Hey there, folks! 🌟 Ever wondered about the ins and outs of breathalysers? Well, you're in luck because we're diving into the nitty-gritty details today!

You see, breathalysers aren't just gadgets for cops and health pros anymore. Nope, they're becoming more common in everyday life, whether you're checking your BAC after a night out or ensuring workplace safety.

But hey, not all breathalysers are created equal, right? There's a whole bunch of factors that affect their accuracy, and we're here to break it down for you:

1. Sensors, Sensors, Sensors: So, you've got your fuel cell and semiconductor breathalysers. The fuel cell ones are like the gold standard - super accurate and fancy with platinum electrodes and all. Our Andatech and AlcoSense breathalysers? Yep, they're all about that Fuel Cell goodness.

2. Watch Out for Foreign Substances: Turns out, some everyday stuff like mouthwash or cough syrup can mess with breathalyser readings. Who knew? Best to steer clear of anything boozy before taking a test.

3. Blame It on the Environment: For semiconductor one, environmental conditions like humidity and air contaminants can throw off readings. So, if your breathalyser's acting wonky, it might be the weather's fault! or spend little extra to get a AlcoSeense fuel-cell type. 

4. Health Matters: Acid reflux, diabetes, you name it - certain health conditions can mess with breathalyser results especially the old semiconductor model. And don't even get us started on medications with alcohol. Yikes!

5. User Error: Yep, sometimes it's just us humans messing things up. Always follow the instructions and make sure your breathalyser's clean and dry for accurate readings.  Make sure you wait 20 minutes after the last 

6. Take Care of Your Gear: Like any gadget, your breathalyser needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care). Accidents happen, but proper care and maintenance can keep it ticking for the long haul.

7. Calibration Is Key: Ah, calibration - the unsung hero of breathalyser accuracy. Keep that baby calibrated regularly, and you'll never have to doubt your readings again!

So there you have it, folks - the lowdown on breathalysers and what makes them tick. Got any burning questions or want to check out our awesome collection of breathalysers? Head over to our website and let's keep the convo going!
