  3. wow

    “(PETH) TESTING
    The most accurate blood test to determine Alcohol Abuse for family
    courts, fitness to practice, clinical studies and treatment centers.
    Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) Testing provides a detection of alcohol abuse
    with 99% sensitivity (far higher than traditional blood testing methods)
    A blood spot/micro sample can be collected by finger prick making it less
    invasive than a full venipuncture (needle and vial collection)
    PEth testing is not affected by medications, illnesses, previous drinking
    habits, age or the health of the donor
    The result provides a detection period of up to 3-4 weeks
    Ideally combined with Hair or Nail testing ”
