BACtrack S75 Pro Breathalyzer

BACtrack S75 Pro BreathalyzerThe Select S75 Pro, released at the end of 2009, is the newest in the BACtrack series of breathalyzers from the leading manufacturer of these products, San Francisco company KHN Solutions. You can read more about the Select range of breathalyzers at the BACtrack website, and there is also an introduction to KHN.

According to a product description:

The new 2010 BACtrack S75 Pro is the most affordable BACtrack fuel-cell model ever available! [It] is a stunning combination of accuracy, affordability, and style. The S75 has been designed to reduce unnecessary size and weight, while maintaining all the accuracy benefits of a full-sized fuel-cell-based breathalyzer. And because it is priced at a groundbreaking $149.99 and has obtained FDA 510(k) clearance, this professional technology is now directly available for both consumer and professional use.

...The BACtrack S75 Pro employs highly-accurate Xtend fuel cell sensor technology, which allows it to be used for professional and medical testing applications. When accuracy is key, count on the S75 Pro's Xtend Fuel Cell Sensor technology for the following benefits:

* It will not show a false positive for someone who is diabetic or on a low calorie diet. Other semiconductor breathalyzer models will sometimes show a false positive result for these individuals.

* It provides more accurate and more consistent results as compared with semi-conductor models. For example, with the S75 Pro, you are more likely to show the same test result when you test someone repeatedly in a very short period of time.

* It can remain accurate for up to thousands of tests.

* It is more accurate at higher BAC concentrations. For example, if someone is very intoxicated, say 0.22 %BAC, the S75 Pro is more likely to provide an accurate test result as compared to semiconductor models, which often lose accuracy at higher BAC values. This is called linearity of response.

Like the BACtrack S80 Pro, the S75 Pro also uses a miniature air pump inside the product to more accurately collect a breath sample. During use, you can actually feel the "click" of the pump collecting the breath sample.

The fast-expanding BACtrack range now includes the following breathalyzers, in ascending order of list price (from $69.99 to $249.99):

* Select S30
* Select S50
* B70
* Select S70
* S75 Pro
* Select S80 Pro

The TrulyObscure website gave the S75 a glowing review:

Accuracy is probably the most important aspect of a breathalyzer test and this device is not a let down. It is equipped with Xtend™ Fuel Cell Sensor Technology so you receive no false positives due to, say, diabetes or your diet. We liked that it operates on 2 AA batteries, helpfully included, and can last for up to 1,500 blows on a pair - plenty of power for even the most ardent beer hounds among us.

...Weighing less than 5 ounces, the portability of this product is great for both men and women and fits comfortably into the palm of your hand (as well as in a purse or your glove compartment). Your blood alcohol content level is displayed within ten seconds of blowing into the device, though there is a warm up time of ten to twenty seconds.

...What really makes this product worthwhile is the mouthpieces are easy to use, washable, and best of all, reusable. Six mouthpieces come with the device and if you find yourself needing more refills you can purchase a refill pack of 50.

The Atlanta Gadgets Examiner also tested the S75:

The BACTrack S75 Pro is the first affordable portable breathalyzer that utilizes a electro-chemical fuel cell sensor to provide quick and very accurate results. The majority of police BAC measuring devices rely on fuel cell sensors as well.

...The BACTrack S75 Pro retails for $149.99, while the S30 can be purchased for $49.99. The devices range from $49.99 for the lower end devices and around $200 for the top end professional series. Personally, I think the S75 Pro is the best choice, and is a LOT cheaper than a DUI!

An amusing hands-on test of the S75 is here, and you will find links to further reviews and videos at the Breathalyzer.net website. You can also find a review of the BACtrack S75 breathalyzer at my new website.
