The BACtrack Element Breathalyzer is BACtrack's newest fuel cell sensor breathalyzer. It uses highly accurate Xtend Fuel Cell Sensor technology to quickly and easily estimate blood alcohol content (BAC). Designed with convenience in mind, the Element is smaller and lighter than most cell phones without sacrificing performance. Thanks to its combination of convenience and precision, this breathalyzer is ideal for both professional alcohol screening and personal consumer use.
Xtend Fuel Cell Sensor Technology
The BACtrack Element employs highly accurate Xtend fuel cell sensor technology, allowing it to be used for professional, medical, and law enforcement applications. This technology provides more accurate and more consistent results as compared with semi-conductor breathalyzers. It will not show a false positive for someone who is diabetic or on a low-calorie diet. The Element can remain accurate for up to thousands of tests.
World's Smallest Full-Feature Fuel Cell Breathalyzer
The BACtrack Element was designed with size in mind. Smaller and lighter than most cell phones, the Element is easy to carry to a party, keep in the glove compartment of a car, or store anywhere space is at a premium. It is the smallest fuel cell breathalyzer in the world that uses an active internal breath pump. The sleek design is easy on the eyes, including the high-quality LCD screen that provides a bright, crisp display.
Despite its small size, the BACtrack Element packs serious technology inside its black plastic casing. There is a miniature air pump inside the Element that activates at the end of each breath sample. You can actually feel the "click" during each test. This proprietary internal sampling system ensures that a precise breath sample enters the alcohol fuel cell sensor, and is one of the reasons why the Element provides trusted, accurate results every test.
Designed for Both Professional and Personal Use
Because the Element uses Xtend Fuel Cell Technology, it is trusted as an alcohol screening device by law enforcement, militaries, hospitals, businesses, and many other professional groups. The Element has been tested by the DOT/NHTSA (Department of Transportation/National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and meets their requirements for a breath alcohol screening device. And because the Element has also received FDA 510(k) pre-marketing clearance, it is available for personal, consumer use as well. Test your own alcohol level anytime, or test friends and family at your house, at a party, or at a restaurant. It is an ideal breathalyzer for a wide range of uses.
BACtrack in The Press
When Dr. Phil McGraw, host of The Dr. Phil Show, needed breathalyzer testing for his show, he called BACtrack. Regularly seen by millions of viewers, The Dr. Phil Show provides healthy living advice in front of a live studio audience. BACtrack breathalyzers were used on multiple Dr. Phil shows where BAC testing was required. Dr. Phil has gone on record saying he is a proponent of BACtrack personal breathalyzers for reducing the incidences of intoxicated driving. Similarly, in August 2011, when The Wall Street Journal tested peoples' BAC levels after consuming alcohol, the Journal turned to BACtrack. The results were featured on the front page of the Personal Journal section. Previous BACtrack appearances have included use on MythBusters, where Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman tested alcohol myths, and on CSI: Miami, The Doctors, and Ask Oprah's All Stars.
The Element is simple to use. Insert the two AAA batteries that come with the product, and it's ready to test. When you press the start button, the BACtrack Element counts down for approximately 10 seconds, preparing the system for a breath sample. When the countdown reaches zero, blow steadily and continuously for at least 5 seconds. If a sufficient breath sample has been taken, the user's estimated BAC is displayed on the screen. If a proper air sample is not taken, the Element clearly displays a warning message, and the countdown can be restarted for a re-test. The BACtrack Element Breathalyzer is backed by a one-year warranty.
