EN Approved Breathalyzer Launched

20 October 2017 | Updated 01 January 1970

Alcohol safety and training specialist AlcoDigital, which works with dozens of companies across the UK addressing their alcohol and drug testing procedures and policies, has launched an EN approved breathalyzer market.

The AlcoDigital EON costs £474. It is said to be simple to use and features a highly accurate police-grade sensor that can provide a high volume of screening tests and precise on-the-spot evidential results.

The breathalyzer also offers a replaceable fuel sensor system – a first for EN approved devices. This technology offers users the added benefit of a sensor they can replace themselves, negating the need for the breathalyzer to be sent for calibration, ultimately saving companies time and money.

Ideal for checking employees following a previous positive result from a screening test, or in the event of an accident, the AlcoDigital EON offers a test-memory of 500 results and a Bluetooth print facility for recording results.

A handy app links directly to the device enabling the tester to take images of the individual being tested to provide additional evidential proof.

Suzannah Robin, an alcohol and drug safety expert at AlcoDigital said: “Companies operating in the UK could face hefty fines and reputational damage if they are found guilty of breaching health and safety regulations where they are shown to be negligent

"in ensuring their employees are fit to work and able to carry out their jobs safely. This includes anyone who is under the influence of alcohol. Our new breathalyzer will provide employers with instant, reliable and trustworthy results that are both cost-effective and highly accurate.”
