If you can get blood, that would be best for the alcohol determination reported as (grams per 100mL of alcohol).
Blood Alcohol: (TX-BAC) - The ONLY toxicology testing the Iowa DCI Laboratory does on blood is to determine alcohol levels.
Refer to Private Laboratories Testing if drugs are needed. These cases will need to be sent to a private lab at your expense for the analyses.

Two results (grams/57mL) (grams/67mL) are reported when the urine sample is a first or random void. One result (grams/67mL) is reported when the urine sample is a 2nd void. Due to physiological variability, urine alcohol calculations tend to be rather conservative. Due to potential for production of alcohol post collections, urine sample storage (1% NaF) is critical.
