FAQ: Alcohol Assays

Q: Can this kit be used to detect alcohols other than ethanol?

A: The enzyme used in our Alcohol Assay Kits is not ethanol specific and can be used to detect other alcohols.  To use this kit with alcohol samples other than ethanol, the ethanol standard curve should be replaced with your own alcohol standard curve. The enzyme reaction rate may be different with other alcohols so the standard curve concentrations may need to be adjusted.
