FC5 Passive Breath Alcohol Tester

In every way superior to traditional passive alcohol devices.

Lifeloc Technologies, a global leader in mobile breath alcohol testing devices, today announced the launch of a new generation Passive Alcohol Screener. The FC5 Hornet. The new breath alcohol screener replaces old technology alcohol wands widely used for "zero tolerance" testing and "admissions screening" by schools, corrections, law enforcement and for workplace testing.

Kelly Silverman, Director of Product Development at Lifeloc, commented, "In every way the FC5 Hornet surpasses the performance of competitor's alcohol wands. Traditional alcohol devices can be bulky, noisy and have lengthy test and recovery times. The FC5 Hornet is easily carried and concealed. Results are fast and clearly visible on the backlit day/night LCD. For operator control and safety, breath test results are not displayed to the test subject. No mouthpieces or sampling cups are required."

The FC5 Hornet is designed for automatic or manual alcohol screening. In auto mode the subject blows onto the collector cone and a POS (alcohol detected) or NEG (no alcohol) result appears almost instantly. Perfect for rapid screening of large groups. When testing ambient air or open drink containers, the manual mode will allow the operator to trigger the test when desired.

Multiple test modes provide users the ultimate control and flexibility in any alcohol screening situation. Fully icon driven, the FC5 provides users with easy to understand prompts. The FC5 Hornet is available now from Lifeloc Technologies and our domestic and international distribution partners. For more information visit us at
