PAS Vr. Alcohol Screening & Verification System
A NHTSA certified alcohol screening device (ASD) featuring both passive alcohol screening (no mouthpiece needed) and direct measurements (using a mouthpiece) with the flip of a switch.
The PAS Vr is a hand-held, rapid alcohol detection and screening instrument using a platinum electrochemical fuel cell sensor of high alcohol specificity, accuracy and stability. Certified by NHTSA as an Alcohol Screening Device (ASD) when used with a mouthpiece in active/direct mode.
The PAS Vr may also be used passively (without mouthpiece) to quickly screen large numbers of subjects for the presence of breath alcohol simply by having a subject speak. The user can screen a subject in as little as 15 seconds to determine if alcohol is present on a subject's breath. The PAS Vr can also be used to screen an open container for the presence of alcohol.
