We tested & reviewed the 0.05% breathlyzer kit from Mission (EU driving level cut off for most although not all EU countries including France) Some of the EU countries operate a zero tolerance so check with the individual country that you are travelling to.
Using the Mission disposable breathalyzer kits is very easy. They are supplied in boxes of 3, 6 or 20 single use breathalyzer kits, and each kit is sealed in a foil pouch.
The breathalyzer kits come with a very detailed set of instructions and data included, but the actual test proceedure is very simple.
Simply remove one of the breathalyzer tubes from its sealed pouch and when you are ready to test, squeeze the central clear section to break the internal crystal tube. The crystals are all a light golden yellow colour. Blow through the tube for 12 seconds, this needs a good breath in before you start.
Dont read the results straight away, the correct result is the one showing 2 minutes after you started blowing. If the result is positive and above the alcohol cut off for the test the crystals will have changed colour to a pale green/grey or blue/grey colour. The colour is not strong or dark but quite distinct from the starting golden yellow. In negative tests the crystals will remain golden yellow.
There is no colour chart provided, so we found it helpful to compare the positive results against an un-used breathalyzer test kit, but this did mean we had to open a second test to use as the comparison, but if you are doing the test regularly this will not be needed.
What we liked about the test kit:
- its very small, lightweight & discrete and would fit easily in a handbag, glove box or even your pocket
- it was very easy to use
- it came in a box of 3
- it gave a result quickly & accurately
- easily disposed of after use
