The FST Standard Re-Calibration Service is for customers who just require an “Ad-hoc” recalibration of Intoximeter Alco-Sense FST breathalyser units. ITS Test Kits can offer the FST Standard Re-Calibration Service, even if you purchased your Intoximeter FST units from another supplier.
As a registered and approved Intoximeter re-calibration centre, we will undertake our thorough recalibration service on your unit. Unlike other services, we will carry out an accuracy check first to see if the unit was performing accurately. Details will be reported back to should any accuracy issues are discovered.
We will then recalibrate your unit and complete further accuracy checks, before returning it with a certificate of calibration. We guarantee to carry out this service and despatch your unit within 48hrs from receipt, working days only. This service will include a 3 working day return delivery service i.e. 5 working days in total.
Recalibration (or Calibration) of your Intoximeter FST alcohol breathalyser should be a necessary and scheduled part of your processes to enable accurate and legally defensible breath test results. Over time, an alcohol breathalyser may lose accuracy around the last calibration. This is normal. The reasons for testing will dictate how often you should accuracy check and also recalibrate / calibrate your device. Whilst different manufacturers will recommend different time frames for calibration, this is what Intoximeters recommend for the FST range:
- When used in a “disciplinary” application, every 6 months
- When used in a “non-disciplinary” or general monitoring application, every 12 months
