The West Bohemian University in Pilsen has had to suspend the testing of spirits for methanol free of charge after getting inundated by hundreds of requests from the public. The university made the offer on Monday and within an hour long queues of people had formed around the building all carrying liquor they had at home. The university says its laboratories are running at full capacity to service the public and it will take some time to process the requests received. The university made the offer in view of the fact that under normal circumstances the price of such a test would be far higher than the price of the alcohol itself.
