Randox Testing Services utilises practical and efficient methods of alcohol testing and ensures patient comfort by use of non-invasive methods of sample collection. With a variety of methods including a breath test, urine test and hair strand test, we are able to conduct testing for short-term and long-term detection of alcohol consumption to ensure your testing needs are met.

Breath Test

A breath test offers a quick and convenient method to test for alcohol consumption. Measuring a person’s blood alcohol content, a breath test determines whether an individual has recently consumed alcohol and if they are over the legal limit or a pre-determined limit. An alcohol breath test can be performed on-site with immediate results using a breathalyser product.

At Randox Testing Services we test for blood alcohol content using breathalysers which are approved by the Home Office, legally defensible and used by a number of police forces across the UK.

Alcohol Testing

Urine Test

A urine test offers a practical method of alcohol testing, and is used to detect recent alcohol consumption with a detection window of less than 12 hours. To ensure testing which is accurate and reliable, our alcohol urine test consists of using 2 urine samples taken approximately 1 hour apart.

Hair Strand Test

A hair strand test can be used to detect long-term alcohol abuse with a detection window of 90+ days. Offering the longest detection window of all sample types, an alcohol hair test is utilised to detect alcohol consumption over a 3 month period. It is often used by employers or recruiters conducting pre-employment screening to assess the eligibility of applicants for a job role, family law solicitors requiring alcohol testing for family court cases and police officers involved in forensic toxicology cases.
