Serum samples will be diluted 3-fold during deproteination. You have to add water to give 100 μL sample for the assay. The ethanol concentration should be 0.04% or higher in the diluted sample, or (>0.2%) in the initial serum sample, in order to be quantified accurately. Our enzyme based ethanol assay (ECET-100), which is more sensitive, might be a better option for you.
Yes, glucose and other compound containing hydroxyl groups (sugars, glycerol, etc.) do interfere with the assay. Samples containing high amounts of glucose should be pretreated with our saccaride removal kit (DSRK-500). Our enzyme based ethanol assay (ECET-100), which is more specific, is the better option for such samples.
