  1. Question about concentration units used in the article

    I read with interest your article and it is very pertinent to a case that I am working on at the moment - involving alleged alcohol intoxication following use of an alchol-containing hand rub. My question relates to an apparent discrepancy between the units used for reporting the results (mg/L), and the units described in the Methods Section (detection limits and determination limits)which are in mg/mL.

    Could you provide the detection and determination limits in units of mg/L please?
