Drug and alcohol biomarkers may show up in keratin specimens within hours of ingestion, depending on the dosage, with concentration levels maximizing 2 weeks after ingestion. Environmental exposure may be detected immediately.

Fingernail Fingernails provide a test specimen that is at the cutting edge of drug and alcohol testing. Composed of keratin, the same material as hair, fingernails are simple to collect and easy to ship and store. As the nail grows, substances can pass from the blood vessels below the nail into the keratin fibers where they become trapped. Biomarkers become locked in keratin fibers along the entire length of the nail. Nail keratin is four times thicker than hair keratin, more stable, and extremely difficult to adulterate, resulting in a longer window of detection for fingernail testing than for hair testing, up to 3 months for alcohol, and up to 6 months for substances of abuse.

Hair and nail collection materials. Collection instructions can be found at www.USDTL.com.

Fingernail specimens are clipped and collected by the donor in front of a trained collection staff member. A clipping of 2-3 mm long (about the width of a quarter) from all ten fingernails will provide about 100 mg of specimen. For EtG, add-ons and/or tests above 10-panel, 150 mg of specimen is required.

Hair Hair testing is a powerful tool for the detection of drug and alcohol abuse. Hair provides a long-term history of drug and alcohol abuse by trapping biomarkers in the keratin fibers of the growing hair strand. When collected close to the scalp, hair can provide up to a 3 month history of drug and alcohol abuse. Hair offers a specimen that is simple to collect, somewhat difficult to adulterate, and easy to ship. A 1.5 inch specimen of about 200 strands of hair (about ¼ inch in diameter, the size of a #2 pencil) closest to the scalp will give 100 mg of hair. For EtG, add-ons and/or tests above 10-panel, 150 mg of specimen is required.

Native & Metabolite

Metabolite Only

When a child is exposed to illegal substance abuse they often also face other coexisting obstacles to a normal life - neglect, abuse, violence, and other vulnerabilities. Substance abuse is a disease, one that often prevents adults from doing what is in a child’s best interests. Our environmental exposure test for children can help. Our hair environmental exposure test is the only drug test designed to detect passive exposure to drugs and detect both native drugs and drug metabolites in the hair specimen. Drug metabolites are produced in the body only if drugs have been ingested. Children in drug exposed environments are most often not drug users themselves, so drug metabolites are typically absent in child specimens. However, the hair, like a sponge, can absorb nonmetabolized drug (native drug) if it is exposed through things such as touching or being in contact with drugs or drug users. Standard hair tests with other labs will only report a positive exposure result if drug metabolites are

detected, even when the native drug is in the child’s hair specimen. Our hair environmental exposure test reports a positive result if either native drugs or drug metabolites are detected.

PEth Testing PEth Phosphatidylethanol (PEth) in blood specimens offers the most objective, sensitive, and reliable method for measuring direct alcohol biomarkers. PEth is an abnormal phospholipid formed in red blood cells, where it exists as part of the cell membrane. Research suggests a PEth test can differentiate between incidental exposure (e.g. ethanol-based hand sanitizers) and the intentional consumption of alcohol. PEth is a mid to long-term alcohol biomarker, and a positive result (measuring PEth species 16:0/18:1) is an indication of alcohol exposure during the 2-3 weeks prior to specimen collection.

PEth

Red Blood Cell Membrane (Phospholipids)

Red Blood Cell

= Ethanol

PEth is immediately formed in the presence of ethanol (BAC). Degradation appears to be spontaneous hydrolysis. Currently, there’s no identified metabolic degradation mechanism. Accumulation and degradation are disproportionate, leading to a reservoir buildup.

Formation

Degradation

Blood Membrane Reservoir PEth testing has been: • Shown to improve self-reporting of alcohol use in several research studies • Used successfully to reduce recidivism rates in Wisconsin’s 12-month driver’s safety plan following DUI convictions • Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for use in airline pilot Human Intervention Motivation Study programs • Beneficial in child custody cases, drug courts, and professional health programs *Please contact forensictesting@usdtl.com if you would like to receive detailed information about these studies.

Window of Detection: 2-3 Weeks Dried Blood Spots We offer PEth testing in both dried blood spots and whole blood. Dried blood spot collection is the fastest, most convenient way to test for PEth. Five dried blood spots from a finger puncture (or 5 ml of blood from a standard blood draw using anticoagulation tube collection) is all that is required for PEth testing. Standard collection supplies provided include 2 lancets, 2 alcohol prep pads, gauze, a collection card, and the dried blood spot drying box. We also provide the requisition form for the collection, which includes all necessary bar code stickers to maintain a proper chain of custody. Unlike venipuncture, dried blood spot collection is performed by the specimen donor and can be observed by any staff member, after a short training session. The dried blood spot drying box makes collection even easier by eliminating wait time.

Dried blood spot collection materials. Collection instructions can be found at www.USDTL.com.

For those interested in whole blood testing, we also offer testing services to detect cannabinoid use (THC) and ethanol (EtOH).

Dried Blood Spot Collection is as easy as: 1. Puncture

2. Drop

3. Instant Seal & Ship

Alcohol Biomarkers - 3-3-3

As a rule of thumb for alcohol testing, think 3-3-3 - three days, three weeks, three months - to figure out which test, and which window of detection, meets your needs.

Direct biomarker testing is accomplished in several different specimen types, including alternative matrices

k 3-3

such as hair and fingernails. A positive EtG result in fingernail or hair specimens can indicate multiple occurrences (six or more) of high alcohol consumption (0.08% BAC) within a three month window of detection prior to testing. PEth is detected in dried blood spot specimens and can indicate high alcohol consumption within the three weeks prior to specimen collection. An EtG/EtS positive result in urine can indicate alcohol consumption within three days of specimen collection.

DA

The most objective alcohol testing results are accomplished using direct alcohol biomarkers such as phosphatidylethanol (PEth), ethyl glucuronide (EtG), and ethyl sulfate (EtS). PEth, EtG, and EtS are direct products of alcohol metabolism. In contrast, indirect biomarkers (e.g. MCV and CDT, among others) indicate physiological effects of alcohol consumption on the body, and can often be confounded by non-alcohol related factors such as disease states, changes in liver function, infection, and even pregnancy.

The movement and location of physical evidence from the time it is obtained until the time it is presented in court is the legal definition of chain of custody. The results of any alcohol or substance abuse test performed at USDTL may eventually be presented as evidence in a court of law, and this is why USDTL maintains universal chain of custody regardless of the client source of testing specimens.

Laboratory Certification

A well-maintained and legal chain of custody begins at the time of specimen collection and continues uninterrupted until test results have been presented in court, if necessary. There are several key elements that must be present when specimens arrive at USDTL. The specimen container must be sealed with an intact security seal. Next, the sample must be accompanied by a Custody and Control Form with an ID number matching the number on the specimen container. Thirdly, the Custody and Control Form must be signed and dated by an authorized agent from the client. An unbroken chain of custody ensures sample integrity in several ways that preserve the legal usefulness of alcohol and drug testing results. I certify that the specimen received with this form was sealed in the appropriate container Printed USDTL Accessioner’s Name

with the seal intact, and the identification number and/or name on this form matches that on the specimen, and the specimen was transferred to temporary laboratory storage.

Glossary of Terms and Sign up for an Account Glossary of Terms Adulterate — When a donor tries to affect their test specimen (hair, urine, etc.) in order to reduce or eliminate the amount of drug and alcohol biomarker in the specimen, they are attempting to adulterate the specimen. Biomarker — a measurable substance whose presence is indicative of ingestion or exposure to specific substances. Chain of Custody — The chain of custody is a paper trail of specimen collection, and is necessary to maintain the legal validity of testing results should they need to be presented in court as evidence. It records custody, control, transfer and analysis of a test specimen as it moves through the testing process. Chain of custody (a.k.a. chain of evidence) proves that the evidence given in court concerning a drug test is the same evidence collected from the donor. Chain of custody proves that no one tampered with the evidence. A court can exclude the evidence if proper chain of custody was not maintained. GC-MS, LC-MS/MS (Gas Chromatography — Mass Spectrometry, Liquid Chromatography — Tandem Mass Spectrometry) — Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry instruments are state-of-the-art tools we use to screen and confirm our test specimens. They are manned 24 hours a day by highly qualified toxicology scientists. Keratin — A protein found in several biological tissues including nails, hair, skin, feathers, animal hooves, and others. Keratin forms fibers in tissues, which are very effective at capturing and trapping drug and alcohol biomarkers. Window of Detection — The length of time following ingestion that a substance can be detected in a test specimen.
