The Drager Alcotest 5000 is a professional breath-alcohol tester which detects the presence of alcohol. The high-speed breathalyser lets you perform numerous tests in no time. Its special funnel reduces the back-flow of expired air to a minimum, preventing the risk of infection to subsequent test subjects.

​With the Alcotest 5000, you can test up to 12 people a minute to determine whether they have consumed alcohol or not. Especially for police and private security professionals, testing large numbers of people for intoxication in a short period of time presents a major challenge: for example, during large-scale operations, entrance checks at work sites, and stadiums, entry points to public transport and airport security checks. In the case of a positive test result, exact blood-alcohol levels can be calculated if necessary using Dräger alchol screeners or court-approved evidential devices.

​The alcohol test takes place without the need for bodily contact with the test subject. There is no need to attach and detach mouthpieces, because testing requires the subjects simply to blow into a funnel. With its unique design, this special Dräger Alcotest 5000 funnel prevents the back-flow of the subject's own expired air and the inhalation of any pathogens from previous test subjects. After use, the funnel attachment is easily exchanged, providing assurance of a hygienic solution.

​With its easy-to-use, single-button operation via the OK button, the Alcotest 5000 is the latest generation of Dräger's proven, simple-to-operate alcohol testing devices. Using its two additional arrow buttons, you can navigate easily and for example: view the latest test results, reset the test counter, check for the next scheduled calibration date, or set the menu to a different language. The instructions for the test process are language-neutral and easy to understand, thanks to symbols on the display.

Where the tester and the test subject are not adjacent (for example, a driver seated in the cab of a lorry), the Alcotest 5000 features a ¼" thread on the back of the device where a standard selfie stick can be attached. This speeds up the breath-alcohol testing process.

With just one change of batteries, the Alcotest 5000 can perform over 5,000 tests, whether actively (the test subject actively blows into the funnel attachment) and / or passively (for example, measuring alcohol in ambient air or suspicion of alcohol in beverages).

With over 65 years of experience, Dräger is the global market leader in the field of breath-alcohol testing. Police in many countries use devices from the Alcotest product series in everyday traffic monitoring. The Alcotest 5000 is made in Germany and meets the highest standards of quality. It uses the same, professional EC sensor technology, ensuring precise test performance and secure results.
