Subscribe to Oneindia News

London, March 29 (ANI): Experts have come up with a briefcase-sized testing kit that helps measure alcohol content in drinks.

The new portable device, manufactured by Unisensor Sensorsysteme, also of Karlsruhe, was said to be available for 3,000 pounds and produced almost similar results to powerful lab equipment.

Dirk Lachenmeier of the Chemical and Veterinary Investigation testing agency in Karlsruhe, Germany, who helped develop and test the technology, explained a spectrometer within the system played a key role in measuring the alcohol content.

"It only takes 30 to 60 seconds," New Scientist quoted Lachenmeier as saying.

The test results have been published in Chemistry Central Journal. (ANI)
