Lifeloc Technologies Releases New Research On The Accuracy Of Personal Breathalyzers
A new study reveals popular consumer breathalyzers using semiconductor alcohol sensing technology to be inaccurate and inconcsistent in breath alcohol content measurement
Lifeloc Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of professional breathalyzers has released the industry's first independent report on the accuracy and reliability of popular semiconductor (silicone oxide) breath testers sold in mass retail, pharmacy, specialty stores and on the Internet.
The report also exposes questionable marketing practices of consumer breathalyzer distributors and retailers whose advertising claims suggest a high level of BAC measurement accuracy that is not supported by the test results.
"This report should serve as a warning to consumers to avoid semiconductor breath testers if they want accurate BAC measurement. It's also an invitation to retailers to take more responsibility in how they market personal breathalyzers," said Knott. "Consumer and public safety is not being well served by misleading product claims."
