Hound Labs, Inc. has created the world’s first dual marijuana and alcohol breathalyzer to detect and measure recent marijuana and alcohol use in breath. Working with senior scientists, law enforcement, and researchers, the company developed a patent-pending technology using a combination of chemistry, physics, and engineering. This novel approach resulted in the incredibly efficient and responsive technology required to measure THC in breath – a method that is more than one million times more sensitive than what is used to measure alcohol in breath today.
