How will you be using your breathalyzer. Each breathalyzer has it’s own forte that separates itself from other breathalyzer models. Semiconductor sensors are typically used for personal breathalyzers undergoing low-volumes of testing. They’re a cheap and simple option for casual home use. But for reliable accuracy and any significant volume of testing (workplace), you’re going to need something stronger. Professional fuel cell breathalyzers are better at providing both highly accurate and more consistent BAC results.
If you have the budget, it’s recommended that you pick the ones that use fuel cell technology on account of its capability to maintain accuracy over a long period of time, not to mention that it requires less calibration than semiconductor sensors.
Also, every sensor has to be recalibrated from time to time, otherwise the device will not be accurate enough.
