The BAC DataMaster: Margin of Error and Interfering Substances

HOW THE MACHINE WORKS[1]The BAC DataMaster is an evidential breath testing machine which works on the principles of infrared spectrophotometry.  Many vapors, including ethanol in the breath, absorb[2] infrared energy.  The machine captures a breath sample in its testing chamber and sends a beam of infrared energy through the sample.[3] When infrared energy passes through the ethanol molecule[4], the molecule begins to vibrate at its Hydro-Carbon bond and in the process uses up some, or all, of the energy.[5] Repeated scientific experimentation has allowed chemists to conclude that ethanol vibrates at – to varying degrees – are 3.4, 5 and...

HOW IT WORKS: The BAC DataMaster is made with two filters which work to assure that only ethanol is present in a test result.  The filters rely on simple chemistry (different absorption curves/different micron levels for interferants) to prevent acetone, methanol, isopropyl or other interfering substances from artificially increasing the result.  When an interferant is present the two filters try to reach the same ethanol result.  To get to the same ethanol level, the machine subtracts the interfering substance (derived from...
