Many different biomarkers can be used to evaluate ethanol intake. Ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is a minor metabolite of ethanol. Its investigation is of interest in both clinical and forensic contexts because of the wide window of detection. The analysis was performed by LC-ESI-MS/MS and SPE was used as a pretreatment. The method has been developed and fully validated according to the guidelines of forensic toxicology for the analysis of EtG in hair.
