Lifeloc FC20


The Lifeloc FC 20 is the top of the range fuel cell breath alcohol tester from Lifeloc that provides accurate and reliable measurement of Breath Alcohol Content (BAC) for those concerned about alcohol intoxication in themselves or others.

Lifeloc designed and manufactures the Lifeguard FC20 breathalyser in the USA. Lifeloc breathalysers are now AS3547 certified.

Popular testing uses include workplace and personal testing for reliable and accurate results.

Lifeloc FC 20 uses full sized platinum fuel cell technology that powers this globally recognised law enforcement equipment. Lifeloc breathalysers are used in over 35 countries and by many law enforcement agencies, for very good reason - they are exceptionally reliable and accurate!

This unit is recommended for law enforcement and healthcare applications.
