The AlcoBlow® breathalyzer is the perfect alcohol detector in scenarios where multiple people have to be quickly checked for alcohol levels in the breath. This can include police roadblocks, educational institutions or safety-critical industrial environments.
In Active mode, the subject blows into the sampling cone until the instrument collects a sample for alcohol analysis. Within seconds, a colored light with a beep tone appears to indicate whether or not the sample contained alcohol. The system then clears itself, and it is ready to test the next individual within seconds. This process is completely automatic and requires no button clicks or resetting between testing multiple people.
In Passive mode, the operator presses the Passive button to collect a sample of breath from the subject’s surroundings, ideally while they are speaking. Again, the display system immediately determines whether or not the patient has alcohol in their system. This Passive mode is also perfect for testing the air above fluids to see if it contains alcohol.
