Landscape Study Looks at Mobile Evidential Breath Alcohol Instruments

A new report was recently released that provides a landscape of select mobile evidential breath alcohol instruments and factors impacting their implementation and use.

Published by the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence, the landscape study provides a history of blood and breath alcohol testing; current technology for testing breath alcohol (primarily electrochemical fuel cell and infrared spectrometry); and their use specifically in a law enforcement setting. It covers training, maintenance and calibration, implementation considerations, and includes user profiles describing successful implementation of these instruments.
