BACKGROUND Urine ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is considered as a specific marker of recent ethanol consumption. We describe false-positive DRI(®) EIA EtG enzyme immunoassay results caused by propyl glucuronides in urine after using a propanol-based hand sanitizer. METHODS EtG screening was done with the DRI(®) EIA EtG assay (Microgenics), using a cut-off of 0… CONTINUE READING
