The AlcoScan AL5000 digital personal alcohol breath analyzer is approved by the US DOT and an alcohol screening device for personal use. The AlcoScan AL5000 breathalyzer employs semiconductor gas sensor. The AL5000 measures subject breath alcohol content within a range of 0.00% to 0.40% BAC, in .01% step increments. The AlcoScan AL5000 delivers .01% or 10% accuracy at 0.10% BAC.
The AlcoScan AL5000 was discontinued in 2008 and is no longer supported by ASD. The AlcoScan AL5000 has been replaced by the more enhanced AlcoMate Prestige AL6000.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the AlcoMate Prestige and AlcoScan AL5000 model?
The AlcoMate Prestige is the 2nd generation version of the AlcoScan AL5000. The AlcoMate Prestige has the ability to change the sensor yourself, while the AL5000 must be sent in for calibration. The Prestige also comes in a Red or Silver color choice, while the AL5000 comes only in a silver finish.
How many tests can I perform with the AlcoScan AL5000 before I have to calibrate the device
Under ideal testing conditions, the AlcoScan AL5000 should perform roughly 300 tests before needing a sensor replacement. Continuous testing with higher amounts of alcohol may potentially wear out the sensor faster.
I am trying to use my device but it displays a 6 then a backwards 6 and a half e. What does this mean?
The device is attempting to display the characters for "bat" which is the low battery indicator. Simple replace the batteries with a brand name battery and you device will perform the full test.
