Intended Use

The DRI® Ethyl Alcohol Assay is intended for the quantitative determination of alcohol in human urine, serum or plasma.

Principle

DRI Ethyl Alcohol Assay is a liquid, ready-to-use, kinetic method based on the high specificity of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) for ethyl alcohol. In the presence of ADH and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), ethyl alcohol is readily oxidized to acetaldehyde and NADH. The enzymatic reaction can be monitored spectrophotometrically at 340 nm.
