HOW DOES AN
ALCOHOL TEST WORK? Our Suresign Alcohol Screening Test
rapidly detects the presence of alcohol in the exhaled breath. If
alcohol is present in the exhaled breath, it reacts with the chemically
coated crystals and produces a colour change. The test provides
relative Blood Alcohol concentration at 0.05%.
WHEN SHOULD YOU
USE AN ALCOHOL SCREENING TEST? How long after alcohol consumption
can I use the test? You should wait 15 minutes after
your last alcohol consumption, or drink a glass of water before taking
the test. When should I
test? You can take the test before
driving, operating machinery or any other task where the presence of
alcohol may be detrimental.
Please note - all alcohol screening
test results are advisory only as incorrect use can cause erroneous
results. Users must use their judgment, taking into account
available information, including the amount of alcohol consumed and the
time lapsed since consumption, as to whether they are capable of
driving or carrying out dangerous tasks.
HOW TO USE THE
Remove the detector from the sealed pouch by tearing at the pre-cut
mark. Do not touch the mouthpiece to avoid any contamination. 2.
Hold the middle of the detector using your left and right index finger
and thumb. 3.
Firmly squeeze the detector to break the inner glass tube containing
the yellow crystals. Do not crush or bend the detector. 4.
Hold the middle of the detector horizontally, take a deep breath and
blow hard into the mouthpiece of the detector in one continuous breath
for 12 seconds. 5.
Shake the detector slightly to distribute the crystals evenly in the
HOW TO READ THE
ALCOHOL SCREENING TEST RESULTS?
Read results after 2 minutes by
identifying the colour of the crystals to determine the relative Blood
Alcohol Concentration (BAC). Do not read results after 5 minutes. Positive Majority of the crystals are green
and/or blue in the Test Window. It indicates the relative Blood
Alcohol Concentration is equivalent of above 0.5% Negative Majority of the crystals are yellow
or light yellow in the Test Window. It indicates that the
relative Blood Alcohol Concentration is less than 0.5%. Invalid Majority of the crystals are light
yellow but a slight green and/or blue colour appears in the Test
Window. Repeat the test with a new detector, ensuring that a deep
and exhaled breath is blown into the detector. If the problem
persists, discontinue using the test immediately and consult your local
