Test. Identify. Act.
Accurately detect long-term heavy alcohol consumption using a simple blood drawn or saliva collected at home.
About this screening
Alcoholism is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States and is a principal driver of premature aging. Alcoholism is highly treatable. However, like smoking, the effects of alcoholism are often not suspected until liver failure, heart disease or accident highlight its presence.
Tragically, for clinicians, reliable tests to differentiate normal recreational use are not clinically available. Alcohol Signature™ changes that dysfunctional dynamic. Available in both saliva and blood-based testing formats, Alcohol Signature™ sensitively detects chronic heavy alcohol consumption better than currently available methods and is not affected by genetic variation that is known other forms of testing.
Because alcohol consumption can lead to specific recognizable epigenetic chemical changes, the impacts of alcohol abuse remains in DNA for days, weeks, months – or even longer.
Much more accurate than a breathalyzer – providing results that analyze alcohol consumption over time instead of the past several hours – Alcohol Signature™ technology from Behavioral Diagnostics can measure the exact level of DNA methylation – modification of a gene without changing the sequence – caused by alcohol consumption to determine the likelihood of heavy alcohol consumption.
The Alcohol Signature™ test is extremely accurate and can quantify alcohol consumption in all types of substance abusers. Even if alcohol hasn’t been consumed in several days, modifications to genes can be documented in the test and can’t be masked by any type of drug or tampering.
