Breathalyzers

AlcoWise is the authorized distributor of the Alcohawk®  PT500 fuel cell breathalyzer in Ontario. 

There are many types and brands of handheld breathalyzers on the market.   Prices range from $20 to $900.  Many Internet companies lead consumers to believe that their inexpensive breathalyzers are accurate and reliable.  After selling and servicing a variety of breathalyzers over the past 15 years it has become clear to us that many breathalyzers sold on the internet are not as reliable as they claim to be. 

Their are two main types of sensor technology used in handheld breathalyzer units.  Ones that utilize semi conductor sensor technology and ones that use fuel cell technology.

Breathalyzers that use semi conductor technology that sell for under $150, are useful as a general screening device where accuracy is not important. These types of breathalyzers should not be used to decide if you are under the legal limit to drive or in work place settings where accuracy is crucial. 

Breathalyzers that use semi conductor technology are easily thrown out of calibration if used improperly which could result in false high or low readings.  As well, only fuel cell technology can produce consistent results when used repeatedly.  Is it worth the $50 to $75 in savings when purchasing a cheaper breathalyzer when you consider the consequences of a false reading or the $40-$50 cost of having to send the unit in for calibration after just a few uses?

That is why Alcowise only sells one type of breathalyzer, the Alcohawk PT500 fuel cell breathalyzer. 

Since it was introduced by Q3 Innovations in 2008 the PT500 has proven to be extremely accurate, durable and reliable.  It's fuel cell technology is similar to the technology in the roadside units used by Police Forces in Canada.  This means that the PT500 is just as accurate as the units the Police use to identify impaired drivers.  Historically, prices for handheld units with fuel cell technology were in the $400-$900 range.   Q3 Innovations has made the accuracy and reliability of fuel cell technology available for $200.

The PT 500 fuel cell breathalyzer only needs to be calibrated every 200 uses or 12 months which ever comes first.  

If you are looking for an accurate, dependable and affordable portable breathalyzer to identify when you at a zero Blood Alcohol Concentration or under the "legal limit" to drive the PT500 is the breathalyzer for you.

We warranty, service and calibrate the units that we sell.
