Essential Info

The AlcoMate® AccuCell AL9000 Breathalyzer is a lightweight and portable alcohol detector that uses the new fuel cell technology for maximum accuracy. It is perhaps the easiest to use fuel cell based alcohol breathalyzer machine on the market today. Many alcohol testers work by using a silicon oxide chip to detect and measure alcohol concentrations. These designs are more error prone and subject to contamination problems. The advanced fuel cell technology of the AccuCell AL9000 requires fewer re-calibrations and is more accurate. The AL9000 can also handle high volume testing without a problem. The AccuCell was designed with the professional tester in mind with such features as a USB connection to allow the export of data to a computer in Excel format for analysis. At the current time the software supports Windows XP, VISTA and Windows 7. The AlcoMate AccuCell gives an accurate reading of blood alcohol concentration and has a rapid response time. Professionals such as law enforcement personnel, hospitals or businesses can rely on the AL9000 when fuel cell accuracy is needed.

More Info

Fuel cell technology is one of the most advanced methods for determining levels of intoxication. The fuel cell breathalyzer is considered the "gold standard" for portable breathalyzer testing. This is the type of device preferred by law enforcement and other professionals that require maximum accuracy. Most consumer breathalyzers use semiconductor-based designs for detecting and measuring alcohol in a subject’s breath. This technique is less accurate and is subject to contamination and false positives. A fuel cell measures alcohol content by catalyzing a chemical reaction with platinum metal. In this reaction, the ethanol present in the subject's breath is oxidized to acetic acid at the anode and the overall reaction produces acetic acid and water as well as creating an electric current. This current is measured and used to calculate the level of blood alcohol. Fuel Cell breathalyzers are more specific for ethyl alcohol and less prone to false readings from substances such as ketones that are similar in chemical structure to alcohol. Therefore, they are accurate and very stable. Advances in manufacturing have led to a dramatic decrease in the price of fuel cell technology. Consumers now have access to the same high quality technology as law enforcement professionals for personal alcohol testing. Prices for this line of alcohol testers has dropped to nearly one-third what it was a year ago.

STEPHEN C. -- freeport, NY   12/19/2013
Performs exactly as represented. I would not go to any function where social drinking is occurring without it. With it, you know for sure when you are safe to drive!
JOHN -- manassas, VA   7/14/2013
Easy to use, received it within 2 days of ordering it.
STEVE -- plymouth, NH   3/31/2013
As described, works fine, quick ship.
MATTHEW -- columbia, SC   7/16/2012
Works great now, took several days to get it a reading, but now I get a reading every time.
ELIZABETH S -- virginia beach, VA   6/8/2012
Accurate and easy to use. Wish it was a little more budget-friendly but peace of mind is worth the hefty price tag.
CHRISTOPHER -- grafton, MA   4/25/2012
Works very well, very repeatable and easy to use. Very slim and easy to carry, high quality.
RUSSELL -- saint charles, MO   3/4/2012
I was not happy with this product. I had to return the first one I bought because it did not work at all. The second one I bought did not work correctly when tested against a Police unit. It read significantly lower. I returned it too and gave up on this product.
NEAL -- pagosa springs, CO   2/7/2012
Like it. Fast. Presumably accurate. Small. Recommend!
CLARKE &BRABARA -- east dorset, VT   8/17/2011
the best!
L. -- cedar grove, IN   11/10/2010
Seems fine, though I have nothing to compare it to (but as long as I never do I'll be satisfied, I guess)
