Hi,

Im sorry to hear about your situation. Well the PEth test for alcohol is able to detect alcohol for upto 3 weeks later. This would come back as positive if your total intake of alcohol has been 200 g atleast. A single drink of alcohol roughly contains 14 g of alcohol, your intake was 28 g of alcohol. So it is less likely that the PEth test will be able to detect the alcohol in your system, this test is designed to detect regular and repeated use of alcohol instead of occasional use of alcohol. So in short, its unlikely that PEth test will detect alcohol in this case as it needs atleast consumption of 200 g of alcohol to come back as positive and your intake was only of 28 g.

Do you have any more questions?
