Cat.No.: ALC 711
Rapid Alcohol Test is intended for use as a rapid method to detect the presence of alcohol in saliva for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) greater than 0.02%. It has been published that the concentration of alcohol in saliva is almost equal to that in blood.
The rapid test is intended for the semi-quantitation of ethyl alcohol in human saliva. To confirm the concentration of positive specimens, an alternate, non-enzymatic technology such as headspace gas chromatography should be used.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
Alcohol intoxication can lead to loss of alertness, coma, death and as well as birth defects. The BAC at which a person becomes impaired is variable. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has established a BAC of 0.02% (0.02g/dL) as the cut-off level at which an individual is considered positive for the presence of alcohol.
Determination of ethyl alcohol in blood and saliva is commonly used for measuring legal impairment, alcohol poisoning, etc. Gas chromatography techniques and enzymatic methods are commercially available for the determination of ethyl alcohol in human fluids. SEO Rapid Alcohol Test is designed as the screen tool to rapidly determine if the BAC level is higher than 0.02% by testing saliva specimen.
