New breathalyzer with fuel-cell precision decreases time, risk

AK GlobalTech has recently unveiled their newest product in their breathalyzer line, the AlcoMate Revo.

The AlcoMate Revo offers a patented pre-calibrated replaceable intelligent sensor module using PRISM technology, which allows the officer to change the breathalyzer’s sensor on their own when needed.

This means officers can eliminate the potential for downtime without the product, the need to mail it back and forth for calibration service, and the risk of gradual sensor breakdown.

According to the company, the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps are using AlcoMate with PRISM technology to assist with their personnel-wide alcohol testing policy.

It’s been approved for LE use by the Department of Transportation with an accuracy rating of  +/-0.005 at 0.10 g/dL.

Features of the AlcoMate include a fuel-cell sensor for maximum precision, a four-digit LCD results display, an active pressure sensor/deep lung air sampling, a cumulative test counter, and a low battery indicator and automatic power off.

The AlcoMate Revo includes a carrying case made of a reinforced polymer shell and padded interior, two AAA batteries, five mouthpieces, and an installed fuel-cell PRISM sensor module. 

The AlcoMate Revo retails for $249.95, and its replacement fuel-cell sensor modules are sold separately for $89.95. For more information, visit http://alcomate.net.
