Urine Alcohol Tests and Saliva Alcohol Tests

These Alcohol tests are INSTANT alcohol tests available for SALIVA and URINE samples. These alcohol tests will only detect RECENT alcohol use. These tests can be used in conjunction with instant screening drug tests for Urine and Saliva samples. Positive or non-negative screening results may require a more detailed laboratory confirmation alcohol test.

Blood Alcohol Tests: Liver Function Test (LFT)

Alcohol can be toxic to the liver. A person who consumes excessive amounts of alcohol will damage their liver and may experience decreased liver function.

Liver Function Tests (LFT) measures various enzymes in the blood that are produced by the liver. An abnormal result indicates a problem with the liver. For example an elevated Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) value is a biochemical indicator of possible alcohol abuse. We test a panel of markers including Total Bilirubin, AST, ACT, ALP and Gamma GT to ensure the result is as accurate as possible.
