What precautions should be taken during a subject test, cleaning, or disinfecting to protect against the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) or other pathogens?
Intoximeters, Inc. does not claim to be an expert on infectious disease transmission, but it has developed two guides (Infection Control Cleaning and Disinfecting Intoximeters Handheld Instruments and Infection Control Cleaning and Disinfecting an Intoximeters Desktop Instrument) that list some of the concerns and commonsense steps that can be taken to reduce the likelihood of disease transmission while performing a breath alcohol test or while cleaning or disinfecting an Intoximeters, Inc. alcohol breath test instrument.
Additional information and directives on Coronavirus can be found through OSHA (3990-03 2020) or the CDC. The CDC has put out documentation for the maintenance on other types of breathing related equipment such as spirometers that may have helpful information on infections control measures.
Our goal is to repair instruments in 10 working days or less. (This does not include the time it takes to ship the product to and from our loading dock). If your instrument has been at Intoximeters for an extended period of time, Contact Technical Services (800-451-8639) to get more information about the repair. Please have the instrument model, instrument serial number and customer name available for quick look up.
Generally, we fax or email you the estimate and the response can be returned by fax or email. If you wish to respond by phone, contact Customer Service through our main number (314-429-4000).
Factory Recertification is available by appointment only.

Both the instrument(s) needing repair and a copy of a completed service Return Material Authorization (RMA) form should be sent to Intoximeters. The RMA form must include a detailed description of the problem(s) you are experiencing and any other information you feel may be helpful.
To expedite the repair of your instrument, the completed service RMA form should include a Purchase Order and/or the name of the person authorizing the repair. If an instrument is received without a service RMA form, there may be a delay in initiating repairs. View the Forms & Catalogs section of our website for the correct form or you can contact Customer Service at (314) 429-4000.
You can fill out the RMA on-line, print a copy to include in the shipment, and submit it electronically to the Technical Department.
You can download an RMA form, fill it out by hand and include a copy in the shipment.
