A critical evaluation of the ETS-PLUS Ethyl Alcohol Assay indicates that it is simple to perform, sensitive enough to reliably detect ethanol above a concentration of 0.010 g/dL, and dynamic enough to reliably quantitate ethanol concentrations between 0.010 and 0.400 g/dL, correlating well with headspace gas chromatography. The technique is suitable for the(More)
