Our online shop provides several efficient alcohol tests such as: alcohol saliva tests, alcohol saliva Department of Transportation (DOT) approved tests, alcohol detectors.
As you know, a breath alcohol test is an estimate of your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at the time of the test. It is measured as a percentage (millimoles per liter (mmol/L)) of alcohol in the blood. You can measure your own breath alcohol level with a simple handheld device. The home device is similar to, though not as precise as, the type of test used by police for suspected drunk drivers. If the breath alcohol device is calibrated and used according to the manufacturer's directions, it can provide an accurate estimate of your blood alcohol level.
Within minutes of drinking alcohol, your blood alcohol concentration starts to rise. Unlike food, alcohol is absorbed directly through the walls of the stomach, goes into the bloodstream, and travels throughout your body and to the brain. This allows blood alcohol levels to increase quickly. The amount of alcohol in the blood reaches its highest level about 60 minutes after drinking. However, food in the stomach may increase the amount of time it takes for the blood alcohol to reach its highest level. Most of the alcohol is broken down in the liver. The rest of it is passed out of your body in urine and your exhaled breath.
Manual and electronic devices are available to measure the breath alcohol concentration.
* The manual device is a glass tube (or a balloon and a glass tube) containing crystals that change color when exposed to alcohol from your breath. This device is simpler and less expensive than electronic meters.
* The electronic meter shows your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) percentage in a digital display window after you blow into a glass mouthpiece attached to the meter. This type of meter is more expensive than the manual type.
Many bars and restaurants provide their customers with free alcohol breath tests using one of these two methods. The devices are also used to monitor people in an alcohol rehabilitation center or hospital.
