The Alco Screen 02 Alcohol Saliva Test is a perfect and cost-efficient testing kit for onsite testing as well as “Zero Tolerance” testing programs wherein the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) must be below 0.02% at all times.
The Alco Screen 02 was one of the very first devices approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) as an Alcohol Screening Device. DOT approval means that the Alco Screen reliably and accurately detects alcohol at the 0.02 concentration or higher, and does not give false positive readings when no alcohol is present. DOT approval permits individuals to use the Alco Screen 02 for alcohol screening tests required by the Department of Transportation regulations. Excessive consumption of alcohol is a contributory factor to many accidents, injuries and medical conditions. Screening of individuals for alcohol consumption is an important method for the identification of individuals who might be at risk due to alcohol intoxication. Blood Alcohol Contents at which individuals become impaired vary depending upon the persons parameters such as physical size, weight, activity level, eating habits and alcohol tolerance all affect the level of impairment of the individual. Testing with the Alco Screen 02 is easy and simple. Easily place the strip into your mouth and wet it for a few seconds, then wait four minutes to read the results; no need for lab analysis. Since the proportion of alcohol in saliva is directly related to that of blood, the Alco-Screen can easily and quickly detect the presence of alcohol. Intended to be sold to court systems, individuals, police departments, probation/parole offices, juvenile detention centers, prisons, jails, correction centers and other similar law enforcement entities, or to laboratories performing forensic testing.
