All you need to get started, now supplied in one kit !
To ensure accuracy of the results, Lion SD-400 instrument's calibration should be checked periodically using known alcohol standard. These contain compressed air mixed with alcohol vapour in known concentration and available in 2 options - Short Shelf Life and Long Shelf Life. As a guide, depending on the usage a recalibration should not be required before every 6 months. These are both expiry prone products so to ensure longest expiry you need not purchase the alcohol standard before you actually require them. When required, we can supply these - Please email/call us or visit product codes FS281 and FS280 on our website.
Optional Accessories like Carry Pouch and Printer Kit also available to be ordered separately.
