At this time of year we are often asked for advice from customers purchasing for presents.
Everyone is looking for the holy grail of low cost and high accuracy in an easy to use sub £30 breathalyser.
We suggest a good compromise digital breathalyser for personal use is the AL2500 and AL2500 prime breathalyser models. These 2 breathalysers look identical apart from the silver finish on the AL2500 and black finish on the prime. Internally they are slightly different with greater flow checking built into the AL2500 prime breathalyser version.
They are the size and shape of mobile phones, take standard AA batteries and will give 300-700 tests before the accuracy of the calibration goes. The Al2500 units are not designed to have sensor changes, so in most cases they should be used and replaced as a consumable breath tester. (the cost of breathalyser calibration service for the Al2500 at an approved service centre exceeds the purchase costs)
The Al2500 breathalysers come nicely boxed and presented with batteries and user guides, are easy to wrap and make an ideal low cost breathalyser for personal use. Accuracy is +/-0.01%BAC under control testing, but the lack of a sealed tube sample system does reduce the overall accuracy slightly in the field. With an audible alarm set at 0.05%BAC (UK prosecution noral vehicle is currently 0.08%BAC (date 10.12.08)) both of the AL2500 breathalysers offer excellent value for money.

Cocaine drug testing kits
The government yesterday launched a new anti Cocaine ad campain warning youngsters about the risks of Cocaine use and Cocaine addiction.
The 1 million pound campaign which will appear on television and the internet is to highlight the dangers posed by Cocaine to the users health & personality as well as the social costs of Cocaine use and Cocaine addiction.
Cocaine a class A drug was once only popular in fashionable London society, but has now gained in popularity across the whole country and across all social groups.
The campaign has been launched by TalktoFrank, the government funded campaign which provides young people and their families with information & advice about drugs.
Dawn Primarolo, the Health Minister, said: There is a darker side to using cocaine which this campaign exposes. Addiction, personality change and the risk of heart attacks even at a young age can ruin the health and lives of cocaine users and their families.
