Dräger Alcotest® 6820 med

​The Dräger Alcotest® 6820 med is a special version of the proven Dräger Alcotest® series. It has been designed for diagnostic applications, where the CE marking for medical products is necessary and offers a variety of features that ease daily practices within the medical field.

Approved as a medical device

​The Dräger Alcotest 6820 med has a CE marking in accordance with EU directive 93/42/EWG for medical devices. The Dräger Alcotest 6820 med, therefore, meets all the requirements for use in surgical operations, in the emergency room and for methadone substitution therapy.

Sophisticated technology

The electrochemical DrägerSensors® delivers reliable results quickly even with high alcohol content. Blowing resistance is low, therefore the test can also be used if the test person has a low respiratory volume. The automatic adjustment measures the respiratory flow and adapts the minimum volume in such a way that air is taken from deep inside the lungs. Manually triggered collection can even be used for people who are not conscious. The device displays the test results on a backlit graphics display with LEDs in different colors and, with acoustic signals.

Safe and hygienic

​The device meets maximum hygiene requirements. This includes a patented single-use mouthpiece with a non-return valve. Another feature is the spacer which prevents direct contact between the lips and the device. When the test is completed, the mouthpiece can be removed quickly, securely and hygienically from the device.

Easy handling

​The instrument is no bigger than a shirt pocket and is easy to operate. The mouthpiece can be fitted quickly and securely. Thanks to the special ergonomic shape the device can be operated by right-handed or left-handed persons.

Recording test results

​The Dräger Alcotest 6820 med has a memory for 1500 test results. Via an optical interface, the results can be printed on the Dräger Mobile Printer or, transferred to a PC.

Low energy consumption

​The device is powered by two 1.5 V AA Alkaline batteries, sufficient for approximately 1500 tests at room temperature. Alternatively, two 1.2 V rechargeable NiMH batteries can be used. They can be charged inside the device.
