How is it measured?
There are two methods of measuring a BAL inside the human body, using a glass tube or using an electronic alcohol tester.
- For measuring BAL using a glass tube, you have to blow a balloon in one go until it is filled, then you have to transfer the air into the tube, inside the glass tube there are yellow crystals, that change their color from yellow to green depending on the alcohol indulge in the breath.
An electronic alcohol tester is an easy way to test BAL; you just have to wait for 30 minutes after drinking alcohol to get accurate results. Then you have to turn on the tester, exhale your breath into the mouthpiece, and wait for a few seconds; the meter will show the result on the display screen.
Note: we will recommend you for buying an electronic tester as it is more accurate, plus there is a chance of leakage while transferring air from the balloon to the tube.
Results of the BAC test
The results of the BAC test can be in milligrams like 120ml or a percentage like 0.4%; some devices show positive or negative, meaning that you have alcohol in your blood or you don't have it.
