Alcohol Rapid Test is a rapid method for the detection of Alcohol in human saliva at a cut-off concentration of 20mg/dL
Two-thirds of all adults drink alcohol. However, alcohol intoxication can lead to loss of alertness, coma, death and birth defects. The blood alcohol concentration(BAC) at which a person becomes impaired is variable. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has established a BAC of 0.02% (20mg/dL) as the cut-off level at which an individual is considered positive for the presence of alcohol. Determination of ethyl alcohol in urine, 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.
