Fuel Cell Breathalyzers offer an unprecedented degree of accuracy when measuring BAC levels, and the Alcoscan ALC-1 was built on the foundation of providing precision, reliability, and ease-of-use in one comprehensive package.
Crafted from durable materials that can stand up to the most demanding of situations, yet light enough so as not to cause hand strain or fatigue with consistent use, the technology behind the Alcoscan ALC-1 is preferred by more law enforcement agencies and medical facilities than any other brand. Even with the required AAA batteries inserted (sold separately), the entire unit weighs less than 85g. A simple button press and the device warms up in less than 2 minutes, and is capable of capturing BAC levels within the range of 0.000 – 0.400% with an accuracy level of ±0.005%BAC at 0.05%BAC.
Exclusive to the Alcoscan ALC-1 is the ability to replace the on-board sensor module. Other breathalyzers routinely need to be sent to a specialized facility for re-calibration. This device is the only of its kind to be built with the ability to remove and replace the module yourself. The typical lifespan of the sensor module is roughly 1,000 uses, at which point you’d pop it out and install a new, pre-calibrated one, saving both time and money.
The Alcoscan ALC-1 includes a built-in mouthpiece, but also supports disposable varieties should you prefer. Test results are available within a matter of seconds and are displayed in a large, easily readable output on the backlit LED display. Certified by the FDA, CE, DOT, and Australian Standards Association, the Alcoscan ALC-1 puts the power of larger and more expensive breathalyzers in the palm of your hand.
- The only Fuel Cell sensor module type breathalyzer in the market that uses replaceable sensor module. Which means you do not need to send the alcohol tester to a lab for re-calibration, instead, simply purchase a pre-calibrated replacement sensor module and replace the existing sensor module — its extremely easy to replace the sensor module, simply take out the existing one and put in the new one.
- Comes with a built-in mouth piece. If you do not want to use a disposable mouthpiece, you can simply use the built in mouthpiece, just push the hook at the top of the breathalyze and the built-in mouthpiece will be ready to use.
- Can use up to 1,000 times before you need to replace the sensor module.
