Customer Question

Hi I have a glass of wine at 11pm on fri night and I have to test the next day. It's the 8 panel etg . I drunk a lot of water during the day before the test. It was 22 hours.. would the etg test still detect the alcohol ?

I understand your concern.
As per your description,usually EtG testing can detect recent alcohol use for 26-80 hours.
In most of the cases,ETG test detect withing 26 hours.
In chronic alcohol users,ETG test detect for 80 hours.
With just one drink, I think that your chances are excellent probably closer to negative results.
However it's good to continue hydration sufficiently and if you can extend your test for next few hours then chances of getting pass this test increase over the time.
