Randomized alcohol testing programs can now utilize Draeger’s law-enforcement-proven technology in plants, on jobsites and virtually anywhere companies want to ensure workers are not impaired.

The Alcotest 5820 is the latest generation of breath alcohol testing devices by Draeger. The compact, handheld instrument delivers reliable breath alcohol tests with very short response times.

The Alcotest 5820 is equipped with Draeger’s proven electrochemical sensor to test breath alcohol concentration (BrAC). The sensor offers precision, a long service life and reliable test results from 23°F to 122°F. Even with high alcohol readings, the sensor delivers fast and accurate results. In addition to the classical test method, where a person has to blow into the device, it can also be used to measure alcohol in the ambient air (passive measurement).

“For employers, the Alcotest 5820 provides a significant opportunity to increase workplace safety,” said Michael Willis, President, Draeger Safety Diagnostics, Inc. “Randomized alcohol testing programs can now utilize Draeger’s law-enforcement-proven technology in plants, on jobsites and virtually anywhere companies want to ensure workers are not impaired.”

The Alcotest 5820 was designed for ease-of-use by test administrators:

  • All measuring functions can be selected with a single button; two additional buttons are used for menu navigation
  • Easily understandable, full-text messages on the backlit display guide users reliably through alcohol tests
  • Optical and acoustic signals support user navigation
  • Hygienic “Slide ‘N’ Click” mouthpiece is easily attachable
  • Air outlets cannot be covered, preventing manipulation
  • Mouthpieces with non-return valves are also available
