Alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol) determination is the most frequently performed medico-legal test, and alcohol is the most common toxic substance encountered. In addition to beverages, products containing alcohol in significant amounts include mouthwashes, colognes and medicinal preparations. Measurements of alcohol levels are used to determine legal impairment for forensic purposes, in diagnosis and treatment of alcohol dependency and, in emergency settings, to detect alcohol poisoning.

Do not use alcohol solutions as a skin preparation for drawing
specimen. Use non-alcohol solutions such as Betadine(R) or
Zephiran(R). Keep specimen tightly capped. Prevent exposure to
atmosphere. Transport at room temperature
Serum separator tubes (SST) should not be used
for this test.
