Hello,
Welcome to Just answer!
EtG test detects alcohol metabolite Ethyl glucuronide in urine. Presence of this metabolite indicate recent alcohol ingestion. This test can detect alcohol intake up to 80 hours from the last ingestion. If your intake was 96 hours ago, then you are in safer side.

my last amount of consumption was sunday afternoon and then drank water, juice, organge juice, gatorade and soy milk from then on, as well as working out. my follow-up question is "Is the 80 mark the standard for these test, or do they become less reliable outside that 80 hour mark?"
Expert:  Dr. Shah replied 6 years ago.
I think you are pretty safe and outside the detection time frame. 80 hours is the maximum time frame, many people reach undetectable limits before 80 hours. Your intake was around 96 hours ago, so I don't think that you will test positive.
