AlcoScan passive electronic breath tester


Price incl. VAT, delivery included


ALCOSCAN is an easy-to-use passive breath alcohol tester with a highly sensitive electrochemical sensor. It does not require a mouthpiece or active user participation. It is able to “sniff” the environment for the presence of alcohol.



Alcoscan can be used with or without active participation from the test subject. For active use, have the test subject exhale into the inlet. For passive testing, simply hold the Alcoscan in the ambient environment, such as the interior of an automobile or over a beverage that potentially contains alcohol. The flexibility of Alcoscan makes it perfect for schools, hospitals and industrial safety applications.


One Button Operation
Whether you operate the Alcoscan with one hand, with gloves or in dark environments, you will appreciate the easy one-button operation.
Electrochemical Sensor
The latest sensing technology from Alcohol Countermeasure Systems guarantees reliable and repeatable results. The Alcoscan uses a redesigned electrochemical sensor (fuel cell) that is very resilient to drift and requires significantly less calibration than other alcohol sensing technologies.
LED Display
The Alsoscan uses a simple Green-Amber-Red display and the actual BAC values to indicate the alcohol levels. This design ensures fewer errors and eliminates the need to convert values in alternate units of measurement.
• Zero or insignificant alcohol detected (0.00 to 0.19 g/L or 0.00 to 0.019 %BAC)
• Alcohol detected in the 0.20 to 0.50 g/L (0.02 to 0.05 %BAC) range
• Alcohol detected in the 0.50 g/L (0.05 %BAC) or higher range


* All breath alcohol testing devices require periodic maintenance and calibration to ensure proper working order.
