    Rapid Diagnostic Alcohol Tests & Alcohol Test Kits

    Test Kits for Testing Breath, Saliva or Urine Alcohol Levels in 2 minutes or less.

    In addition to our urine drug test kit range, Drug-Aware offers alcohol test kits for use on breath, saliva and urine samples. We have disposable saliva alcohol test strips, urine alcohol tests and breathalyser breath alcohol kits. We also offer 2 levels of electronic breathalyser units - one which accurately screens for alcohol in breath but is considered to be an indicator, and another which provides a fully evidential test result.

    In short, we have an alcohol screening test to suit every requirement.  Click here if you wish to buy alcohol tests online for home use, or contact us for a quotation for healthcare, corporate or high volume requirements.

    Don't risk drinking and driving!

    AlcoScreen saliva alcohol test kits - a kit which detects your blood alcohol level in just 2 minutes.

    AlcoScreen saliva alcohol test kits

     

    The Alco-Screen saliva alcohol test kits are based upon a simple test strip which indicates the level of blood alcohol present, from zero tolerance levels to several times over the UK Legal Drink Drive Limit. These are the alcohol tests most commonly used by our healthcare related customers due to their simplicity, low cost and the ability to measure blood alcohol levels. A very simple semi quantitative alcohol test kit at an economical price.

     

    AlcoCheck Breathalyzer units - A simple commercial version of the "blow in the bag" alcohol test kit used by the British Police.

    AlcoCheck breathalyser units

     

    The AlcoCheck Home Office Approved breathalyzer units are a modification of the basic roadside breath alcohol test used by the British Police Forces for several decades. It uses yellow crystals which turn green in the presence of alcohol in breath in order to test patients to a pre-determined level - the UK / USA Legal Drink Drive Limit. This is the product most frequently used by our corporate customers when carrying out pre-employment, random or accident based workplace employee drug and alcohol screening.

    Alcohol Information - Alcohol Test Kits Available:

    Although alcohol is a legal substance used by many, there is clear and undisputed evidence that it impairs the user and can often be abused or misused. Accordingly, there is a legal drink-driving limit of 80 mg/dl or 0.08% BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) enforced by law in the UK and USA.

    Alcohol is broken down by the liver at the rate of approximately one unit per hour (a pint of normal strength beer being two units). Consequently, it is possible to still be under the influence the following morning if you have drunk excessively the night before. In fact, every year in Britain over 25,000 people lose their driving licences the morning after a night's drinking.

    To exercise caution, the following calculation can be used to estimate your level of risk after having drunk the night before.


     

    1 Unit of alcohol = ½ Pint ordinary strength beer

    or...

     

    1 standard glass of table wine

    or...

     

    1 standard glass of sherry

    or...

     

    1 single measure of spirits.

     

    It is advised that you allow a minimum of 1 hour per 1 unit of alcohol before driving or operating heavy machinery or electrical equipment in order to ensure that you are not under the influence of alcohol.

    This simple formula will help:

    Number of units drunk - Number of hours since last drink = Alcohol content

    For example: A person drinks 6 pints of an ordinary strength beer (12 units) finishing drinking at 11pm. They start work at 8am the following day. (9 Hours later).

    12 Units - 9 hours = 3. In this scenario, the person could still have 3-4 units of alcohol left in their body whilst driving to work the following day - risking both Police prosecution and the safety of others. 3-4 Units will bring most people to the legal driving limit. Please exercise caution.


    Free Training in Alcohol Testing Procedures:

    Drug-Aware™ drug and alcohol test kits are very easy to use, but in any technical field there are often many surrounding issues of which to be aware. How long are different drugs and alcohol detectable? How might patients attempt to influence their test results? How can you prevent this? In our free training sessions, we cover these topics and much more to arm your team with the knowledge they need to operate a successful testing programme.

    These sessions are designed specifically to assist those carrying out alcohol screening using Drug-Aware test kits but they are different from our comprehensive drug awareness seminars or policy development seminars which are often bespoke sessions designed to suit the needs of individual organisations and include a wealth of additional useful information.  Ask us for more details!
