A breath test for detection of relative Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)
For the most accurate results wait 15 minutes after your last drink.
If you are unable to wait, rinse your mouth with water before taking the test.
Squeeze the middle of the tube between your thumb and finger until you feel the inner casing snap.
Hold the tube vertically. Take a deep breath and blow firmly into the tube for a minimum of 12 seconds. Wait 4 minutes
On a hard flat surface tap the tube 3 times until the powder drops to the bottom of the tube.
Compare the test against our colour scale. You are over the limit if most of the powder turns light aqua (Green/Blue) (Blue/Green). You are under the limit if the powder remains yellow or a slightly paler yellow compared to an unused tube.
The breath alcohol detector packaging can be personalized to your branding, with full colour logo in the title area of the label.
The product comes either boxed in a open and display style box with 20 products or in a display A3 poster with 15 products attached and easy to pick up.

You can also experience blurred and double vision, which affects your ability to see things clearly while you are driving. And you’re more likely to take potentially dangerous risks because you can act on urges you normally repress.
Anyone caught over the legal alcohol limit when driving will be banned from driving for at least 12 months, and fined up to £5,000. You can also be given between three to 11 penalty driving points. And you could be sent to prison for up to six months. Imprisonment, the period of disqualification, size of fine and penalty points depend on the seriousness of the offence.
If you’re caught drink driving more than once in a 10 year period, you’ll be banned for at least three years.
