The Alco-Sensor® VXL (ASVXL) is an advanced, handheld, microprocessor driven, breath alcohol testing instrument. The ASVXL provides a simple, economical method of determining a subject’s breath alcohol concentration with evidential grade accuracy. Additionally, the ASVXL offers the ability to perform rapid screening and passive testing of subjects or it can be utilized to perform a headspace analysis of a sample over a liquid.
The instrument’s design offers great flexibility. The Alco-Sensor® VXL can be used in a stand-alone mode and it can be interfaced with a serial printer via a printer cable. Alternatively, the ASVXL can interface through a docking station or wireless connection with multiple peripherals, including keyboards, printers, magnetic card readers, bar code readers and computers.
The Alco-Sensor® VXL was designed with operator safety in mind. Unlike other instruments available, the ASVXL's symmetric design with a rear facing display allows the operator to remain in control of the subject, view the instrument display, monitor the surrounding environment and divert the subject’s breath away from the operator during the sample collection process.
The ASVXL also offers advantages in low light operations such as an illuminated mouthpiece guide, a “lever and snap” mouthpiece insertion, side-viewable LED indicator, and multi-color back lit display messaging to warn of important test conditions.
