Useful for general screening in the assessment of ethanol exposure in the contexts of compliance and/or abuse. A screen with reflex testing is the preferred method for ruling out ethanol exposure. For follow-up testing of a presumptive result, Ethyl Glucuronide and Ethyl Sulfate, Urine, Quantitative (2007909) is preferred. Results do not accurately correlate with amount or frequency of ethanol use.
