Intoxilyzer® 800

Specifically designed for American Continental use, the CMI Intoxilyzer® 800 is the latest in CMI’s (Lion's US sister company) complete line of breath alcohol testing instruments.

The CMI Intoxilyzer® 800 utilizes the industry’s only safe and sanitary side exhaust system minimizing the operator’s exposure to exhaled breath. A large bright multi-color display, straightforward menu, and positive grip design make the CMI Intoxilyzer® 800 effortless to use while maintaining control of any situation.

The CMI Intoxilyzer® 800 has been manufactured by Lion Laboratories Ltd to operate in the harsh environment that law enforcement officers often find themselves faced with. From the structurally reinforced designed to the rugged polycarbonate/ABS (PC/ABS) material, the I-800 is built to withstand severe treatment.

This instrument incorporates the latest electrochemical fuel cell, microcontroller, and display technology to provide an easy to operate rugged screener.

The instrument should be checked with an alcohol standard at regular intervals, and recalibrated if required.  The user may do this using an AlcoCal® product; or, alternatively, contact Lion to arrange for a calibration at the Lion Laboratories Ltd facility or contact your country distributor for local support.
