AL7000 (Replaceable Sensor) AlcoDigital LifeGuard AlcoDigital 3000 Lifeloc FC20

This is a low-cost semi conductor device that has a sensor that can be replaced by the user instead of being calibrated in our workshops.  This significantly reduces costs, but since the user has no way of testing the unit with the sensor "in situ", it is absolutely vital that this device is used with the backup of a certified device. Supplied with one sensor fitted, and one spare sensor for replacement as needed.

The AlcoDigital LifeGuard is a top quality personal breathalyser made by Lifeloc in the USA.  Using a high quality Platinum Fuel Cell ensures far better accuracy than a semi-conductor and it represents excellent value for money.

Made by Lifeloc, who supply certified units to many of the US Police forces and are one of the worlds' top breathalyzer manufacturers.

The AlcoDigital 3000 is the best personal breathalyzer you can buy.  Made for AlcoDigital by Draeger, and based on the 6510 used by the UK Police, it is the most accurate and consistent non-certified device available.

While it cannot be defended in court in the same way as a certified device, it is an excellent screener as it avoids the false-positive issues that semi-conductor models face.

The FC20 Alcohol Testing Kit offers the Lifeloc FC20 Breathalyser paired with the convenience of the Lifeloc thermal printer, providing hard copy printouts of test data results.

Conveniently packaged in its own rugged carrying case, the FC20 Kit provides true portability and while not UK certified, in the USA it is a fully certified EBT in use with several Police forces.

What you should know before purchasing a non-certified device for use when testing someone else
When you are testing someone other than yourself, it's vital to ensure you use a device that is fit-for-purpose.  The Draeger 6510, as used by the UK Police, is in fact the entry-level certified breathalyzer in terms of price but the Home Office Certification ensures not only accuracy but the ability to detect the difference between alcohol and substances such as ketones. 

Screening kits such as these are designed to complement, not replace, the use of a properly designed and certified breathalyzer by enabling larger scale sampling of a wider number of people at a lower cost.  In the event the screener produces a positive test, that person would be re-tested on the certified device to confirm the actual impairment level before any action is taken.

Typically, devices designed for testing yourself will over-read, sometimes substantially.   For a personal user testing themselves this is a good thing as it errs on the side of caution but when you are testing someone else this could easily lead to false accusations of impairment - unfair to the testee, and costly to you.  This problem can only be eliminated by the use of an alternative testing method in the event of a positive test.

They are also designed on the assumption that the person being tested does not necessarily want to give a full breath sample - unlike personal devices, that assume the person using it will do everything they can to ensure reliable and consistent breath samples (on the basis that they own the device themselves) and as such will often not pickup lower levels of alcohol - which may still be over the 9µg zero-impairment limit and therefore affect the persons judgment and motor skills.
