The FC10 Portable Breath Alcohol Tester is the true workhorse of breathalyzers. Widely used by Law Enforcement and Corrections the FC10 combines high precision, ease of use and ruggedness with affordability. The Lifeloc FC10 includes direct BAC testing and passive alcohol screening in one instrument. Passive testing does not require a mouthpiece and is perfect for rapid "zero tolerance" alcohol screening of subjects and "sniffing" of open containers. Known for its long life and fast recovery times, the FC10 is likely the only breath alcohol tester you will ever need.

For ease of use and operator safety the FC10 provides audible and graphical breath flow and alcohol content indicators to signal important test situations such as insufficient breath, reverse breath flow, possible uncooperative subjects and a pre-indication of low, medium or high BAC subject levels. Actual BAC results are displayed on the large easy to read display.

Unlike other devices on the market, the FC Series utilize a full 64 character backlit display with text prompts (rather than hard to remember status codes). For long life and test reliability, Lifeloc uses a 1 inch (2.54 mm) platinum fuel cell which is up to four times larger than competitive electrochemical cells. In passive testing, a unique double-pump breath sampling system ensures rapid testing of multiple subjects. Advanced security and lock-out features eliminate unauthorized operation.

Our EasyTab™ mouthpiece is self-aligning, easy to affix in daylight or at night and snaps reassuringly in-place. The patented design prevents operator contact with the "wet" end of a used mouthpiece. Simply push the tab to eject the used mouthpiece. As a further good hygiene practice, exhaled breath is always directed away from the operator. EasyTab mouthpieces are available in individually sealed bags of 100 or 250.

The FC Series of portable breath analyzers are manufactured in the USA by Lifeloc, CE marked and NHTSA approved as evidential instruments. International certifications, languages and units of measure are readily available.

One of the deputies said he likes the FC10 better than our current unit because it has a graph that lets the operator know if the suspect is actually blowing into the mouthpiece.

Submitted by: Police Officer from CO

The electronic calibration is very useful in the FC10 model and supports accuracy and validity in field tests!

Submitted by: Police Lieutenant from MN

I really liked the recovery time of the Lifeloc FC10 between tests. The longest I had to wait was about 8 seconds and I didn't have to do anything to the PBT itself. There is no comparison between the Lifeloc and the Alco-Sensor's recovery time. The unit also seemed less susceptible to the cold.

Submitted by: Former Deputy Sheriff from CO

By far the best PBT made, and I have used them all. It is fast, easy to use, and accurate.

Submitted by: Bureau of Investigations Officer from GA

The FC10 unit performed well and received many favorable comments from law enforcement officials. It is the easiest and simplest unit I have seen.

Submitted by: Police Lieutenant from CA

I had a demo unit and had to pry it out of the officer’s hands so that I could return it. It works quickly, easily, and is extremely accurate.

Submitted by: Deputy Sheriff from CO

The DUI officers especially like it because of the speed and ease of operation.
