Health Canada Registered Successfully! - CITEST Alcohol Rapid Test

July 18, 2023

CITEST is pleased to announce that our Alcohol Rapid Test has registered Health Canada successfully!


Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant that affects the brain and body in various ways. It is a legal substance that is widely consumed around the world. However, excessive alcohol consumption can lead to impaired judgment, decreased reaction time, and a range of negative health consequences.


In Canada, alcohol consumption is a significant public health issue. According to the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction, approximately 75% of Canadians drink alcohol, with 20% reporting heavy drinking episodes. Alcohol-related harms, including accidents, injuries, and chronic diseases, are a leading cause of deaths and hospitalizations in Canada.


CITEST's Alcohol Rapid Test provides a quick and highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol in urine and saliva, providing an approximation of relative blood alcohol concentration.


With the approval of the Medical Device License from Health Canada, CITEST's Alcohol Rapid Test is now officially recognized as a reliable and effective medical device for use in alcohol testing.
