Why calibrate breathysers?

All Breathalysers require checking to ensure that the calibration is always at its optimum level. This is done using either a wet bath or dry gas and the devices are calibrated to ensure that accuracy can be guaranteed for the period of use between calibrations. MEDACX supplies calibration services via its UKAS accredited ISO 17025 calibration facility, this allows us to provide a certificate of calibration compliance with every breathalyser that we supply and recalibrate.

Are all breathalysers the same why such a difference in price?

Low cost Breathalysers employ inferior measurement technology such as inferior fuel cells or semi-conductor based technology both of which have been proven not to have the accuracy or repeatiblity to pass the Home Office standards for Road side breathalyser accuracy and reliablity; and are NOT found in use in any demainding appliaction such as Police, Prisons and Workplace compliance testing. Because where you need to make decisons about a persons livelehood or wellbeing you cannot afford to inaccuracies!  The saying 'you get what you pay for' is so very true when it comes to breathalysers. So buyers should be aware that, NOT ALL breathalysers are the same!

Why use an approved and accredited Breathalyser?

Professional breathalysers such as those provided by MEDACX; the AlcoQuant and AlcoTrue ranges are fully acredited and the AcoQuant 6020 is Home Office Type Approved and in use by UK Police. They are truly professional devices with the accuracy, repeatability, quality and reliability that is expected and validated to meet the United Kingdom Home Office standards.
