The World Leaders in Breathalysers

Powered by BACtrack’s proprietary BluFire® fuel cell sensor technology, the all-new for 2021 BACtrack C8 Keychain alcohol breath tester is the latest in global breathalyser technology.

The C8 offers an enlarged BluFire® sensor, optimal breath capture and “Dual-Mode” operation. Choose “Standalone Mode” and your BAC results are delivered directly to a bright, easy-to-read OLED screen. Alternatively, choose “App Mode” and the BACtrack C8 seamlessly pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth.

The C8 also offers ZeroLine® functionality to tell you how long until your BAC will return to 0.00%, available on the device itself or via the app.

What our customers are saying

We like to enjoy a couple of drinks when we go out for dinner. Now we can without the worry of DIC.

Super fast shipping. Received within 24 hours. What a great quality product!

Our ED relies on accurate patient diagnosis to make critical decisions. We choose BACtrack.

Peace of mind for both us and our kids. The app allows us to check that they are safe. Thank you.

Love the accuracy. Exact same as the roadside test when we were pulled over. It’s so reliable.

We have zero alcohol tolerance. We partner with BACtrack and are committed to a safe workplace.

Who knew we would finally grow up and become sensible? Eliminating risk is a no brainer.

Everyone should have a breathalyser who consumes alcohol, it is not a luxury item, it’s a necessity

I have an interlock and I don’t want to make the same mistake again. Now I have certainty.

Our company specialises in the operation of heavy machinery. We have entrusted BACtrack for years.

Proprietary Sensor Technology.
Unparalleled Precision.

Every BACtrack breathalyser is engineered around the two factors
that most influence accuracy: sensor type and breath capture.

Blufire® Enlarged Fuel Cell Sensor Technology

Engineered by BACtrack from technology used in experimental vehicle fuel mixing, our proprietary Blufire® Fuel Cell Sensors deliver the most accurate, consistent BAC results.

Optimal Breath Capture

Breathalyser test accuracy begins with an optimal breath capture mechanism through. BACtrack alcohol breathalysers are carefully designed to exclude ambient air, fumes, and other airborne gases that can contaminate results.

Sample retest functionality solidifies the accuracy.

Accuracy Focused Engineering

We focus on our technology so BACtrack’s Pro-grade series consistently outperforms.

Precise Results

The linear response of the Blufire® Fuel Cell Sensor Technology provides precise results over the complete range of alcohol concentrations expected in the breath, from 0.000 to 0.400 % BAC. BACtrack Blufire® portable breathalyzers can accurately detect trace levels of alcohol & reliably handle very high BACs.


Blufire® models produce the most consistent and reliable results. For example, they are more likely to show the same test result when someone is tested repeatedly in a very short period of time. This means Blufire® BACtracks easily handle multiple high-frequency breath tests.

High BAC Testing

Blufire® models are consistently accurate at higher BAC concentrations. If someone is very intoxicated, for example at 0.22% BAC, these models are more likely to provide an accurate test result as compared to semiconductor models, which are less accurate at higher BAC values.

No False Positives

Blufire® models will not show a false positive due to the presence of acetone, which some semiconductor models misread for someone who is diabetic or on a low-calorie diet.

Long-Term Reliability

Extended sensor life helps Blufire® models maintain accuracy for up to thousands of tests, delivering long-term reliability.

Faster Warm-Up Time

Blufire® BACtrack models offer a faster warm-up time, a benefit when conducting high volume and back-to-back tests.

Longer Battery Life

Low power requirements help keep your breathalyser running for longer.
