Expected use

The Urine Alcohol Test Strip is a fast and highly sensitive method of detecting the presence of alcohol in human urine. This test only provides a preliminary result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography (GC) is the preferred confirmatory method. Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.

Summary and explanation

The Urine Alcohol Test Strip is a chemical test based on an enzymatic reaction sensitive to alcohol. Alcohol, if present in the sample, reacts with the chemicals in the reaction pad and causes a color change. The urine alcohol test strip consists of a plastic strip with a reaction pad attached to the tip.

The reaction pad employs a solid phase chemical system that uses a highly specific enzymatic reaction. Upon contact with alcohol samples, the reaction pad will rapidly change color depending on the concentration of alcohol present. This color change is proportional to the concentration of alcohol in the sample. By comparing with the color blocks in the color chart printed on the bag, an approximate alcohol concentration can be determined.
