* These tests visually simulate a .02%, .05%. and .08% blood alcohol level concentration. .08% represents the legal cutoff limit for determining intoxication in the State of California. Statutes vary so we recommend checking specific state laws where applicable with regard to legal limits established in that state.
The following chart shows the effects of alcohol consumption on BAC and is provided as a example of when caution should be exercised prior to driving a motor vehicle or operating heavy equipment:
ORDERING AND AVAILABILITY
Availability... Three tests are presently available. The .02%, .05% and the .08% test. A blue color cast will indicate that blood alcohol levels of .02%, .05%, and .08% respectively, have been reached. Obviously, the lower the sensitivity of the test the higher the detection rate of even small amounts of alcohol present. Each test is designed with different sensitivity cutoff levels to meet specific needs. The .02% tester is ideal for zero tolerance testing. Individuals concerned with alcohol consumption may want to consider the .02% or .05% test as they indicate alcohol consumption has occurred but not to the legal level of intoxication while others may only want to test at .08% sensitivity levels to see if they are over the legal limit or "legally intoxicated". Each BreathScan® Alcohol Tester comes individually sealed in a poly bag with complete testing instructions. An assortment pack is available which combines three test sensitivities; .02%, .05% and .08%. This pack offers the flexibility and option of "level testing" in situations where a more quantitative result is desired.
