ALCOPE / Skin Contact Breathalyzer


Nowadays, drunk driving is one of the social problems that constantly occur and has a fatal impact on human lives due to car accidents. Also with the advent of Covid-19 Pandemic, we faced the problems on field sobriety test on infection through the respiratory tracts.

In this situation, ALCOPE is a breathalyzer that can be a solution for measuring alcohol concentration(BAC) only through contacting the skin of drivers. In detail, it combines electrochemical sensors and infrared spectroscopy technology that do not utilize non-breathing and non-invasive methods to detect alcohol content in the driver's body.
