Alcohol Drug Tests -
"Alcohol Drug Screening"
drug tests have been on the market since before 1990. These
tests come in two basic forms, an oral test and a breath test.
breath alcohol test checks human breath for traces of
oral alcohol test examines human saliva for traces of
alcohol. Drug and alcohol drug testing is often required for
D.O.T. jobs, both prior to employment (pre-employment)
during employment (random or
cause based). The amount of alcohol that is detectable will
depend on how much beer or liquor the person being testing has
consumed, as well as their weight, how long ago they drank, and
a laboratory based urine test that will detect the presence of
alcohol up to 80 hours after consumption. This is sometimes
referred to as “The 80 Hour Alcohol Test” and tests for Ethyl
Glucuronide and Ethyl Sulfate. For more information, click:

Department of Transportation (DOT).
