*MEMS is the abbreviation for Microelectro-Mechanical Systems, a technology developed at the University of California at Berkley that employs miniscule silicon sensors or "motes" a.k.a "Smart Dust". Smart Dust, as the name implies, is the equivalent of coating a receptor microchip with micro fine powder consisting of millions of individual smart sensor motes. The use of MEMS, or smart dust, exponentially increases the sensitivity and detection effectiveness of the receptor microchip in identifying and quantifying targeted molecules (hydrocarbons in the case of alcohol breath analyzers). This increased sensitivity and accuracy however can be more readily compromised by cigarette smoke or other contaminates in the air. Therefore it is extremely important that MEMS devices be used as free from ambient smoke as possible.
Do not rely upon the analyzer to determine the level of intoxication or whether you are legally able to drive or operate equipment. Safe-Mate is designed to be used as a reference measure only to aid in indicating the level of alcohol present in the blood. Under no circumstances should the user rely on the readings of Safe-Mate to determine intoxication levels that may result in decisions to operate vehicles or equipment or participate in any type of dangerous activity. Safe-Mate makes no reference whatsoever to blood alcohol content tables or other such measures of intoxication promulgated by government, medical or other agencies or bodies.
