Breathalyser Calibration

for Andatech and AlcoSense breathalysers

The calibration service is important to ensure the ongoing accuracy and reliability of your breathalyser. We recommend 6-month calibrations on our breathalysers. All our breathalysers are serviced by our in-house technicians using professional equipment.

What is Calibration?

In short, it's a process where your breathalyser has its sensor checked against a controlled solution and then 'adjusted' to read accurately again.

Calibration Frequency

We recommend calibration every 6 months to maintain their accuracy. Some personal models may require calibration sooner if they exceed 200 or 500 tests.

Calibration Process

Your breathalyser needs to come back to one of our calibration centres either by mail or a drop-off. A calibration booking must be made online or over the phone prior to you sending it back.

Calibration Cost

Calibrations start from $45 per service, excluding shipping. The calibration management plans are a cheaper option starting from $85 per year for 2 calibrations plus shipping costs.
