BACtrack Select S80 Pro Breathalyzer

BACtrack Select S80 breathalyzerThe Select S80 Pro, released in 2009, is one of the newest and most accurate 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 BACtrack S80 is a professional breathalyzer that quickly estimates blood alcohol content (BAC). The S80 is the perfect choice for law enforcement, hospitals, clinics, businesses, and for personal use anytime fuel cell accuracy is required.

The advantages of the S80’s Xtend Fuel Cell Technology are numerous. First, the S80 provides 4-digit test results that can pick up trace amounts of alcohol – for example, 0.002% BAC. This is helpful in zero-tolerance environments where subjects may have had only a small amount of alcohol. Next, the Xtend fuel cell technology extends the range of accuracy all the way from 0.000 – 0.400.

Because the S80 shows a linear response to measured alcohol, the S80 will provide more accurate results over the complete range of alcohol concentrations. The benefit of the S80’s Xtend technology also applies to the life of the sensor. The S80 has an extended sensor life as compared to standard semiconductor-based breathalyzers, and will require less frequent service and maintenance. Finally, the Xtend technology also extends the useable battery life up to 1,500 tests per set of AA batteries!

The S80’s Xtend sensor technology is unlike any other available, and is worth the upgrade. Don’t purchase a novelty breathalyzer that may not provide trusted results. Go with what the Pros use. The BACtrack Select S80 has been tested by the DOT/NHTSA and meets their requirements for a breath alcohol screening device. The S80 is also FDA 510(k) cleared for personal use.

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

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

Here is what the company says about them:

BACtrack’s patent-pending BluFire technology combines an advanced software algorithm with a patented air-intake design. This technology provides accurate and trusted results suitable for professional alcohol testing applications.

The Select Series uses ActiveSensor technology to quickly estimate blood alcohol content.

The BACtrack breathalyzer incorporates a number of features to maximize the accuracy of every test. Each test requires a deep lung air sample, helping to ensure that your breath sample reflects your true blood alcohol content. If an insufficient sample is blown, the Inverse LCD display clearly notifies the user to perform another test. These features make the BACtrack an excellent choice for professional groups needing to screen for the presence of alcohol.

Even the BACtrack's unique user operation helps to provide extremely consistent test results. By exhaling with the mouth open from one half inch away, users create a steady and repeatable air sample that can be quickly analyzed by the BACtrack's BluFire Sensor Technology.

Although the BACtrack packs this professional power, it was also designed for easy consumer use. It NEVER requires individual mouthpieces to be inserted, touched, or replaced. This keeps users from accidentally sharing saliva on the same mouthpiece. It is also a huge cost savings as there are never mouthpieces to purchase and replace.

And of course, the BACtrack has that instant 'wow' factor. The unique BluFire light tubes attract attention and makes everyone want to test their alcohol level.

The S80 is so new, as of this writing, that I have been unable to find any independent reviews of it in the media. However, its sister product, the BACtrack B70, has been extensively featured, and you can find numerous links to reviews, articles and other reports at the website.
