Wheat Ridge, CO – September 20, 2007 – Lifeloc Technologies(, a leading alcohol testing equipment manufacturer, emphasizes the dangers of underage drinking as students head back to school this fall. To combat this disturbing trend, Lifeloc Technologies now offers easy-to-use and reliable breathalyzers to schools at a special price.

According to the SAMHSA National Survey on Drug Use and Health, in 2005 about 10.8 million persons ages 12-20 (28.2% of this age group) reported drinking alcohol in the past month. Nearly 7.2 million (18.8%) were binge drinkers, and 2.3 million (6.0%) were heavy drinkers.

As a deterrent to student drinking, Lifeloc manufactures professional grade breath alcohol testing equipment used by school administrators and resource officers alike. Lifeloc’s model FC10Plus™ includes passive testing for rapid, less invasive school alcohol testing before a dance or extra curricular event. Tests can be repeated hundreds of times in rapid succession, allowing event coordinators to test students quickly at a very low cost. Passive testing can also be utilized to detect the presence of alcohol in beverage containers.

Tom Kissler, Lifeloc Sales Manager, explains that “Inquiries from High Schools and Universities are increasing steadily as more and more of these institutions implement school alcohol testing for certain events. Almost uniformly, we find, these devices are being used for deterrence and intervention, rather than for school disciplinary action or enforcement of liquor laws. With this focus on student safety, we believe school testing has become a positive use of breath testing technology that is non-threatening and non-invasive.”
