Quantitative determination of ethanol from blood is used for scientific research, for evaluation of ethanol metabolism in the human body or in the forensic laboratory. The aim of our paper is to develop and validate a method in order to determine the quantity of blood ethanol using gas chromatography with headspace. We used a GC 6890 N Agilent equipment, with headspace G 1888, two columns for alcohol analysis (DB-ALC1 and DB-ALC2) and FID detectors. The retention time has been higher when using…

Cost-Effective Foam-Based Colorimetric Sensor for Roadside Testing of Alcohol in Undiluted Saliva

A novel foam-based colorimetric alcohol sensor developed for the detection of alcohol in saliva was easy to use, small, inexpensive and portable, enabling drivers to accurately measure their own blood alcohol level and providing convenient speed in forensic applications.

Determination of ethanol in blood using headspace gas chromatography with flameionization detector (HS-GC-FID): Validation of a method

Abstract Ethanol is a common psychoactive substance that has been widely consumed in several parts of the world. Gas chromatography (GC) coupled with flame ionisation detector (FID) has often been

Development and validation of a quantitative determination method of ethanol in Human Plasma: Experience of Laboratory of Toxicology and Pharmacology, Moroccan Poison Control and Pharmacovigilance Center

Acute intoxication and chronic ethanol is recognized by specific symptoms and needs to be confirmed by blood or plasma ethanol dosage. Although, the aim of our paper is to develop and validate a



Blood Analysis by Headspace Gas Chromatography: Does a deficient sample volume distort ethanol concentration?

Experiments showed that a deficient volume of blood and excess NaF actually lowered the concentration of ethanol by 2-3% compared with heparinised blood, and it was shown that the concentrations of ethanol was lowered even more when a 4-carbon alcohol was used as the internal standard.
