Implementation by State Department of Toxicology
Purpose: To clarify that the approved method for Intox EC/IR II breath analysis requires the removal of the mouthpiece from the breath tube in STEP TEN and STEP ELEVEN in order to ensure that there will not be a mouthpiece on the breath tube during the instrument's analytical purge/blank cycle, which could result in a failed blank check.
Implementation: In order to ensure compliance with the requirement that a mouthpiece is not on the breath tube during the instrument's analytical purge/blank cycle, a breath test operator may remove the mouthpiece after each delivery or each attempted delivery of each breath sample without waiting for the prompt by the instrument display.
