The AlcoMate Premium 7000 breath alcohol tester is a simple 1-button operation that requires no calibration service to use. The PRISM Calibration Sensor is easily replaceable and features automatic power-down functionality. This breathalyzer combines advanced PRISM Sensor Technology, professional accuracy, and modern design into a convenient, easy-to-use device. The AlcoMate digital breath alcohol tester is suitable for health and law enforcement professionals, as well as prosumers seeking a top-notch product.
PRISM Sensor Technology: PRISM (Pre-calibrated Replaceable Intelligent Sensor Module) Technology provides you with the most advanced, accurate and convenient breath testing system available. Mail-back calibration is cyclically required of all traditional breathalyzers in order to maintain accuracy, and even then the service cannot address residue build up or physical wear. PRISM Technology eliminates these problems and ensures that your breathalyzer is always optimized for accuracy and reliability.
IMPORTANT: The only legal valid measure of BAC (percent Blood Alcohol Concentration) is obtained by blood testing or another evidential method of measurement. This device is for screening purposes only and should be used as a monitoring guide only. This device must be used strictly in accordance with the instructions provided with the product.
What is BAC?BAC Stands for Blood Alcohol Concentration and is a percent (%) measure of alcohol in the blood; it is also correct to use g/dL (grams per deciliter) as a more formal unit of measurement instead of %BAC .A breathalyzer is able to calculate this percentage using only a breath sample because of the precise relationship between alcohol in the blood and alcohol metabolized into the lungs from the bloodstream. This is also why it is important to make sure the mouth is clear of contaminant (including alcohol) so that the breath sample contains pure lung air, or as close as possible.
What is the BAC limit where I live? The BAC legal limit for all states in the US for DUI/DWI is currently set at 0.08%. For licensed drivers under the age of 21, there is a Zero Tolerance policy in most jurisdictions, with a limit of 0.01% or 0.02%
I think my breathalyzer is not showing a correct reading. Please wait at least 20 minutes after eating, drinking or smoking before performing a breath alcohol test. It is important that you breath sample contain ONLY lung air (see What is BAC? above). Remember that a breathalyzer analyzes the alcohol concentration in your lungs. If you have alcohol in your mouth, test results may be dramatically affected. Common household products like mouthwash or breath spray often contain alcohol that may cause a high reading on a breathalyzer. If you have owned your device for at least 6 months and/or performed up to 200 tests on the device, it may be in need of sensor replacement.
