The Dräger Alcotest 5000 digital breathalyzer is a device able to detect alcohol in exhaled air and made for professional use. Thanks to its contactless cone specially designed to minimize exhaled air return, many tests can be carried out quickly while minimizing cross infection risks on later tested subjects.
For law enforcement and private security companies, detecting alcohol consumption among many subjects in a limited time represents a major challenge: large-scale operations such as access control at workplaces, stadiums, public transport sites. Detailed description
The Däger Alcotest 5000 digital breathalyzer
With over 65 years of experience, Dräger is the international leader in the breath alcohol testing field. In many countries around the world, law enforcement officers use devices from the Alcotest range daily in the context of driving alcohol testing. Manufactured in Germany, the Alcotest 5000 is compliant with the strictest standards. The device exploits highly efficient EC sensors that guarantee precise and reliable results.
Fast and precise alcohol consumption test
The test doesn’t require any physical contact with the controlled subject. The test simply requires the subject to blow exhaled air into a cone, there’s no need to add or to remove any mouthpiece on the device. Thanks to its unique design, the cone of the Dräger Alcotest 5000 avoids any exhaled air to rise up again, thus eliminating the cross contamination risk with previous subjects. After use the cone is easy to replace to guarantee impeccable hygiene.
Maximum testing in minimum time
The Alcotest 5000 can test up to 12 subjects per minute. For law enforcement officers or private security contractors, control alcohol consumption on many subjects in a limited time is a major challenge. For example it can be necessary in high affluence operations like controlling access to the workplace, to stadiums, in public transit or in airports. In case of positive control, the exact blood alcohol rate can be given with another device that provides measurements with legal value, or use another Dräger device.
