Alcohol is among the highest contributing factors to family breakdown, health problems, domestic violence, etc. Unfortunately, what starts as everyday drinking advances into addiction over time. Here comes the part of alcoholism testing. An alcohol detection test is a simple and suitable way to ensure that your near and dear ones are free from alcohol abuse.
Signs of Alcohol Abuse
Signs of alcohol abuse can include:
Nausea, insomnia, etc., when an individual does not drink
Drinking alcohol every day and trying to hide it from their family, relatives, and friends
Changes in sleep pattern
Decreased attendance in offices and schools.
Alcohol detection test services can help individuals determine the frequency and alcohol consumption patterns.
Samples Collection for Nail and Hair Alcohol Testing
For nail alcohol testing, clipping of the nails should be as close to the nail bed as possible. If the nail length is 5 mm, one nail clipping can be sufficient for the test. When the nail is shorter, it's better to take nail clippings of 10 mg (approx.) for a conclusive result. Both toenails & fingernails can be used, but never a mixture of both.
On the other hand, for hair alcohol testing, around 200 hair strands are required. A minimum 3 cm section is taken from the scalp for the EtPa and EtG tests. Depending upon the hair length, this test can give an overview of excessive alcohol consumption in an individual for 3-6 months.
