol use. This alcohol screening method is highly sensitive and can detect alcohol consumption even months after the event. Transmetron can even provide this unique method of alcohol testing on-site for businesses and individuals.
The body produces EtG and EtS when alcohol is present in the bloodstream and the EtG markers that are absorbed into the hair structure is what is analyzed from a sample of hair.

The most recent 3.9 cm of hair is generally considered first by Transmetron for the most effective sample we can collect for this specific EtG alcohol hair drug test.
