Alcosense launches sub-£100 breathalyser with new sensor

Alcosense has launched its new Excel breathalyser using a smaller 64mm2 version of the 200mm2 sensor it uses in its Police-approved breathalysers.

In addition to giving detailed readings to two decimal places in either blood or breath alcohol concentrations, the AlcoSense Excel will alert you when you are close to or over your set limit.

It is compatible with any limit worldwide and can be changed between limits.

"But it’s not just about being under or over the limit. Studies show that if you drive while having only one-eighth of the English drink drive limit in your system (one fifth of the Scottish limit), you are 37% more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than when sober*,” said Hunter Abbott, MD of AlcoSense. 

"The only way to tell when you’re safe to drive the morning after the night before is either to abstain completely from drinking alcohol or to use an accurate personal breathalyser. The AlcoSense Excel gives detailed readings all the way up through the range so you can tell exactly when you are clear”.

AlcoSense Excel’s unique slide mechanism keeps the sensor and blow tube receptacle covered when not in use - stopping dust or contaminants from entering the unit.
