Breath analyzers are medical equipment used for estimating the alcohol content of a person from an exhaled breath. These devices were first introduced in the market way back in the 1940’s for the detection of alcohol in the human body. Advancements in research and development have now advanced the use of breath analyzers or breath testing devices in the medical and healthcare sector for accurate diagnosis. Breath testing devices work on the simple principle of the measurement of gases in an exhaled breath at a low concentration. Owing to their non-invasive, accurate, and quick diagnosis, breath analyzers have gained tremendous importance in the recent past.
