The Platinum requires no annual calibration and you can replace the fuel cell sensor yourself – just like a battery. Just order the swap and go replacement sensor from us and replace the sensor every 12 months or 500 tests (whichever comes first). Other breathalysers require a regular calibration at our workshop but with a swap & go breathalyser, no calibration = no days without your breathalyzer. At under £200, the Platinum is the cheapest fuel cell breathalyser in our swap and go range and provides the best technology at an affordable price.
The AlcoDigital Platinum reads in milligrams per litre (mg/L) of breath and provides measurements up to 2.00mg/L. The English and Welsh drink drive limit is 0.35mg/L and the Scottish drink drive limit is 0.22 mg/L.

Swap & Go Fuel Cell Sensor
The complex nature of the fuel cell has meant it has taken Sentech, one of the Worlds’ foremost breathalyzer manufacturers, several years to miniaturise and perfect – but with the AlcoDigital Platinum they have succeeded. The single replaceable sensor cartridge contains all the elements necessary for accurate testing to as little as 0.005% BAC – far beyond the performance of semi-conductor models.
Fuel cell sensors are much larger than semi-conductor sensors. The larger the sensor, the better it can produce the electrical current needed to detect levels of alcohol – giving more reliable and consistent results. You will also find that fuel cell sensors are more durable, so they can be used frequently whilst maintaining their high levels of accuracy.
To get the most accurate reading, you must wait at least 20 minutes after consuming any alcohol, food or smoking to conduct a breathalyser test. This will also help with the longevity of the unit.
Easy to use
The AlcoDigital Platinum breathalyzer has a compact design and is easy to use, with a simple one button operation. Turn the breathalyser on and it will momentarily warm up. When ‘blow’ is displayed, it is ready for a breath test. Simply blow into the breathalyser with a continuous flow and the bright LED display show the breath test result in mg/L.
You can use this result to determine whether or not you are over the legal drink drive limit or not, however the only safe level to drive at is ZERO.
The AlcoDigital Platinum breathalyzer comes with 5 mouthpieces. Without a mouthpiece you won’t always be able to provide a steady flow into the breathalyzer; mouthpieces help direct the breath content over the sensor to produce a more accurate and consistent result.
