Description / Features / Spec


Drager 5820 Alcotest Kit

The Drager Alcotest 5820 is a professional breathalyser which carries out breath alcohol tests quickly and efficiently.  This kit includes the Alcotest 5820 device, 3 mouthpieces, 1 battery, a hand loop and a plastic transportation case.

The device is portable and user-friendly, with an easy-to-read LED display.  The Alcotest 5820 uses Slide'n'click mouthpieces which are hygienic as they're individually sealed.  A spacer also prevents the mouth of the person being tested from coming in to contact with the Alcotest housing.

The mouthpiece can be moved to the left or the right hand side of the instrument and there's only three buttons on the interface so the Alcotest breathalyser is easy to use.  Drager's Alcotest can also measure alcohol in the ambient air (passive) without the use of a mouthpiece.
