Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i want you to know alcohol analysers have different sensitivities and different thresholds for alcohol. Although 72 hours is enough time for alcohol to get detoxified completely and get sober but some tests can trace last alcohol drunk for quite longer, althpugh you wont be under influence and thats what this test is for.

Take care
