HRP Tracer Specification

Description: Ethylglucuronide is a metabolite which is formed in the body following ingestion of ethanol. It is used as a biomarker to test for ethanol use in situations where such use is prohibited, such as by the military or in recovering alcoholic patients. EtG has several advantages due to its specificity for ethanol, slow elimination in urine, and detectability by drug testing of hair which allows detection of ethanol use long after its shorter lasting major metabolites such as acetaldehyde have been eliminated from the body.
DilnFactor: 8000
Format: The conjugate is supplied as a concentrate. Dilute as required and use working strength conjugate immediately after dilution
Lot: ESC5069
Specificity: Each conjugate comprises antigen covalently bound to horseradish peroxide and is suitable as a tracer in immunoassay development.
Storage: +2-+8C for up to 3 months / <20C for long term storage
