Target

  • Relevance

    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.
  • Alternative names

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you for your interest in our antibodies. We do not have plans to offer an anti-ethyl glucuronide antibody other than the sheep polyclonal, ab123950. However, please note that "sheep" is the host of the antibody, that is, the sheep is the animal that the antibody is created by. The antibody should be capable of detecting ethyl glucuronide from bovine sources.

However, this antibody may not be appropriate for a different reason: the immunogen contains bovine thyroglobulin, so there is a possibility of reaction with endogenous bovine thyroglobulin in your samples. Please reply with a description of your assay, so I can give more advice.
