Analytical SystemElectrochemical Sensor (Fuel Cell)Select sensor, manufactured to Intoximeters exacting specifications for accuracy, repeatability and long life.
Measurement Range0.000 to 0.440 g/210LThe off the shelf instrument is designed to offer a range of results that our customers commonly encounter when performing breath alcohol testing.  Custom ranges, and results reported in most units of measure are available upon request.
Accuracy and PrecisionHighly accurate and precise evidential grade resultsIntoximeters fuel cell based instruments set the industry standard for accuracy and precision.  These precise and linear devices offer consistent output that results in evidentiary grade analysis.
Sensor SelectivityHighly specific for alcoholFuel Cell sensors are sought after for their specificity to alcohol.
Sampling MethodFlow, Volume, Breath DropInstruments running the standard software require a consistent flow, a minimum volume and then a drop in flow before sampling a deep lung breath.  Alternate sample capture algorithms are available in customized programs.
